You don't get an acknowledgement for attending the appointment or anything.

You now just wait to hear back.

It is normal.
Fabulous, thank you very much!

Visits abroad in the 5 years qualification period.

Hello, I did my biometrics enrolment today. And when I logged into the UKVCAS account, I've noticed that my "visas" pages were scanned by the officials. In my application, I told them that I was abroad, but, for e.g. on one occasion I went back home to Poland for 30 days and within this period of ti...

Re: Any difference between the Referees and Identity forms online and from the AN application?

Two referees forms for two different referees. Fabulous, good thing that I have good amount of passport photos printed, I thought that I needed only one. And the form itself is straightforward, just a name and signature with a date. And I told them that they have to prepare to fill in sections and ...

The link that aman90 has provided is what the online form looks like and is for all applications! You should not be using the paper form. Really? Oh wow, that makes my life much easier! So I just need to print the one for the 1st Referee and the second one for the 2nd Referee? And I thought that I ...

Days outside UK - how are they 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 o...

Partner claiming benefits - does it affects my application

Re: British Citizenship - does studying abroad for one semester counts toward absence?

I believe Vinny is correct. You are citing the requirements of a different provision of the statute relating to Naturalization, which is that the applicant must demonstrate that they intend to make the UK their permanent home. The residence requirements is different from that requirements and there...

Re: British Citizenship - does studying abroad for one semester counts toward absence?

I doubt that they will ignore the absence. Okay, but even in the document you have attached it is clearly stated, that studying abroad might be considered as an exception to the rule. Semester abroad was a core part of my degree and I can't believe that I might be penalised for this. https://i.imgu...
