Re: British Citizenship application submitted in May

Point 2: It shouldn’t be an issue Point 1: I personally think it shouldn’t be an issue either as it was a very short employment and people can easily forget about it, if they find it in their records they should assess it as that. Which Visa were you on when you became a director of a company? Hi ag...

Call them and see if you need to send a letter. How did you include the recent ones and at the same time you answered no? I have previo...

My referee does not want to give his passport number but he does have one, so when I answer yes in the online application it asks for the number and it can not be empty. So what should I add it, so do I just put 000s and then explain a...

You need to attach the photograph to them and then scan them. Obviously if you wrote something on the back of the photos (signature and date) it wont appear in the scan but that’s fine. No just scan the referee documents. You cant send any physical copies, the whole UKVCAS process is digital. Thanks...
