From 28 October 2013 if you are applying by post for extension of stay, indefinite leave to remain or British citizenship on the following forms, you no longer need to provide an original passport from the British or settled person supporting your application – a photocopy of their passport or travel document can be provided instead.
Applying for extension of stay or indefinite leave to remain
Forms FLR(M), SET(M) and SET(F)
Applying for British citizenship
Forms AN and MN1
The photocopy must include all pages of the passport, including any blank pages, and we will verify it with other government departments in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998. We may request the original document at any time during the application process, and the application will be refused if you do not comply.
You must still submit your own original passport or travel document as part of your application. If you would like to get legal advice on how to meet the published requirements, send your inquiry to email@example.com or contact us on 0207 237 3388.
