What documents are needed to apply to the EUSS?

Due to COVID-19, the Home Office will accept alternative evidence of identity due to circumstances beyond the individual’s control or due to compelling practical or compassionate circumstances. For example, if there is no functioning national authority to provide documentation and if an individual is a victim of modern slavery and documents have been retained by the trafficker.

If your passport or national identity document have expired, they may still be valid due to special regulations implemented because of COVID-19.

There is published guidance regarding expired passports or national identity documents with some countries automatically extending their validity. Full Government guidance, including details of extensions to expired documents, is available on the EU Settlement Scheme caseworker guidance webpage on the GOV.UK website.
