Nationality checking service

Service temporarily suspended

The National Checking Service has been temporarily suspended until October 2017 when it will be reviewed. We're sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.

1. Overview

Stockport Registration Service offers a Nationality Checking Service to help with your immigration applications.

The Nationality Checking Service (NCS) is a partnership between the Home Office Nationality Group and Stockport Metropolitan Borough Council.

For a nominal fee, important documents which need to accompany your application form will be checked, copied and certified so you can keep the originals. (However, we do have to send your original Life in the UK test certificate to the Home Office).

Completed applications will then be sent to the Home Office by secure post together with the relevant application fee.
