To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, what the eligibility requirements are for a successful application under the private pilot of the new application process for the EU Settlement Scheme; and whether people found not to be eligible under the terms of that pilot scheme will be able to make new applications to the EU Settlement Scheme once it is fully launched.

Applicants will need to meet three core criteria to be granted status under the EU Settlement Scheme: proving their identity and nationality, showing that they are resident in the UK and declaring whether they have any criminal convictions.

We will work with applicants to help them avoid any errors or omissions that may impact on the application decision, but any applicant who is refused will be able to make a further application under the scheme later on. Whether or not an applicant is granted status under the private beta phase of the scheme, they will continue to retain their existing rights under EU law, including the right to work.
