Nationality checking service
If you are applying for naturalisation and would like the forms checked by one of our staff before being sent to the Home Office, please book an appointment (making sure you have a debit or credit card with you when booking by phone).
Before carrying on, here are some things you need to know
- this is not a fast track service and there is no guarantee that the Home Office will approve the application
- to complete the booking process, you will need a credit or debit card when contacted by a registration officer
- in Sutton, our citizenship team will check, copy and certify important documents which need to accompany the application form. Your documents will be returned to you after the service and the applications are then sent to the Home Office by secure post
The team dedicated to citizenship generally book all appointments for the Nationality Checking Service (they take calls Monday - Friday, 9am - 4:30pm and can be contacted by the public on 020 8770 6790). However, sometimes our call centre staff will be required to complete a nationality checking appointment form and will need to pass this to the officer dealing that day with NCS phone enquiries.
