what about passport country of issue? both are same or only city name is mentioned instead of country name.
Really hoping someone can help me (please!!!) I’m trying to get a visa for my wife to join me in UK. I got my UK passport from Australia because my father is English. I think I sent it to UK embassy? And it says IPS on it. The visa application has questions about my passport…
●place of issue
If we get these wrong they could knock back the visa and there goes £2000 down the drain. Whats the place if I applied from Australia? And whats the authority? Thanks
I would consult an immigration lawyer – probably the safest way to do it. Best of luck.
