Settlement Checking Service (SCS)
Can I use the SCS if I’m using the premium one-day service at the Public Enquiry Office (PEO)?
You can use the SCS before you go to the PEO. If you want to use the PEO you must book an appointment with them online before you book your appointment with us.
Please note that you must pay the full visa fee when you book the PEO appointment on the Home Office website.
We will check and organize your application so that you can take it to the PEO complete and in order. When you go the PEO you will be taken through security, have your biometric details taken and then be asked to wait to see a caseworker. You will receive the decision on the same day. Your biometric residence card will be posted to you within two weeks.
