Re: British Passport- Issue with referee

As it happens, I supported a passport application as a referee myself today. And the application specifically asks the referee to state which category they fall under, from the list on the Gov.UK website . It is a fairly long list, so you must know somebody (such as a neighbour) who meets the requir...

My understanding of this point is not detailed and I will defer to others on this, but I believe that Swiss citizens resident in the UK can sponsor their family members up till the end of 2025. I am not sure if the sponsorship is limited to spouses only or to their extended family members, such as a...

Re: Temporary workers

what about if I call them and explain and then they send me reference for my new application!!? That may be a challenge by itself. The Home Office support line is out-sourced to a third-party contractor. So, if you were to call them, you will not actually get to speak to somebody at the Home Office.

Re: How to inform home office about baby born in uk

Are you planning to apply for a foreign passport for the baby and then apply for a PBS dependent visa for the child? If not, then there is no need for the Home office to be aware of the birth of a child in the UK. The child can reside in the UK without a visa provided it does not leave the UK. If th...
