Re: **** COVID19 and UKVCAS Biometrics Appointments **** (ONLY discuss here)

Hello all! Questions on UKVCAS upload document page: 1- Do I need to upload my BPR copy, and if yes, is this doc needed to be uploaded at the "Optional--> Residence in the UK" tab? (Note that a *mandatory* upload is my passport!) 2- In which tab do you upload the Police Registration? 3- Proof of Ide...

Re: **** COVID19 and UKVCAS Biometrics Appointments **** (ONLY discuss here)

Hello all! Well, this is a simple question: Just applied today for an ILR, and referred to UKVCAS for an appointment. As you know, there's no slots available now! Question: Which of the following should I do: 1) Check every day the UKVCAS website to see if they have slots? 2) Email them? 3) Call the...

Re: Absences and documents - Tier 2 to ILR

I have the same question, and I didn't quite understand CR001 answer:

The application explicitly asks you to check *two different* bullets:

- Current biometric residence permit;
- Evidence of immigration status in the UK.

So it is unclear, should I check *both* bullets, but only submit my BRP?

Re: Can I book in advance more than one Life in the UK test?

Anyway, again, this is quite a strange circumstance in which different publishers publish different material.

And answers for my questions have provided different, seemingly contradictory answers.

And I would like to solicit a formal reply, or at least to reach some consensus of users.

Dear Sir, My question was *different*, hence merits a new post. I find the treatment of the question and the decision to delete it unjustified, and shows lack of respect. The tone of your comments is also quite patronizing and I find it inadequate and disrespectful. As for the answer itself, it cont...

Is there only ONE official version for the Life in the UK book?

When booking a life in the UK test on UKVI website, one is directed to a link wherein they can purchase the book. This is the link UKVI supplies: https://www.tsoshop.co.uk/bookstore.asp?FO=1240167&AF=A3000 And this is the book one can buy from the above website: Life in the United Kingdom A Guide Fo...

Re: "life in the UK" book: where can I download a PDF?

The link you supplied by WH Smith does *not* seem identical to the book recommended directly by UKVI (which is the 3rd edition), hence, this seemingly contradicts the claim:
"There is only ONE official book."

Re: "life in the UK" book: where can I download a PDF?

Interesting. I already paid £20 for the Life in the UK book I was referred to by UKVI. So I am surprised that there is more than one official book. In any case I am waiting for the Royal Mail now, but it is of course very inefficient so I need to get hold as soon as possible of an online available b...

Hello, I need to have a quick read of this book. I don't mind paying, but the Royal Mail does not supply it fast enough. Where can I find the third edition preferably online for download? Free or not. Question 2: Is the following website an official version of the book: Weblink removed by moderator ...

Re: Can I book in advance more than one Life in the UK test?

Thanks for your encouraging words!

I do think that it is possible---and the people from the test center have just confirmed that it is!
