The EU Settlement 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 have commenced a wider public beta phase on 21 January.

Over the two private beta test phases, over 30,000 applications have been re-ceived and more than 90% of those individuals have already been successfully processed through the scheme and granted status under it. We have published separate reports on both private beta test phases setting out further details of the outcomes. The reports can be found here:
