2. No, but there's a proforma they need to sign. When you complete the online form there's a PDF you'll need to download for each referee.
3. The proforma could be signed in ink and then a scan emailed to you to upload however your passport photo will need to be stuck to the proforma so you would need to either post them a photograph or send them a digital photo which they'll need to have printed out on photographic paper.
4. You just need to upload scans of your documents.
5. No, the online application itself is sufficient. You'll then need to book an appointment to give your biometrics.
6. No.
7. It's better to send it if you have it but it's not a showstopper if you don't. You may wish to include a note saying your mother is deceased and it's no longer available.
Excellent thank you.
Do both of the referees need to sign the back of a photo of me?
I do have a picture of the British passport as my brother has it but he won’t send it to me. Should I upload the picture?
Should I upload my mother’s death certificate?
Should I upload my marriage certificate as my surname now is my married name?

Thank you 😀

Thank you.

I have another Question please relating to the application asking about my mother: Have they always had the same nationality?
If she had dual nationality what would I put?

Same question for my grandmother she also had dual nationality.

So long as both were British from birth then you can answer ‘Yes’.

Hi me again lol

Please help, I have submitted the online application and paid, but I thought I could submit the supporting documents online. I cannot find any information anywhere on how to do this from South Africa. Anyone got any idea. I really don't want to have to courier them. However, if I do have to courier them can I send certified copies of everything?

TIA :-)
