Checks will streamline application process


People applying for British citizenship can take advantage of a new checking service for both citizenship and passport applications.

Nottinghamshire County Council’s registration service currently checks citizenship applications at a cost of £65 for adults and £45 for children and the new additional passport checking service available at the same appointment will cost residents an extra £10 per application.

Prior to this service people would have to wait for the completion of their citizenship application before they can begin their application for a new passport.
