Nationality and citizenship

Nationality Checking Service

The Nationality Checking Service (NCS) checks completed application forms for British Citizenship.

Joint Citizenship and Passport Service (JCAP)

The Joint Citizenship and Passport Service (JCAP) is a new initiative set up between the Home Office and the Passport Office. It allows new citizens to apply for their passport at the same time as naturalisation.

European Passport Return Service (EPRS) 

The European Passport Return Service (EPRS) copies your passport and sends your application for Permanent Residence (PR EEA) to the Home Office, enabling you to keep your original passport.

Settlement Checking Service

The Settlement Checking Service (SCS) checks completed application forms for Indefinite Leave to Remain (ILR). We only check SET(M) applications (spousal visas).

We are unable to check SET(0) or Permanent Residence (PR EEA) application forms.
