The UK’s future skills-based immigration system will make use of the latest digital technology to improve customer experience, increase security and detect abuse. Nearly all applications for individuals seeking to visit, work or study in the UK are now made online. However, under the future system we want to simplify the process further so that all users understand what they need to do and what they are entitled to do.

We will continue to explore other new technologies to improve application processes, including, for example the ID verification app developed for the EU Settlement Scheme, and we will learn lessons from its use in the EU Settlement Scheme and consider whether it might be appropriate for use in the future system.
