Nationality Checking Service

Working in partnership with the Home Office, we offer the Nationality Checking Service, checking your application form for British Citizenship to make sure that it has been completed correctly and in full.

 

For a set fee, we check the form, ensure all relevant supporting documents are present and most importantly, photocopy and certify your original documents (such as Passports) so that you can take them away with you instead of submitting them in the post to the Home Office.
