We offer a checking service to assist individuals who want to apply for British Citizenship. The aim of the service is to help reduce unnecessary delays in the process of applying for British Citizenship.
Our team is registered with the Office of Immigration Service Commissioner (OISC).
You do not have to use us – you can apply direct to the Home Office or use a solicitor or other agent. If you do choose to do this, make sure that 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).
As part of the service we will ensure that:
The Slough Borough Council Nationality Checking Service does not and cannot guarantee that UK Visas and Immigration will approve an application for British Citizenship, as UK Visas and Immigration deals with each application on its own merits.
