I have applied for (pre-) settled status but am still waiting for a decision. If I travel abroad, how will I prove my rights to a UK Border control to come back to the UK?
We recommend that when you travel, you always keep the passport / identity document / residence card with you with which you applied to the EU Settlement Scheme. It would also be a good idea to print out the letter that was emailed to you when you applied, which has a title ‘Certificate of Application’.
If you have a Certificate of Application for an application that was submitted before 30 June 2021, the certificate will give you the right to enter the UK.
