Applied in December, approved in February. Payslips were the mo...

Re: SHORTEST DURATION ,QUICKEST WAY from CITIZENSHIP to PASSPORT PROCESS.

Whilst I agree that HMPO on their website say they do not allow fast track for first time applications, ironically if you call them and ask, they allow it. I applied for my first passport after naturalisation on the super-express priority option (call before 10AM, pick up at 1PM - c.£90 extra). Thi...

Re: UKVCAS or Old Service?

After completing your online application, UKVI will send you an email notification after a couple of days. It’s annoying you don’t get an email confirmation that your biometrics and supporting docs have been received too, but there’s no risk that they won’t receive it after your appointment. The ol...

Re: UKVCAS or Old Service?

there are only few ukvcas services that offer free appointments. and the available time slots could be in the middle of February. i think there is no way to know if there are available appointments until you pay for the service. or maybe they can tell you with their phone centre (£2.5 per minute). ...

I do apologise in advance because I’m sure this topic has been covered in the past. But just to check, especially with the new UKVCAS in place. I know it’s ok to travel while pending naturalisation.

Brazil citizens have a visa-free entry into the UK similarly to US citizens if I'm correct? Meaning the airline should allow you on board as you don't require a visa? The question is what the border force would say if you ask for a "up to 6 month visitor stamp" and the child is actually coming to li...
