Exclamation Copy of Documents

Hello Everyone,

I am confused in gathering documents. My fiacee trying to gather all documents in UK asked Lawyer to write sponsorship letter and lawyer listed all the documents in same letter and signed by her, her dad(sponsor) and Lawyer.

Now my question is..Does she need to make true copy
(attested) of passports and other documents? ...

Please help me guys......I am running out of time....

Thanks

Basically she needs a photocopy of every original document she sends in. For passports, she sends her current passport (no copy needed), any previous passports (to show her travel history) and just a photocopy of biopage of your British passport (no attestation or certification necessary). When originals are submitted, just a simple photocopy will do (as consulate can compare the two). She will then get all her original documents back when her visa is processed (and the consulate keeps a copy if they want to).

Its illegal to send passports across national waters, so a copy of the passport is fine to hand in with all of your documents. I did color copies (and the passport because I didnt know it was illegal)
But a copy of the photo part and (i would say the outside of it to safe) should suffice.

Do I really need to provide with the supporting documents all my previous passports as well?

I thought they only needed my current one. I know that in the application it asks about "details of any previous passports, covering the last 10 years" but the one previous to my current one was from 1997-2002. Do I have to submit that one too with its photocopies? :/

Yes, if you have it.

Mine had expired in 2004; I renewed it in 2010, in my maiden name. The expired '04 one was never returned after the renewal, so not only did I not have it, I didn't have the number, either.

In my settlement visa case, I sent the UKBA the current (in my new married name), and the renewal that the passport agency punched holes in to indicate it had been superceded (with colour photo-copies of both). I wrote on the application why I didn't have the one that expired in '04, and they never said another word.

And yes, I got the visa-I am returning to the UK tomorrow morning-YEA!!!! The UKBA returned the passports with my originals of all supporting documents.

Thanks! I'll have to make more copies, then D:

I'm happy that you got the visa. From what I read, you were waiting for it a month or so and that you had an emergency to join your husband in Scotland. I hope everything goes well for both of you.

Thank-you He's having more tests tomorrow while I'm in-flight, we should know something by Tuesday next.

I'm very glad the visa came through when it did! I had planned to start that day trying to get my passport back so I could get home for at least six months on a visitor visa, but now I'm going home with the probationary 27 months-one less thing to worry about.
