I have been a silent reader on this forum and have learnt a lot from all of you. Thank you for all you do, truly appreciate.
I am due for my ILR via Tier 1 route single applicant £50k route. Just filling the online application form online and saw the question where they ask if you have been refused UK visa before, I am not sure what answer to provide, this is because I applied for UK visiting visa in 2005 but application was refused and I forgot about it, my passport expired. In 2009 I got a fresh passport and applied for my student visa for Master degree in UK and it was granted (same details as on my first passport).
I don't know if i should state the initial UK visiting visa refusal, as i don't know where the old passport is or details /reasons for refusal (I don't think I came with it to UK in 2009, never used the passport for any other applications).
My initial Tier 1 application was refused in Apr.2013 because of missing CAR document but was given right to appeal, I did appeal and won the appeal in Nov.13, but got my BRP in June.14, not sure if i should state this as a refusal. Your kind response will be highly appreciated. Thank you
