Yes. Loss reported to Police.
I have waded through the web-site and conclude:
I have to apply for enrollment to get a Biometric Residence permit
I get an Interview date/time
I then visit one of the nominated Post offices for finger printing
I then wait for issue of my BMP
I then use the BMP to apply for an NTL by post
I receive NTL
I can then leave UK to arrange replacement for Stolen Passport in Home Country and I can then be re-admitted to UK under same conditipons as present. I do same for my 7yr old son?? or do I apply for Family BMP?.
Hi,Thanks for your question. If I have provided you with an answer, kindly click ACCEPT.
My colleague Alex has kindly passed this across to me to deal with.
As Alex has stated above, it should not be a problem obtaining a replacement visa, however, in order to first do so, you need to obtain a replacement Passport from the Kazakhstan authorities.
If this is not possible, you will have to apply for a Biometric Residence Permit and then subsequently a No Time Limit (NTL) endorsement, which will be endorsed on an Immigration Status Document.
Once this has been issued, you will be able to travel to your home country and then obtain a replacement passport.
I hope this answers your question. If so, kindly click accept.
I have been to one of the recognised Post Offices for issue of Biometric passport (Old Street London). They have given me form SE/04/01. This is titled United Kingdom Passport Application. This appears to be written for UK residents. When challenged they acknowldedged this was not for NON-UK personnel...are they right. You told me I cannot get replacement for my stolen NTL without first getting a BMP.
Is SE/04/01 what I complete to apply for BMP.If not which form?.
I have looked into this in some detail and unfortunately, you will have to find a way to obtain a Kazakh Passport.
If you contact the Kazakh Embassy in the UK, they may be able to issue you with a Travel Document which would allow you a single trip to Kazakhstan from where you can apply for a new passport.
With regard to the replacement Visa, you are able obtain a replacement Visa from the UKBA. As you do not have a Kazakh passport, the Visa will be issue on an Immigration Status Document. This is an A4 sheet of paper which will have your Vignette endorsed upon it. This will allow you to travel to and from the UK without any hindrance, however, it is not a Passport.
As you are a Kazakh National and not have yet obtained UK Citizenship, your passport can only be issued by the Kazakh authorities. If they are unable to issue a passport in the UK, they should be able to issue you with a Travel Document which will allow you to travel to Kazakhstan. Your Immigration Status Document will allow you back into the UK.
My visa was printed in my passport which was STOLEN.
I followed your instructions Which were get an NTL. To do this I need a Biometric Passport but the specialists centre in Old Street PO told me this is incorrect and I checked by ringing UKBA help desk. I Need an Immigration Status Statement. I asked you above to tell me which form was needed. Please answer my question.
The form you require can be obtained on the following link:
If you have a copy of the Visa Stamp and the Letter that was sent to you at the time, you will have to write to the UKBA, Croydon Office, and inform them of the circumstances and provide details of the lost passport and any Police Reports.
The UKBA will then make a decision on whether to issue you an Immigration Status Document with a replacement ILR Vignette.
The process is purely discretionary and there is no set form.
The codes to which you refer above are codes on a type of Visa and do not relate to any specific forms.
If I can be of further assistance, please feel free to ask further questions.
