Immigration Controls: EU Nationals

Question for Home Office

UIN 1866, tabled on 13 February 2020

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, whether EU citizens will be required to provide evidence of settled status or pre-settled status by Border Force officials when entering the UK after the end of the transition period.

EU citizens will not be routinely asked to prove they have been granted status under the EU Settlement Scheme in order to re-enter the UK, but systems will be in place to allow border officials to make such checks where necessary.

Once the new points-based immigration system is fully introduced, Border Force will be able to identify those individuals granted status digitally without the need for the individual to provide evidence.
