Re: Referees for AN naturalisation form

There is a post early in that link with a copy of a reply by UKBA (now UKVI) explaining that the list is not definitive. It also says that referees are not a statutory requirement for the citizenship process. As with all these things, if you need to find an alternative method, it is always best to i...

Re: Submitted Biometric and documents

thanks for the suggestion. Also I was wondering since Home Office asks to write name & DOB on back side of picture & paste on referee forms. Do we need to post them as well? After UKVCAS appointment. Since scanning wont show them name & DOB on photo? No need. UKVI haven't updated their methods sinc...

You will not receive any further confirmation from UKVCAS or UKVI. This is the way it is.

True it's not a big job scanning all pages but it goes up to 22 MB. I thought each file we upload should not exceed 3 MB.

did you save it as .pdf format?
adjust your scanner settings to 150dpi, a 32 page passport should be under 3MB, limit is 6MB per file

Re: English language requirement for Naturalization & Speeding Ticket

I took my test with Trinity (my nearest centre was Hammersmith in London - a two-hour trip on the train/tube). The test took about five minutes, one to one with the examiner. Discuss for five minutes on one of your chosen subjects, then five minutes on one subject from a short list provided by Trini...

Re: Days outside UK - how are they calculated?

I have two examples of being outside UK. Just wanted to check how would these be calculated? Example 1: 01/02/2016 -> flight to Ireland (6am flight) 02/02/2016 -> flight back to UK (8pm flight) How many days absence are in this case? Zero or one day? Theoretically it should be zero, as I was in UK ...

Re: A question on the online application form

So, you applied for ILR. And before that, what status did you hold? Did you make any applications to get that status from UKVI (previously UKBA)? Work permit? Student visa? Spouse visa?

Nobody knows but you how to answer the question.

Re: English language requirement for Naturalization & Speeding Ticket

I suggest you take the B1 English test, it's quick and easy (for you I think) and costs about the same as getting your degree certified

Re: Online Passport application- no confirmation email?

during online application you have to tick boxes for how HMPO should contact you, i.e. email and/or phone message

maybe you forgot to tick the boxes???

Re: Experiences using new UKVCAS for naturalisation/citizenship applications

UKVI do not require proof of address. UKVCAS ask for proof of address (they asked me) but when I asked they could not explain why they want to see it when UKVI do not request it. Therefore, there is no "definition" of proof of address. Take what you have and don't worry. Thank you so much for your ...
