Re: Previous UK immigration applications in the UK or abroad?

Note the wording "Enter your reference number if known" - so you could leave it blank or use any number you have available - in your case it makes sense to use the seven digit number as it's been used throughout.

Borders closed, lock downs, etc - we have seen of lot of this lately around the world.

Scanning of passports is always allowed.

Re: Holidays after the Biometrics

IF you can do biometrics before that date, yes you can travel - subject of course to travel restrictions, such as potentially cancelled flights, immigration & quarantine restrictions, etc, both here and elsewhere.

Re: Previous UK immigration applications in the UK or abroad?

I have another question please. I am applying for Naturalisation application and I have 4 passports in total, 2 of which cover the last 5 year period but I am in UK since 2009 (when I first arrived). On UKVCAS website (Sopra Steria) do I need to scan biometrics page of all 4 passports or just 2 pas...

Re: Previous UK immigration applications in the UK or abroad?

Thanks for this - still looks like your name that's required - I expect the reference number will point them to the category (if you got the number). Haven't seen any reports here that anyone has been refused because the data was incorrect or incomplete. Main thing is to give as much data as you can...

Re: Previous UK immigration applications in the UK or abroad?

We don't have sight of the online input screens - however, the wording "Name in which you made the application" tells me it's my name that's asked for, doesn't say visa or immigration category. Is there a separate question about which category you applied for, or is there a help screen? Remember tha...

This would be your name at the time of application (names can change over the years), not the "category".

Re: british citizen in hong kong

So essentially he could arrive at the UK border and will be admitted. But he will not immediately be entitled to benefits.
Refer to this link on the habitual residence test: https://www.citizensadvice.org.uk/benef ... -benefits/

Re: british citizen in hong kong

my father is a British citizen (holds british passport) not by birth and is currently living in hong kong and has never been to uk
How did your father become a British citizen? Under "Nationality" passport states "British Citizen"?

Re: british citizen in hong kong

As a British citizen he is free to enter the UK - he has a British passport.
He will need to pass a "habitual residence test" before any benefits may be available (applies to Brit. citizens as well as migrants).

Re: Stuck in India, can I get UK GOVT HELP FOR EVACUATION?

What is the definition of "diplomatic help"? In my mind certainly, if you are imprisoned, especially where human rights are concerned. However, if you have been robbed of your British passport, cards and cash? Would the embassy just say you are a dual citizen, not our problem? And the unfortunate Br...

Re: Uploading (Unstamped) 72 Pages of Passport - Sopra Steria Website

Just scan and upload the biometrics pages and any other pages with stamps/endorsements of your passports. Blank pages not required.

Re: uploading docs to UKVCAS and travelling after submitting application

1. That should be fine, except you should upload both the biometrics page plus any stamped pages. So it's more than one file unless you can combine. 2. My personal recommendation is to get the biometrics appointment out of the way, however long it takes to get one - naturalisation is more important ...

Re: Passport application

Don't think anyone here would know - sounds like internal process speak.
I guess processing may be slow due to current circumstances.

Re: Citizenship Ceremony cancelled due to Covid-19

Under the current circumstances with a wide shut down instruction from the government I would expect that this is taken into consideration by the Home Office - it's out of your control. And 100s of applicants will be effected by this.
