According to the EU resolution scheme statistics recently updated on October 8, 2020, the UK Home Office had received a total of 4,061,900 applications by September 30, 2020. A total of 3,880,400 applications had been submitted by September 30, 2020.

The EU Settlement Scheme implies a British government scheme through which EU, EEA (including EU countries plus Norway, Iceland and Liechtenstein) or Swiss citizens can apply together with their families in order to be able to continue living in the UK after age 30 June 2021.
Eligible family members from Northern Ireland are also eligible to apply for the program. An Irish national with a permanent residence permit may be able to stay in the UK without an application.
There are no fees for the application. The application deadline for the EU comparison system ends on June 30, 2021.
Those who succeed are given either a pre-determined or a pre-determined status.
|Completed applications based on the result (as of September 30, 2020)|
|Status done||56% (2,172,200)|
|Status determined in advance||42% (1,614,600)|
|Withdrawn or void||1% (34,600)|

The important milestone – of more than 4 million applications for the EU comparison system – has been reached and there are still 8 months until June 30, 2021.
Minister for Future Borders and Immigration, Kevin Foster, said: “European citizens are an integral part of our society, culture and community. So I am very proud that we have already exceeded four million applications for the hugely successful EU settlement program. ”
The EU comparison system, which has been fully open since March 30, 2019, processed up to 20,000 applications from home office clerks per day in its heyday.
Most of the applications processed in one month were processed in October 2019 with over 400,000 status grants.
