How long will it take to process my declaration?

Five working days for our initial assessment

We aim to carry out an initial assessment within five working days. But remember – we need all the documents and information detailed in this guide before we can begin our initial assessment.

The information in your declaration is valid for three months. This is the maximum we can keep your application open.

We’ll contact you if we need more information

When we have your documents and information we may ask you for more evidence. We may also refer your declaration for advice. We’ll let you know if we do this.
