Three routes of ID checking 

(see ID checking guidelines in Resources for full document)

 

Route 1

The applicant must be able to show:

one document from Group 1, below 2 further documents from either Group 1, or Group 2a or 2b, below 

At least one of the documents must show the applicant’s current address. If the applicant isn’t a national of the UK or the EEA and is applying for voluntary work they may need to be fingerprinted if they can’t show these documents.

Route 2

Route 2 can only be used if it’s impossible to process the application through Route 1.

If the applicant isn’t a national of the UK or the EEA and is applying for voluntary work they can’t use Route 2. If the applicant doesn’t have any of the documents in Group 1, then they must be able to show:

  • one document from Group 2a
  • 2 further documents from either Group 2a or 2b

At least one of the documents must show the applicant’s current address.

The organisation conducting their ID check must then also use an appropriate external ID validation service to check the application. EEA nationals who’ve been resident in the UK for 5 years or less may need to be fingerprinted if they can’t show these documents.

 

Route 3

Route 3 can only be used if it’s impossible to process the application through Routes 1 or 2.

EEA nationals who’ve been resident in the UK for 5 years or less can’t use Route 3. For Route 3, the applicant must be able to show:

  • a birth certificate issued after the time of birth (UK, Isle of Man and Channel Islands) one document from Group 2a
  • 3 further documents from Group 2a or 2b

At least one of the documents must show the applicant’s current address. If the applicant can’t provide these documents they may need to be fingerprinted.

 If you suspect there is a potential case of fraud call the DBS helpline 03000 200 190
