EU Settlement Scheme 2019

Applying for an EU Settlement Scheme

We are one of the local authorities to provide identity document scanning for those applying to the EU Settlement Scheme.

This service is available to resident EU citizens with a valid EU passport, and to their non-EU citizen family members with a biometric residence card issued by the UK.

We scan and verify your passport or biometric residence card to confirm your identity so you can then make an application to the EU Settlement Scheme. You must not start your EU Settlement Scheme application before you attend this appointment.

To take advantage of this service 

We offer a walk-in service between 9 - 4pm, Monday to Friday, at Slough Register Office, The Curve, 2nd Floor, Slough, SL1 1XY.

What to bring to your appointment

  • Your current valid EU passport or if you are a non EU family member then you need to bring your valid biometric residence card.
  • A mobile phone that can receive text messages or a device that can receive your emails - you will need to access the text or email while at your appointment.
  • You will then be able to make an application for pre-settled or settled status by yourself, using the link in the email you will receive after using our service.

Please note: this service does not currently accept national identity cards. Only the identity documents listed above can be checked. We will not need to keep your identity document. And in most cases, you will not be asked to send your identity document anywhere else during your application, although the Home Office may ask for you to send it to them, or they may ask you to attend a further appointment.

The cost of the identity document scanning service is £20 (including VAT).


At the end of your appointment we'll ask for your feedback about your experience so we can use that to make improvements to the process.

Assisted Digital Service

UK Visas and Immigration have set up an Assisted Digital support service that is available to customers who do not have the appropriate access, skills or confidence to complete an online application form. The Assisted Digital Service aims to ensure that nobody is excluded from making an immigration application due to lack of digital skills or access to a computer.

Eligible customers are offered telephone support, or face to face support at a library or their home, to help them access and complete the online form. This service does not provide immigration advice.
