Nationality Checking Service

1. Book your appointment

Call us on 01296 382604, between 9.30am and 2.00pm, Tuesday to Friday, to make an appointment.

Appointments are available at three registration offices:

  • Buckinghamshire Register Office in Aylesbury
  • Beaconsfield Old Town Registration Office
  • High Wycombe Library Registration Office

When booking your appointment you will need to pay the appointment fee by credit or debit card.  All fees are non-refundable.  Please see our Fees page for full details.

If you need to rearrange your appointment, you can do this up to five working days before your appointment date and time. If you rearrange your appointment with less than five working days' notice, you will have to pay another full fee when you re-book.  Please note you can only move your appointment up to three times.

Please ensure you attend on time, allowing enough time for parking and traffic delays. If you attend more than 15 minutes late you will not be seen and will lose your fee.

The Home Office fees for nationality applications do not include fees charged by Buckinghamshire County Council for the use of the Nationality Checking Service

Appointments at Short Notice

We have a limited number of appointments available at short notice.  You may be able to book an appointment within two days of contacting us. 

If you would like an appointment at short notice, just let us know when you call us.  Please note, there is an increased charge for short notice appointments and your application will not be handled any more quickly by the Home Office.
