Re: New online FLR(M) form - my experience so far

Leaf, Below might be useful: -One can start online application 8 weeks in advance, so that's pretty good. -They do ask for birth certificates for both parents, we couldn't provide one and explained in the cover letter. -They do ask for applicant's travel abroad in this relevant period, no need to pr...

Re: New online FLR(M) form - my experience so far

Yes you are right, it didn't say in checklist, but please send it to be on safe side. Even passport photos are not required, but I send them anyways... Eg of Cover Page: Applicant’s Documents • Cover Letter • Applicant’s Passport • BRP card • 2 Photographs • English Language A2 certificate (original)

In the existing one..after paying, just post all your docs, passport, declaration pages signed and the checklist to the Sheffield addres...

Well, it was almost midnight when I was finishing the application, so I might have missed the text about the passport photos.

Re: IHS increase again?

Not sure how it would work as they probably want you to pay the fee valid at the time of the application. I’m keeping a close eye on it. The fees just keep going up. It takes them a fraction of the price to process it. For these amount of money premium should already be inlcluded. I refuse to pay p...

Re: FLR-M new online application asking birth cert of parents

Hi srimurty, i am in same situation. My wife doesn't have birth certificate but I do. It seems we have no choice but to submit online only, as the paper one is for those who are applying for fee waiver. I have checked the paper form and it doesn't ask for birth certificate of parents. As per you, th...
