As set out in the Government’s White Paper “The UK’s future skills-based immigration system” (Cm 9722) published on 19 December 2018, we will put the user at the heart of the design of our new single system, including legitimate travellers coming to visit, work or study here (and, of course, British and Irish citizens crossing the border), and the organisations that educate or employ them. In developing the new system and the technologies to support it, we will draw on lessons learnt during the delivery of the EU Settlement Scheme and consider whether they might be appropriate for use in the future system, for example the introduction of the ID verification app and the integrated use of data.
