NEW REPORT: DIGITAL-ONLY IMMIGRATION PORTAL VIEW & PROVE MEANINGFULLY EXCLUDES PEOPLE FROM THEIR RIGHTS
EU citizens have relied on the digital only portal View & Prove for almost a year to access our immigration status. Findings of our report to the Independent Monitoring Authority suggest the system meaningfully excludes people from their rights.
The report analyses problems maintaining access to View and Prove, the key way in which people prove their rights under the Withdrawal Agreement. We consider the trends and find it is not sustainable in its current form.
EU citizens must maintain multiple elements of their View & Prove account to maintain access. We have accounts of errors and delays at each point of maintenance with severe impacts: from loss of employment opportunities, to restrictions on travel and inability to view or prove status.
Our report is informed by your experiences. If you or anyone you know have had problems viewing your status or maintaining your View & Prove account, do let us know, via our Report-It form.
The lack of physical proof of our immigration status continues to be one of the most pressing issues for us as EU citizens.
We proposed a simple possible solution, backed up by EU citizens’ testimony and advice from technology experts.
