Nationality Checking Service

We are part of the Nationality Checking Service which, for a charge, allows us to check your completed application.

If you wish to apply to become a British CitizenOpens new window you must first check whether you are eligible and complete an application form.  

It is the applicant's responsibility to make sure they meet all the requirements for citizenship. We cannot give nationality advice.

If you need immigration or nationality advice you can go to an immigration/nationality advisor registered with the Office of the Immigration Services Commissioner (OISC) before applying.

The City and County of Swansea are not responsible whatsoever for the outcome of the application.
