Re: Lost Passport and BRP pls HELP

I have read somewhere that Passport is not required to apply for BRP replacement if it is like to like replacement and within 2 years, is this valid? Without a valid passport & passport number the application won't proceed/move further. Just saw the below on UKVCAS website https://www.ukvcas.co.uk/...

Re: Lost Passport and BRP pls HELP

I would see if there's a way for her to apply for a passport through some fast-track process, seeing as she will need to do so before applying for a replacement BRP, which she must do within three months. There's sure to be some emergency process available by which she can get a passport quickly. M...

Re: Stage 2 Timeline

Using IDV app or opting for Biometric (don’t think this should really matter or related to decision time), can’t really assure you which one would be quicker as eventually it will depends on the type of each application case by case basis. My “personal view” based on trends is to go for biometric a...
