Re: visit visa query - self employed invitee

thanks for responses, so you are saying there is no need to show my business bank details?

They have been to the UK before, about 3 years ago but at the time I was in full time employment so got letters from my company etc. Obviously can't do that as I run a ltd company now.

Re: PLEASE HELP :/ Refused Parent of a UK Child Visa

Did you get more evidence of how you will be involved in your child's day to day upbringing, in the previous rejection they have mentioned lack of clarity on that as one of the reasons. Make sure you include something that shows definitive plans of you upbringing your child along with the mother.

When you apply for your first British passport, you need to send your current passport to them which they will return to you later. I am not sure how you are saying you can travel as you will have no passports
I assumed OP has not submitted documents yet..if this is incorrect then apologies.

Re: Travel documentation options (limbo between citizenship ceremony and British Passport)

I was in a similar position, if you ring the HMPO office directly rather than the call centre mailine they are generally much more helpful. Just google the particular office's number and speak to them. Even though they say 6 weeks when I rang them , i had BP within 2 working days of calling them, al...
