EU Settlement Scheme: apply for an administrative review

BY RAVI MERHAS – HEAD of PRIVATE CLIENT SERVICES

If you applied to the EU Settlement Scheme

You’ll be told in your decision letter if you can apply for the decision on your application under the EU Settlement Scheme to be reviewed. This is called an administrative review.

You’ll find your decision letter attached to the email we sent you following your application under the scheme.

You can apply for an administrative review if either:

• your application was refused on eligibility grounds
• you were granted pre-settled status but think you qualify for settled status

You can apply for an administrative review from inside or outside the UK.

You can also make a new application under the EU Settlement Scheme at any point – for example, if you want to move from pre-settled status to settled status. This application will be free.

If your settled or pre-settled status was cancelled at the border

You’ll be told in the letter given to you at the border if you can apply for the decision to cancel your settled or pre-settled status to be reviewed.

You can apply for an administrative review if your settled or pre-settled status was cancelled because:

• there has been a change in your circumstances
• you gave false information

You can apply for an administrative review from inside or outside the UK.

If you arrived with an EU Settlement Scheme family permit and your leave was cancelled at the border

You’ll be told in the letter given to you at the border if you can apply for the decision to cancel your leave under the EU Settlement Scheme to be reviewed.

You can apply for an administrative review if your leave was cancelled because:

• there has been a change in your circumstances
• you gave false information

You can apply for an administrative review from inside or outside the UK.

How to apply

You must make your application for administrative review within 28 days of the date on your decision email.

Fees

It costs £80 per person to apply for an administrative review.

The fee will be refunded if:

• the original decision is withdrawn due to a case-working error
• your application for a review is rejected because it’s invalid

The fee will not be refunded if your decision is changed solely because you’ve submitted new information or evidence. If you want to submit new information or evidence, you can re-apply to the EU Settlement Scheme for free instead.

Sending new information or evidence

You can send new information or evidence with your application for a review. The application form explains how to send this.

You do not need to resend information or evidence that you’ve already provided to the Home Office.

Get a decision

You’ll usually receive the result of the review within 28 days. If the Home Office need more time, they will let us know when you can expect to receive a decision.
