Re: A few questions about documents to upload

Referees declarations. Do I simply upload them? I'm just slightly confused as I don't see the point of writing my name on the back of my photo and then gluing it to the form.

Therefore, while your application is in progress, you will be an Indian national only (assuming you do not currently hav...

Re: Naturalisation application through the App

As CR001 says. Basically, it's one of two options:

A) You have do a biometrics appointment
B) Your previous biometrics are recycled, and you just take a picture through the app

You have been assigned option B.

Hi, I'm entering absences and am not sure how to enter an absence where I visited 2 countries on 1 trip.
