Question for Home Office

UIN 175926, tabled on 25 March 2021

Holders of EU Settlement Scheme status are issued with a letter from the Home Office which provides clear instructions as to how and when individuals can update their details using the online service.

In addition to this relevant information is available on by following this link:

Update your UK Visas and Immigration account details - Update your details (

We advise applicants to use the online Update Your Details service to update their passport information whenever it changes. When an update is made, the applicant will then use their new passport number to access their digital status.

Updating document details is advised, but not mandatory. Applicants can continue to log into their status using the document number they applied with.
