If you’re an EU, EEA or Swiss citizen, you and your family will be able to apply to the EU Settlement Scheme after March 30th 2019.
Eu settlement scheme
From Monday, 1 April, Barnet Council will be offering support with the digital ID verification process as part of your application to the Home Office. Please note the council cannot advise on eligibility or likelihood of success of your application.
If you cannot use the ‘EU Exit: ID Document Check’ app, the council can check and verify your passport in person. Please note to access the Home Office app online you will need an Android phone with NFC (Near-Field Communication).
You can check your phone settings to see if it has NFC - NFC is what the app uses to scan your document.
If your mobile phone or other device cannot access the online app and you're eligible to apply for settled status, you can attend an appointment at Barnet Register Office at Hendon Town Hall.
During your appointment, you will need:
- Your current valid EU biometric passport or valid biometric residence card – your document will be scanned and verified. The scan will confirm your identity so that you’ll be able to make an application for settled status. We do not retain your passport and in most cases you won’t be asked to send your passport anywhere else during your application.
- A mobile phone that can receive SMS text messages
- A valid email address – you will be required to complete your application at a later date
Please note, this service does not accept national identity cards. The cost of the service is £14 (including VAT). Appointments will take place between 9am and 4pm, Monday to Friday.
To book an appointment, please contact 0208 359 2074.
