Re: Advise needed for proof of living, passport gap between old and renewed

UC statements will be fine, the amount awarded doesn't matter, and once partner was in work P60 or pay slips for the remainder is also fine. Are you a British citizen and partner married to you? Not sure of your statement " basis of 5 years as she got ILR on 10 years basis in Nov 2019" - the five ye...

Re: Can the director of a dormant limited company be a referee?

Unfortunately the member (@kash87) hasn't been back since Feb 2021.... so we don't know what the actual outcome was (if any). I think trawling through older posts may lead you (and others) to see problems where there are none - and overthinking in the process. Nobody wants to loose their fees so we ...

Re: Can the director of a dormant limited company be a referee?

I read some old posts from last year of people who had no issues with immigration but were denied naturalisation on the basis on "deception" in their immigration applications? Just wondering if this is happening frequently nowadays? Can't comment on how frequent this might be - we only see what has...

Re: Can I view and submit my referee forms before payment?

If HMRC tell you that you don't need to file self-assessments for your circumstances then you don't have to - it's not a requirement for naturalisation, and you are going by the advice from HMRC. It won't do any harm to mention your self-employment in a separate note to your application and pointing...

Re: Transit Visa to Netherlands, Germany and France

Standard UK ILR fees didn't go up due to Brexit .... the government loaded the fees in order for immigrants to subsidise the Home Office even more than they did already. Prominent among the fees is that for naturalisation, now standing at about £1300 (not counting test fees, etc). One of the previou...

You can explain the mistake in the cover letter and give the details of your applications.

If you can still upload documents write a covering note explaining the error and providing the necessary details. If not you could probably ask at your appointment for UKVCAS to upload this. Alternatively, you could email UKVI: furthernationalityenquiries@homeoffice.gsi.gov.uk This is not something ...

Re: Opening bank account whilst on EU Family Permit

The family permit is only valid for 6 months (a "visa" facilitating entry to UK, not a residency document), during which time she needs to apply for PSS. It may be better to get that application done before opening a bank account. Here's an example of a bank's ID requirements: https://www.lloydsbank...

Re: Cancelled passport at UKVCAS appointment

UKVI does accept applications with expired passports (or even no passports) for both children and adults, UKVCAS process the biometrics and documents.
I would take both BRP and old passport.

Re: Settle Status -how is it checked ?

Older daughter is a US citizen?
US citizens are normally visa free to enter the UK (as visitors) so shouldn't be a problem to board the return flight.
At the UK border she shows the expired BRP card and explains - settled status doesn't expire on the card expiry date.
