You do not have to use our checking service. You can apply direct to the Home Office or use a solicitor or other agent.
But if you do, make sure they are properly qualified to give you advice, and are registered with the OISC (Solicitors and others registered with the Law Society do not have to be registered with the OISC).
You must attend your appointment yourself.
If you are married or in a civil partnership and want to make a joint application, both of you must attend.
Children under 18 don't need to attend
The appointment takes between 45 and 90 minutes depending on how many people are applying.
The fee is £78 per adult and £18 per child in addition to the Home Office fee. Family rates are also available. All prices are inclusive of VAT.
You need to pay a non refundable deposit when you book an appointment:
This will be deducted from the checking service fee.
You cannot book an appointment without a deposit.
Your Home Office fee will be posted with your application so you cannot pay with cash.
You can pay by postal order, cheque (made payable to ‘The Accounting Officer, Home Office’) or by credit or debit card.
Our checking service is not there to give you immigration advice. If you have queries about your application you should contact your legal advisers or the Home Office.
ESOL Entry 3, Level 1, Level 2 will be replaced by IELTS Life Skills and GESE (Graded Examination in Spoken English).
Please contact our Citizenship Team 0114 2053087.
