Re: change referee after submitting application

Hi There, Anyone any idea how to change a referee after submitting visa/citizenship application. Many thanks. There is no official guidance. My suggestion is to white out the name and signature of the old referee and get your new referee to sign. Then send to UKVI with a covering letter explaining ...

Re: Hong Kong passport

I haven't done the passport application yet, but did they not ask you for details of any/all passports you hold in the application? Maybe you included this in your B(OTA) registration application and HMPO have access to that data? If the B(OTA) application is similar to Naturalisation, then this is ...

Re: New UKVCAS appointment attended

Your experience is the same as mine and many others. The UKVCAS site still seems to be "live" but there is no need to worry. They have a poor system of communication and do not notify anyone about what they have done. Just be patient, some applicants from December have already been approved.

Re: Advice on filling form AN for naturalisation

The online application process will tell you when you can print out the forms for referees to sign. You need to input their personal data into the online form first (the data required is the same as the paper AN form).
