You can upload scanned copies of all the necessary documents. Your husband’s passport will suffice as evidence of his citizenship. All the headings are generic; you don’t need to upload something for every category as some won’t apply to your application.

Thanks, BritInParis. Just to confirm: I only need to upload a scanned copy of my husband's British passport (biodata page) and that will be sufficient? In other words, I don't need to physically present the original passport at the VFS appointment?

But in that case, what is the purpose of the VFS appointment? I thought it was to check the original documents (presumably against the scans if one has self-lupoaded) and to pass my (foreign) passport for the visa if granted? Otherwise, why does the system generate a checklist for what to take to the VFS appointment (my checklist specifically lists to include copy of biodata page of sponsor's passport plus proof of citizenship such as a passport?

Correct.

The primary purpose is to provide your biometrics, i.e. have your photo and fingerprints taken. You should bring your original passport but that’s the only original document you need to bring if you have already uploaded scans of everything else.

I have not been asked to provide proof of travel history. Should I upload proof?

No, that’s generally not necessary.
