Nationality checking service

NEW! You can now book and pay for the Nationality checking service using our simple Online Booking Tool

Coming Soon

We will soon be offering a passport checking service that you can choose to pay for at the same time as your Nationality Checking appointment. If your British citizenship is granted, you will be issued with your passport by the Home Office a few days after your certificate presentation. We will keep this page updated with details.

How does the Nationality Checking Service Work?

A trained registered advisor will:

  • Check that you have completed your application form correctly and have provided all of the documents needed. Please make sure you bring your completed documents and you have checked on the Settle in the UK webpage that you have all the documents you need.
  • Photocopy all the supporting documents.
  • Send the application form and documents to the Home Office for you.
