Nationality Document Return Service
1. Nationality Document Return Service
This service is available for people who have just applied for British citizenship online at GOV.UK and wish to retain their original documents during the application process.
Nationality Document Return Service covers:
As part of this service we can:
- photocopy valuable documents such as passports, marriage and birth certificates and all other supporting documents,
- certify the copies and return the originals to you
- send completed applications by secure post direct to the Home Office
Using the Nationality Document Return Service doesn't guarantee the success of your application or that a decision will be reached more quickly.
Our staff aren't able to provide you with any advice on your application. The decision to approve your application rests entirely with the Home Office. We're unable to follow up your application for you. If you need further information, contact the Home Office directly.
We can't confirm that your form has been completed correctly or that you've submitted the correct supporting documents. It's your responsibility to ensure the application is correct. The Home Office may contact you if they require further information.
