Step 2: Documents to be produced
If any of these documents is in a language other than English, a certified translation in English must also be provided.
Your documents will be returned to you by standard 2nd class post. If you wish for your documents to be returned by Special or Recorded Delivery, please enclose a pre-paid envelope with the relevant postage.
Do not delay giving notice simply because you are waiting for any of the documents to come to hand. If time is getting short it is better to give notice first and then pass the documents to the registrar when they become available; but they must be made available to the registrar before the ceremony. Provided the documents are in order the ceremony can proceed as arranged.
The registrar, in certain circumstances, will ask to see your valid passport or other document to provide evidence of your nationality.
If you are not British, not an EEA National or not Swiss
In addition to the documentation requested above you must also complete a Home Office Declaration of Immigration Status.
The above document must be submitted at the time of giving notice, failing to do so will result in the return of your application. In addition to the declaration, depending on your answers on the declaration, please supply the relevant documentation that the declaration requests.
