How to apply

 


Android App

  • Use the Home Office’s EU Exit: ID Document Check android app to scan your document details and take a photo of yourself.
  • It is unlikely you will need to post us your document.
  • If you do not have a suitable phone, you can use a friend or family member’s. You can then save and complete your application on any device.
  • If you are an EEA or Swiss national you can use your passport or a national identity card with a biometric chip.
  • If you are not an EEA or Swiss national you must use your biometric residence card.

 


 

By post
