The Nationality Checking Service (NCS) is no longer available. To apply online visit GOV.UK and use the UK Visa and Citizenship Application Service (UKVCAS), managed by a commercial partner, Sopra Steria. You attend an appointment at a service centre to submit your biometric information (photo and fingerprints) and supporting evidence (including proof of identity).
The Home Office have set up an assisted digital support service that is available if you don’t have the appropriate access, skills or confidence to complete an online application.
The Assisted Digital Service aims to ensure that nobody is excluded from making an immigration application due to lack of digital skills or access to a computer. Eligible customers are offered telephone support, or face-to-face support at a library or their home, to help them access and complete the online form. This service does not provide immigration advice.
We no longer offer the Nationality Document Return Service (NDRS) and Joint Citizen and Passport Checking Services (JCAP). To apply online visit GOV.UK.
