On the 31st December 2020, EU citizens in the UK become third-country nationals, but unlike any other foreign residents, they will have no physical document proving they have the right to live in the country they call home. 

According to polling undertaken by the3million and the Northumbria University, 90% of EU citizens (1) want the reassurance of such a document, as they are worried about the reliability of having a status that is only recorded digitally. This may affect their ability to access housing, the NHS and job opportunities.

There are also other concerns about data privacy and security, most notably that the digital system in its current form constitutes overly intrusive state surveillance which no other groups in society are being subjected to.


We are calling on the UK Government to give EU citizens in the UK the option of physical proof of their settled status (2).

This petition is brought to you by the3million, the main organisation of EU citizens living in the UK. The purpose of the3million is to fight for our rights through advocacy, media, activism and litigation.
