EU Settlement Scheme - Identity verification service

We are no longer able to provide the Identity Verification Service.

This was only a service to scan ID documents to help prove your identity. There are other ways in which this can be done.

When you apply, to prove your identity, you can either:

  • scan your document and upload your photo using the ‘EU Exit: ID Document Check’ app using an Android phone, or an iPhone 7 or above. If you don't have a suitable phone, you can use someone else’s phone to do this.
  • send your document in the post and upload your photo using the online application (you can take this yourself)

Find out more about the EU Settlement Scheme including how to make an application and what documents are required. 

Find out more about where you can get help with your application.
