Keep Southwark Safe

Apply to the EU Settlement Scheme

Southwark just isn't Southwark without its EU citizens. We want every resident in Southwark to continue to feel that this is their home. That is why we are encouraging EU citizens in the borough to register for EU settled status and remain living and working in Southwark.

If you are a European Union (EU), European Economic Area (EAA) or Swiss Citizen, you and your family will be able to apply to continue living and working in the UK. Provided you started living in the UK by 31 December 2020, you will have until 30 June 2021 to apply and your rights and status will remain the same until then. 

If successful, you will be given either settled or pre-settled status.

Apply for settled status now

You will need to apply to the Government's EU Settlement Scheme. You can apply online on the Government’s website, where you will find everything you need to know about the scheme and the application process.

This is an online only service. You can use a public computer or access free Wi-Fi in one of Southwark's Libraries.

You will need a compatible phone or tablet if you want to scan your identity document yourself. This can be your own phone or device, or someone else's.

If your mobile phone or device is not compatible, Southwark Council can help you complete your application. We can help scan and verify your ID documents at our walk-in Settlement Service in Southwark Council's registry office:

Address: 34 Peckham Road, London, SE5 8QA
Opening times: Monday to Thursday, 9am to 11am and 1pm to 3pm

This service is free of charge to Southwark residents.

We will not need to keep your ID document, and in most cases you should not be asked to send your passport anywhere else during your application for settled status.

If you have any questions, you can email us at

If you have already submitted your application, you must post your document to the Home Office, even if you attend our walk-in settlement service. If you have submitted your application without completing the ID verification process, please contact the Home Office.
