About this app

The EU Exit: ID Document Check app lets you confirm your identity online, as part of your application to the EU Settlement Scheme.

By using this app, you will not need to send us your identity document by post.

Who can use the app

You must be resident in the UK and either:

• be a European Economic Area (EEA) or Swiss national
• have an EEA or Swiss national family member, if you are not a national of a country in the EEA or Switzerland

If you are not an EEA or Swiss national, you must have a UK issued biometric residence card or permit (provided you are in the UK) to use this app. If you do not have one, you will need to apply by post instead.

Before you start

You will need:

• your passport or national identity card, if you are an EEA or Swiss national
• your UK issued biometric residence card or permit (provided you are in the UK), if you are not an EEA or Swiss national and have an EEA or Swiss national family member
• a well-lit area, so that you can take a good quality photograph of yourself

If you use a national identity card without a biometric chip, you can still use this app but will need to send us the card by post.

How it works

You will:
1. take an image of your document
2. read the chip in your document using your phone
3. scan your face using your phone
4. take a photograph of yourself for your digital status

What happens next

The app only helps confirm your identity. You must complete the rest of your application online separately. We'll tell you how to complete your application when you finish using the app.

Privacy and security

The app is safe and secure. Your personal information will not be stored in the app or on the phone when you finish using it.

We recommend you use this app on Android 10 or above. For information on staying safe online please visit the UK Cyber Aware website.

Passport chip scan doesn't work. It is either unable to find the chip, or breaks contact immediately, telling me I need to hold it steady, meanwhile bombarding with popups that I will need to scan chip later. And when I do go to scan screen, I am back at unable to scan. Got new passport last week and been using phone to pay for things for years

It doesn't work, the say "there is a problem with our up. Close and try later" The next msg says "connection lost. Check the phone is receiving signal or is connected to WiFi" Ive tried with WiFi 2G,5G and with data mobile provider. It never worked 😒

It stopped working, now the only thing it says as soon as you open the app is "there is a problem with our app, close the app and try again later". It's been like that for about a week, I emailed the developers but haven't heard back from them yet.
