Nationality checking service

The nationality checking service is available for customers who are submitting paper British citizenship applications to the Home Office.  If you're making your application online via GOV.UK, read the information on the nationality document return service.

As a participating local authority we can check your application form, photocopy and return your supporting documents, ensure you have enclosed the correct fee, and securely send them to the Home Office.


The fee for this service is £70 per adult, and £30 per child.
