Re: UK Student Visitor Visa application submitted with error

Hi Lucapooka You mentioned in your post that on VISA4UK website FAQs it is mentioned that corrections can be made with a pen. I am trying to find the relevant FAQ but it might have been taken down. What is the latest advice if we have made a mistake in the application that is already submitted. Many...

Re: Travelling first time since becoming British Citizen

Thank you dr_me for your very clear post. However I have one issue. I do not have NICOP. I do not have deep knowledge on this but I can't see any issue in using Pakistani passport for the journey. So on airline system I will key-in my Pakistani passport details and on my return journey show them ILR...

Re: Travelling first time since becoming British Citizen

Thanks Ozair I think you got it wrong I want to just use my Pakistani passport not British. I will only use British to enter back into the country by presenting it at the immigration on London Heathrow. I want to use my Pakistani passport and ILR for check-in purposes. Will there be any issues with ...

Re: Travelling first time since becoming British Citizen

Does ILR become invalid after becoming British Citizen? Anybody used Pakistani passport while checking-in online and faced any problems? Once you enter the passport details it will remain the same for both going out and coming back journey. Just to recap to keep things simple I want to use Pakistani...

Re: Travelling first time since becoming British Citizen

If I use my british passport for flying then it means I need to get a visa to Pakistan isn't it? How would it create problem at the check-in desk? For them being British is irrelevant isn't it? I am using my Pakistani passport to fly to Pakistan and on return I will show my Pakistani passport along ...

Travelling first time since becoming British Citizen

Is this how people use it? I am...

Re: Can HMPO force to change name?

Thanks again for your reply That has given me little bit relief but as you mentioned in the case we are discussing there was an intention to change the name but it seems that this intention was not specified anywhere so how come passport office can question the intention. You wouldn’t know the answe...

Can HMPO force to change name?

Hello Members, I am creating a thread out of another member’s experience with HMPO (Passport office). See exerts below. Can HMPO do this? I am in the same boat and what should I reply with if I receive a similar call. Is it based on some law or just one case worker’s preference? by SgtBellPepper » T...

Re: British Passport application processing timelines (only)

I discussed the long saga previously on this thread. Long story short, we originally applied under my wife's maiden name (which is what her spousal visa, ILR, and naturalisation applications are under and approved!) and they didn't like that. So we had to submit a new application form, photographs ...

Re: Passport application – Section 3 (uncancelled passports)

To me uncancelled passport means passport which are not expired. I think what it is trying to capture is if people already have dual nationality then they send both their passports.

Am I right? Otherwise how can someone has two uncancelled passports from the same country? Is it not illegal?

Passport application – Section 3 (uncancelled passports)

Hello Members Section 3 says “You must send all uncancelled passports with the application” which is quite clear to me but read nearly all the posts about this section on the forum and there seems to be conflicting advice. Some posts say include only recent passport as per the form. Some say include...
