Checklist of supporting documents for permission to stay

Format for translations

Any documents not in English or Welsh must be accompanied by a translation which includes:

—certification by a qualified translator and details of the translator’s or translation company’s credentials

—contact details for the translator or translation company

—confirmation that it is an accurate translation of the original document

—date of the translation, and

—full name and signature of the translator or an authorised official of the translation company

Format for documents

All identity documents that are provided must be original, unless otherwise specified.

The supporting documents can be either originals or copies.

In the majority of applications, supporting documents are digitally uploaded prior to the appointment. You also have the option to bring the original supporting documents with you to your appointment, where they will be scanned by a staff member on the day of your appointment (for a fee). The originals will then be returned to you.

Alternatively, in cases where it is possible to use the ‘UK Immigration: ID Check’ app, the documents are uploaded digitally at the end of the submission process.

In some circumstances, eg where the application is made outside the UK Immigration Rules, you may be required to bring all your original documents at an appointment at a specified visa application centre. In this case, your passport and other original documents are retained until a decision
