Re: General discussion after BC and Passport application

I haven't seen any rule that says you can't use the same referee for BC and P.A. so you should be fine. I also think that GPs are accepted, they are people of professional standing and registered with a professional body, so they should be accepted. I submitted my application on the 3rd and got a no...

Re: General discussion after BC and Passport application

A passport is just an option, Troca; you don't need it, so you can apply whenever you like.

Re: General discussion after BC and Passport application

I know it's not the end of the world haha I was just wondering if that could be a problem, because it's read by a computer or it will be ok, because I wrote it clearly on a separate paper; I was wondering if anyone has had a similar case...

Re: General discussion after BC and Passport application

Re: General discussion after BC and Passport application

Thanks Amber, Hopefully, they won't lose my documents or get my post code wrong as some other applicants state above. I'll try to submit it on Friday or Saturday; good news if it's taken less time now :) Sounds about right, but usually around half the time at the moment. Yes the extra £3 will return...
