When choosing Royal Mail Special Delivery from our “Standard/Special Delivery” or “Priority Service” you can add the name of the person that you like to be able to receive your documents on Step 4 on your Online Application. This is particularly helpful when Royal Mail leaves a “while your were out” card and this person needs to collect your documents from Royal Mail collecting offices, if his/her name is not on the address it could be difficult to collect your documents for you, as Royal Mail collecting office will ask for a proof of ID and proof of address from recipient.
