There are temporary changes to Standard and Enhanced ID checking guidelines as a result of the coronavirus outbreak.

This change will enable ID documents to be viewed either via video link or for scanned images to be used in replacement of original documents and verified via video link.  It is important to note that the applicant will be required to present the original versions of these documents when they first attend their employment or volunteering role.
