After you've applied
If your application is successful, you’ll be given either settled or pre-settled status. Find out what rights you get for each status.
You’ll get proof of your status through an online service. You will not get a physical document unless both of the following apply:
- you’re from outside the EU
- you do not already have a biometric residence card
Applying for citizenship
You’ll usually be able to apply for citizenship 12 months after you’ve got settled status.
If you make a mistake in your application
The Home Office will contact you before making a decision on your application, so you can correct the error.
They’ll also tell you if you need to provide more evidence before they can make a decision.
If your application is unsuccessful
You may be able to apply for an administrative review of the decision.
You may be able to appeal the decision if you apply after 29 March 2019. This is still subject to approval by Parliament.
You can apply again at any time until 30 June 2021.
If you already have an outstanding immigration application
When you apply under the EU Settlement Scheme any other immigration application you have with the Home Office will not be considered.
You’ll get a refund for your outstanding application.
