3. Documents you must provide
You’ll need documents for yourself and your dependants (partner and children under 18) for your asylum screening.
Documents you should bring (if you have them) include:
- passports and travel documents
- police registration certificates
- identification documents, for example identity cards, birth and marriage certificates or school records
- anything you think will help your application
Documents to prove your UK address
If you’re already in the UK, you and your dependants must bring documents that prove your UK address.
You’ll need different documents depending on whether you’re living in your own accommodation or staying with someone else.
Living in your own accommodation
You’ll need to provide documents showing your full name and address. This could be a:
- bank statement
- housing benefit book
- council tax notice
- tenancy agreement
- household bill
Staying with someone else
You’ll need to provide:
- a recent letter (less than 3 months old) from the person you’re staying with to confirm you have their permission to stay
- documents showing the full name and address of the person you’re staying with, like a council tax notice, tenancy agreement or household bill
