    For info,
    Anyone applying online, you'll need to provide 2 x British Citizen Referees.

    Name, Address ( also confirm that have lived at adress for more than 3 years), Date of Birth and British Passport number.

    Edit update: All referee e-mail address also required.

    As you complete online, only after adding name and date of birth, does it then request passport number.

    Edit update: 2nd July
    Even though referee details are inputed online, you'll still need to print off declaration forms for the appointed referees to sign. Additional each referee declaration form will require a passport photo of the citizernship applicant attached.

    Hi, can a child on visa on arrival apply for his British citizenship while inside UK? Or does he need to be outside UK?

    Proof of long term residence/ documental evidence.

    Unlike visa applications, past bank statements and bills are NOT valid as evidence.

    It suggest passport, I would suggest include copies of council tax bills (as long as you have ensured your partner is also included in address).

    The Citizernship application will create a checklist of documents required,, but it my not actually list all documents that would be required to satisfy all citizernship requirements?

    It may be prudent to add documents that will satisfy all requirements according to guidance document.

    Past Visa Application info (Application number / date / fingerprint dates).

    The online process request past visa application info.
    Keep all visa applications handy, the application numbers and dates MAY assist the speed of which the application may be processed?

    Applicant Passports used during last 5 years.

    To prove total time of abscences from UK during the past 5 years, full scans of these passports will be necessary.

    Tip: Keep safe and reuse some of your past evidence used for previous visa applications.
