Default ukba home office reference number

Hi there,

I am currently in process of extending my Tier 2 (general) visas. I am being asked for Home office reference numbers. I know its available on any letters from home office. However, for the letters that I received after applying from PEOs, the reference is given as "Our Ref: Belfast PEO" for example . whereas, many other websites say that its a number starting with initial of my surname. I am very confused.

I will be really thankful if any of you can provide any advise on this on.

Thanks

If you don't find something like R12345 or R123456, then you don't have one and leave it blank.

Thought I would ask it here. I don't remember my home office reference number, which I might have been given in 2006 when I extended my visa within the UK. If I leave it blank on VISA4UK, it doesn't allow me to proceed , so can I write 'I do not know'?
Thanks.

Thank you Joppa. I will just put in "I do not know" in the space for the reference number. Do I still need an explanation for this in the additional info?

Could members who has left this empty or put in a note that says it is not known etc please let us know if it worked?
My partner's extension as a dependant is asking for this and so far I've failed to find this number. Did you get your extensions/visas without putting this in?
