Nationality Checking Service

Cheshire East is no longer registered with the Office of the Immigration Services Commissioner and is therefore unable to offer the Nationality Checking Service.

New UK Visa and Citizenship Application Service

The majority of customers will complete their applications online then attend 1 of 57 new service centres in the UK named UK Visa and Citizenship Application Services, managed by a commercial partner, Sopra Steria.  Customers will attend an appointment at a service centre to submit their biometric information (photo and fingerprints) and supporting evidence (including proof of identity). To learn more about the new services please visit  the GOV.UK website.

To ensure that nobody is excluded from making an immigration application due to lack of digital skills or access to a computer, UKVI have set up an Assisted Digital support service that is available to customers who do not wish to complete an online application form. Eligible customers 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.
