Applicants are required to provide evidence to confirm their identity and residence in the UK, or alternatively provide evidence that an exception for the documentation required under the Scheme applies – for example, where an applicant’s age or illness are a barrier to the applicant travelling to their home country or embassy to obtain a new passport or birth certificate. Where the Home Office has doubts about the authenticity of the document supplied, then it may seek to verify the document or its contents with the organisation concerned.

The information provided in all circumstances is the information on the document or the document itself.
