don't forget guys: you're already British citizens! It's not like they'd cancel your citizenship if you mess up the interview a bit!

quick question guys: for the interview - are you getting a predefined slot based on your location? Or is it just an invite and you have to call to set up an appointment?

I know a friend who is using Experian but he didn't get an alert. I think like most banks, IPS only uses one of the three agencies. In my case, it's Equifax.
equifax here too.

Agree the service is a waste and a walk in the park for those of us who have dealt with visa application forms and residency applications all our life! Only reason I did it is because they definitely process applications sent via check and send faster than if you apply directly. Check passport timel...

Given that passport was cancelled and they do only ask for uncance...
