The Home Office records the date on which all applications to the EUSS are received and concluded.

Our aim is to process all applications to the EU Settlement Scheme as expeditiously as possible. Complete applications are usually processed in around five working days.

More information about processing times for applications under the scheme is available here:

The latest published information shows the total number of concluded applications to the EU Settlement scheme was 5.27 million up to 31 May 2021.

The latest figures can be found on the Home Office’s ‘EU Settlement Scheme statistics’ web page available at:
