You can use this service to:

  • get a ‘share code’ to prove your status to others, for example employers
  • update personal details in your UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) account, for example your passport number or email address
  • check what rights you have in the UK, for example the right to work, rent or claim benefits

  • applied to the EU Settlement Scheme
  • used the ‘UK Immigration: ID Check’ app to prove your identity when applying for a visa

  • created one to get access to an eVisa (an online record of your immigration status) - you’ll have received an email about this

If you do not have a UKVI account

There are different services to prove your right to work to an employer and to prove your right to rent to a landlord.
