App to help EU citizens register for residency in the UK has been postponed due to concerns from the Prime Minister.

Home Office plans to deploy an app registering EU citizens have been postponed due to uncertainty of status for residents arriving in the Brexit transition period.

The application has been designed to replace the current 85-page permanent residency application process, which residents are required to fill out to remain in the UK after Brexit.

The aim of the app is to speed up the bureaucratic process.

Residents were set to see a trial of the app in January, however the timetabled plans have been shunted after Theresa May insisted on different rules for those arriving during the two year Brexit transition period.

The Prime Minister said that they would be no automatic right to remain for EU citizens coming to the UK after the deadline day.
