1.My wife have few colleagues as British born and her line manager is also a British citizen.Can they give as a reference! known for 3 years.(however in the application form it doesn't mention from dates and years!! known). As long as they are over 25 and British (though whichever way) and of good character, they can be a referee. It is not necessary to list the dates since they have known your wife. The can just write 4 years if that is what it is and 'work colleague or friend'.
2ND Refree is NHS nurse but naturalised and British Citizen since 5 years.Does she need to provide her nursing registration number??.Kindly let me know.
Regards. Use the nurse as your professional referee. No she does not have to provide her nursing registration number. Doesn't matter if she is naturalised and not British born.
I do believe that while doctors are not on the list, they can still be referees. They just asked to be removed from the list because they found themselves spending, at times, half their day filling out referee forms. It was a big hassle and frankly they have hassle as it is just doing there normal jobs.CR001 wrote:Please see the list of acceptable referees. You will see that Doctors are NOT on the list.

6(1) is 5 years residence.
It is unclear from your previous posts whether you are on ILR or are BC.

Alternatively, write back to the address on the letter advising them accordingly.
