UK Visa and Citizenship Application Services

Local authorities, such as Manchester City Council, no longer offer the EU Settlement Scheme Identity Verification Service, the Settlement Checking Service, the Nationality Checking Service or the Nationality Document Return Service. The Register Office cannot help you with your application any more.

Instead, you can find information about how to apply to settle in the UK or to apply for British Citizenship on the Gov.uk website

UK Visa and Citizenship Application Services: 

Most applications are now completed online, and the applicant will then attend a UK service centre (UK Visa and Citizenship Application Services). Applicants will usually need to attend an appointment to submit their biometric information; photograph and fingerprints, and their supporting evidence including proof of identity. Find out more about these services online.

Assisted Digital Service:

UKVI have set up an Assisted Digital Support Service that is available to applicants who cannot complete an online form. Applicants are offered telephone support, or face to face support at a library or their home, to help them access and complete the online form. This service does not provide immigration advice.
