Nationality Checking Service
Please note that we are not currently offering appointments for the Nationality Checking Service in Brighton & Hove. However, this is a temporary measure and we do hope to be able to offer appointments shortly. Please check this site for further announcements. (March 2012)
Since February 2007 Brighton & Hove Register Office has offered a Nationality Checking Service & is proud to be registered with the office of the Immigration Services Commissioner. Authorised by the OISC. Ref.No. F200600128
This is a partnership between the Home Office UK Border Agency and selected England and Wales local councils, and is intended to help those people who are submitting applications for British Citizenship. The Nationality Checking Service enables applicants to keep their important documents and reduce the number of requests for further information from the Home Office.
Our Checking Service advisers at Brighton & Hove Register Office have been fully trained and are registered with the Office of the Immigration Service Commissioner (OISC) to carry out this service. However, we can only provide a checking service and cannot give general immigration advice or act for you after the point of application.
For a small fee, we will check that applications are completed correctly and have been submitted with all the necessary supporting documents and the correct fee. We will photocopy and certify valuable documents such as passports and will send the applications to the Home Office by special delivery post.
