The UK Immigration ID App

Tandaan na kung papasok ka sa UK to work or study, you may be required to apply through the UK Immigration: ID Check App when uploading your UK visa applications.

The launch of the UK Immigration ID app has made the application process more easier for those who are able to use it. It permits visa applicants to show their identity without having to reserve and appear at a visa centre appointment. It is created to verify that the applicant’s identity document is authentic and confirm that the document is indeed theirs. The app indicates the initiation of a welcome effort by the UK Home Office to make the immigration process more technically -driven and rationalized. Currently, the app is only available to nationals of the EEA (plus Switzerland) and to Hong Kong British national Overseas (BNO) status holders. On the other hand, the intention of the UK Home Office is to make the app accessible to applicants from other countries sooner or later.

You can use the ‘UK Immigration: ID Check’ app to complete the identity stage of your application.

The app will:

  • check that your identity document is genuine
  • verify that the document belongs to you

You must use:

  • your biometric passport from an EU country, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway or Switzerland
  • your biometric British national (overseas) (BNO), Hong Kong Special Administrative Region (HKSAR) or European Economic Area (EEA) passport if you’re applying for the BNO visa.

The app will only work once you start your application online at GOV.UK. When you get to the identity verification stage you will be told to open or download it.

This app is only available in English.
