Nationality Checking Service

We are working in partnership with the Home Office and Immigration Nationality Directorate to provide a nationality checking service.

So if you are applying for British citizenship, we can help by checking your application and forwarding it to the UK Border Agency.

As one of only a few nationality checking services in Scotland, this service enables people to make their applications in person at a local Council office. Appointments are available to all UK residents.

From 28 October 2013, unless you are exempt, all applicants for settlement or naturalisation as a British citizen will need to meet the knowledge of language and life requirement by:

  • passing the life in the UK test; and
  • having a speaking and listening qualification in English at B1 CEFR or higher, or its equivalent.
