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 ‘EU Exit: Identity Document Check’ app is an optional aspect of the service which allows applicants to prove their identity remotely using their biometric identity document and an android smartphone device.

We have been working closely with Apple over a number of months and expect the first IOS version of the EU Settlement Scheme app to be available in October.

Despite this there are numerous ways in which those eligible can apply, including by post.
