EU citizens make a huge contribution to our economy and society, and we want them to stay. The EU Settlement Scheme enables them to do so.

The scheme opened on a trial basis at the end of August and the second phase of live testing ended on 21 December. In light of the positive progress, we commenced the wider public test of the scheme on 21 January.

The beta test phases have provided us with a useful opportunity to prove various elements of the scheme functionality and processes, and we will continue to improve the system before the scheme fully opens by 30 March. The issue you mentioned has been fixed as part of this process.
