EU Settlement Scheme
Supporting you with your application to the EU Settlement Scheme
You must be a resident of the London Borough of Sutton and present evidence to confirm your residency when attending at Sutton Register Office. For non-Sutton residents please visit the Register Office in the borough you live in.
Scanning and verification of identity documents can be completed in advance of an application for the EU Settlement Scheme.
This service is available to European Union (EU), European Economic Area (EEA) or Swiss citizens with a valid passport, and to their non-EU, non-EEA or non-Swiss family members with a biometric residence card issued by the UK.
If you do not have access to an Android device with near field communication (NFC), you can bring your passport or biometric residence card to Sutton Register Office, where it can be scanned and verified for you. The purpose of the scan is to confirm your identity so that you will be able to make an application to the EU Settlement Scheme.
You must not start your application before you attend as you will not be eligble to use this service.
Use of the app is optional, and you may if you prefer, send your identity document to the Home Office by post to verify your identity.
