Identity verification for applicants who don't have an Android device with near field communication
This second phase of the pilot is testing the application process for EU citizens and their families. Feedback about your experience will be used to make improvements to the process before the scheme fully launches to the public by March 2019.
If your mobile phone or other device doesn’t have near field communication (NFC) and you are eligible to apply for settled status during the pilot phase, you can make an appointment to bring your ID document to us, 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 for settled status.
We will not need to keep your ID document and in most cases you will not be asked to send your passport anywhere else during your application for settled status.
Information on who is eligible to apply during the pilot phase can be found at UK Visa and Immigration.
If you wish to make an appointment or have any further enquiries, please contact us on 0300 123 4045 or email Registrars.Admin@hertfordshire.gov.uk
