Everyone aged 16 years and over in your home must have a Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) background check to see if anyone has any criminal convictions. We will carry out the background check so please don't complete the form and make the payment independently as we cannot refund you and we will still need you to complete our process.
If your guests have children living with them, we will carry out an Enhanced DBS check (including a check of the children’s barred list), for all those who are 16 or over in your household who are not related to the guest.
We may ask for an Enhanced DBS check (including a check of the adults' barred list) to be done if an adult guest requires additional support due to age, disability or illness, which you as the host or any adult aged 16 or over in your household intends to provide.
Formal identification process
You will receive an appointment to visit the Council Offices in Oxted to carry out the formal identification process. Each person (aged 16 and over) needs to bring three different forms of identification showing name, address and date of birth.
You can find out what documents you will need to bring and our opening hours.
Online DBS application form
Once the formal identification part of the DBS background checks has been completed, you will receive a unique link by e-mail which each person, 16 years and over living in the same property as the Ukrainian’s, will need to complete to process their online DBS application.
Please contact us to confirm:
- When all DBS applications have been submitted.
- When you receive the results, as we will need to see the document. The results will be sent directly to you and not to us.
There is a new webchat service which supports customers to submit their application.
