EU Settlement Scheme is a new streamlined, user-friendly digital application process which draws on existing government data to minimise the administra-tive burden on individuals.

We are confident that the administrative process will be simple and streamlined, and we expect most applications to be processed very quickly. In addition to the new technology and processes, we will have cir-ca 1,500 UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) European Casework staff in post to process applications.
