Hi there, I disagreed with your finding. Please double check. I know I am qualify for a BOC passport if I were to apply from Malaysia. There are many people getting BOC like me from Malaysia.
My case is I am overstay in UK now.
Please search more in the net. The key thing is I am currently overstay and I would like to apply directly from UK.
I am in this category:-
• you were a citizen of the United Kingdom and Colonies on 31 December 1982
Malaysia is a British Colonies.
Hi there, that sound sensible.
How could I make a case to valid/excuse my overstay in order to apply the BOC?
