It's the professional referee that can be ANY nationality.

The other referee must be British.

I found 2nd referee he is british citizen but not a professional standing. He is a taxi driver.

Would he be acceptable.

As long has he has known you for 3 years and is of good character then it should be fine.

There is no guidance on this as far as I know, however, being realistic and practical, it should not matter a few days or weeks before the actual submission. If the signatures are months before may it's better to get them to re-sign.

NDRS as then you can apply for passport at the same time using the paper passport form.

Hi All,

Hopefully this will help others, there is a question in online application form

Have you had any other work over the past 10 Yes
years or since you came to the UK?

Now, I have been working in job for last 6 yrs no other business or else. But I was working in other country before 6 yrs which is last 10 yrs. its confusing.

So My best answer would be NO to above.

It does state, very clearly '10 years OR since you came to the UK'!!!

HO don't care about your work out of the UK.

Also, it is NOT necessary to start a new topic with each question you have on the same application. All topics merged, stick to one thread please (click to read)
