Settlement checking service
The settlement checking service (SCS) is a partnership between the UK Border Agency and South Lanarkshire Council.
It is by appointment only and is available at our office in the Council Offices, Almada Street, Hamilton.
Our staff are trained and registered to check and forward your application to the UK Border Agency. When you attend your appointment, we will check that you have completed your SET(M) form correctly and paid the correct fee. We will then copy your valuable documents, return them to you and forward your application to the UK Border Agency.
We will also check and keep your passport or travel document.
If you are applying with your dependants, their passports or travel documents will also be checked and kept.
Your partner must attend your appointment with you. Their passport or travel document will be checked, copied and returned to them.
The settlement checking service will help you get your application correct first time to avoid unnecessary delays.
