Apply for British Passport

After naturalising as British, individuals can apply for their first British passport. This is strongly recommended, as it is the best way to evidence your new nationality.

You can apply for a British passport from inside or outside the UK, although applying from inside the UK is easier and much quicker, as priority processing options are available. Like most UKVI applications, it is completed online. There are various documents you must provide, all of which should be easy to secure if you have recently naturalised.

You will need to take a digital photo of yourself, which will be used as your photograph in your new passport.

Your application will need to be endorsed by a counter-signatory who must be a British or Irish citizen; be a professional person; not be related to you; not be living at your address; not be working for the Home Office. Your counter-signatory will need to log on to the online system, and confirm your identity, that they have known you for at least two years, and that the details given in your application are correct to the best of their knowledge.

The application will cost £75.50 if completed online.

Successful entrepreneur and partner dependant visas

Deciding to choose Latitude Law firm for my visa application was the best decision my husband made. They first assisted him with his tier-1 Entrepreneur visa which was a success and later my PBS partner-dependent visa.

My first two applications were refused due to lack of relationship evidence as my marriage was fairly new at that time. Similarly we went ahead with the administrative review which again upheld the decision to refuse my application. This painstaking process was two years long which took a toll on my mental health.

By the blessing of God, we came across Mr.Hafejee at Latitude Law. His excellence, determination and guidance helped us at every step of our application. Mr.Hafejee was extremely patient with our countless queries and calmed our anxiety humbly. He is one of the most approachable solicitors we ever came across and is equipped with brilliance in his field of work. He helped me reunite with my husband after 2 years and the credit goes to his hard work behind our application.

My husband and I will always be thankful to Mr.Hafejee and his brilliant team for the wonderful service they provide. They surely are the best in this field and would truly recommend their services to everyone.
