A new document checking service will make the UK immigration process easier.

The settlement, also known as Indefinite Leave to Remain, checking service pilot builds on the exsisting nationality checking service.

 A migrant applying for Indefinite Leave to Remain using application form SET(M) can now have their application checked by a local authority officer before it is sent to the Border Agency. Form SET(M) is for migrants who are applying for settlement as the husband, wife, civil partner, unmarried partner or same-sex partner of a British citizen or a person settled in the UK.

The service will benefit applicants by checking and returning their valuable documents.

The first local authorities to offer the service are Brent and Barnet, which launch yesterday, with another 10 local authorities will join the pilot over the next two months including:

Applicants can already book appointments in Oxfordshire and Stockport, where the service will begin next week.
