Home Office asks 101-year-old Italian man to get his parents to confirm his identity

The Home Office asked 101-year-old Italian man Giovanni Palmiero for his parents to be present when he made his application for EU settlement to stay in the UK post-Brexit. Palmiero has lived in London since 1966. When he went to scan his passport to share his biometric data with the Home Office, the system misinterpreted his birth year as 2019 instead of 1919 and he was told he would need his parents to confirm his identity for him. The Home Office has since accepted the mistake and he has been told he can resume the application
