    Hi,

    Do you know how long it takes to update ID document attached settled status? Or is there any plan to send residence card to EU nationals too?

    Ah! This is the million-dollar question!

    People have said that their records don't seem to have been updated weeks, or even months, after getting their passports back.

    This issue was brought up at the Home Office user group meeting a couple of weeks ago, where people from various organisations said the same thing about the updates, so the Home Office is aware of the issue of records not being updated in a timely manner, they also said that it's not crucially important to update the record as soon as a new passport is obtained, since there's no requirement to prove status to anyone until 2021.

    The fact that the settled status is linked to an expired passport or ID card does not invalidate the settled status - the status remains valid.


    They expect to implement a new system to update ID documents online in the future, but for now, this can only be done by sending the ID card or passport.

    At the moment, there is no plan to issue a physical document to EU nationals to state they have settled status. We know there are many organisations who are pressing the Home Office about this and it is possible that in the future they will issue a document. For now, we know this is only going to be an online status.

    I am the Group Founder and also an Admin, please refer to our Admin Team, Roles and ResponsibilitiesIf you think we have helped in any way, please support us so we can keep helping others secure their status, it is now more important than ever now EEA nationals are subject to the same immigration requirements as non EEA nationals and require proof of valid status in the UK.
