Over the two private beta test phases, over 30,000 applications have been re-ceived and the majority of those individuals have already been successfully processed through the scheme and granted status under it. A smaller propor-tion of cases were held pending further evidence of residence to be submitted from the applicant. Caseworkers are working directly with applicants on these cases.

We have published two separate reports on the both private beta phases and we have committed to provide further details in due course of the planned phased implementation of the scheme. We will continue to update Parliament as part of that process. Please see the private beta reports here:
