Citizenship application - both referees are brothers

Post by Lion_Heart002 » Tue Jul 16, 2019 6:54 pm

Good evening, I got myself in a sticky situation I think. I have paid the application fee of 3000 pounds for myself and my wife, however didn't realise that both referees must not be related. One of them is a director of a limited company, the other one a chef, but both are brothers. Still haven't given my biometrics. Any suggestions would be highly appreciated. As far as I understand I cannot now change one of the referees by providing another form at the biometrics as the application is already submitted online??? Thank you in advance.

Get another referee take his/her details ask him/her to sign a referee document and take them with you to UKVCAS with a cover letter explaining that you made a mistake and you have an additional referee to replace 1 of the brothers in your application. Make sure you get all the detail of the new referee (passport number, address, occupation, email, telephone etc...) scan the cover letter and scan your referees document at UKVCAS.
