How To apply for πŸ‡¬πŸ‡§ (pre-)settlement after Brexit

by Franz Schrepf

The UK Government is trialing to allow EU citizens in the UK to apply for (pre-)settlement after Brexit via an appπŸ“±

Download the β€œEU Exit” app from the Playstore and make sure you have your passport or residency card ready

If you are an EU citizen, scan the image of your passport. All others have to scan their residency card 🌍

Use the NFC-chip in your phone to scan the chip inside your passport. Apple doesn’t allow this, hence Android only 🍎

In the next step your biometric image is scanned (aka disco modeπŸ’ƒ)

Finally time to take a selfie 🀳

Insert your passport information manually and double check the scanned info 🧐

Continue to complete your application on the website

Only a few more questions to go!

One final declaration that you are eligible for (pre-)settlement

You can now either wait until March 30th or pay Β£65 which will be refunded (recommended in case more info is needed)

Once you paid and (if necessary) provided extra proof of your residency in πŸ‡¬πŸ‡§ you receive an application certificate

Now you can continue to enjoy the island life πŸ‡¬πŸ‡§
