To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, how many applications to the EU Settlement Scheme have been outstanding for eight weeks or more in South Belfast constituency.
21 September 2021
Our aim is to process all applications to the EUSS as expeditiously as possible. The majority of applications are concluded within 5 working days but may take up to a month. Cases may take longer dependent on the circumstances of the case, for example if the applicant is facing an impending prosecution or has a criminal record.
More information about processing times for applications under the scheme is available here:
The Home Office publishes data on the EU Settlement Scheme in the ‘EU Settlement Scheme statistics(opens in a new tab)’. It is published on the basis of local authority, rather than constituency areas.
Data on the number of applications and concluded applications by UK local authority are published in Tables EUSS_LA_01 and EUSS_LA_03 of the quarterly EUSS statistics local authority tables, which can be found at:
