A Citizenship Assistant is designed to guide citizenship applicants through the complex application requirements and possible citizenship routes, e.g. naturalization, marriage or civil partnership, indefinite leave to remain, etc. The interactive tool ensures a consistent approach in checking standard requirements against the information provided by the applicant and minimizes the potential for human error.
As the user inserts information about their person, heritage and reason for application, the tool automatically determines the corresponding citizenship routes and provides a result outlining all eligible ways to achieve citizenship. The tool then outlines the processes and benefits of each possibility and advises the user on the preferable option. Once this is confirmed by the user, the tool then auto-populates the relating forms to streamline an otherwise burdensome application process.

A Citizenship Assistant can also be integrated with identity verification software and government databases to run background checks, e.g. criminal background checks and immigration status checks, and to comply with international laws. In this way, the tool auto-assesses whether a provided travel document is valid for the required timeframe and whether any supporting documents are required at the time of application.

Background

Citizenship applications and assessments are complex and time-consuming processes that strain both applicants’ and governments’ resources. The online documentation provided for applicants often doesn’t suffice to ensure that forms and supporting documents are filled in fully and correctly with regard to the appropriate citizenship route and applicants frequently require legal advice when deciding which citizenship route to choose or whether dual citizenship is allowed under their specific circumstances.

A Citizenship Assistant makes the application process transparent as users are guided through an interactive questionnaire. The tool adapts to the user’s inputs and automatically assesses the possible citizenship routes and required supporting documentation. It provides the user with a full assessment and a preferable option, while taking into account timeframes, success rates and costs. The tool also checks provided user information against internal data sources to streamline the ID verification process and final eligibility assessment. It easily integrates into websites or client portals and may be connected to government databases and verification software to simultaneously process background checks and identify risks faster. Leveraging BRYTER’s rule-based logic, the tool provides an individual risk profile for each applicant against custom risk criteria and auto-generates reports to track and process any identified red flags and the overall application status.
