  • Proof of living in the UK

    Hello, I waiting to be given the biometric appointment and have submitted my AN application. Now I need to prove I've lived here for the past 3 years (applying as a spouse of a British citizen). I have been unemployed for the entire 3-year period that I need to send proof for. I have been a student for 2 of those years, so I suppose student loan letters would suffice, but what can I provide for the year I didn't study? Are utility bills OK, or should I contact HMRC to get proof of NI as an unemployed person? What is regarded as requisite evidence? I don't have a bank account with my sole name, but could get a letter from my mobile phone provider perhaps. I don't want to get this wrong so appreciate any help!

    Hello,

    We have covered that here:...where you'll see:
    • Documentary evidence that indicates presence in the UK during the relevant 3 or 5 years. This can be in the form of letters from employers, educational establishments or other Government Departments. A sample of these documents, at least one from each of the 3 or 5 years, should be submitted.
    • Continued presence in the country can be shown by enclosing lists of attended appointments from GPs, dentist, physiotherapist, dental hygienist and hospital consultant (i.e. hospital appointments).
    • Your children's school attendance records and letters confirming you drop them off and pick them up.
    • Bank and credit card statements showing physical transactions made in the UK.
    • A P60 from an employer would be equivalent to a letter from an employer and Government Department letters could include letters you have received from the DWP, HMRC, DVLA, or any other Government Department.
    Although the Home Office prefers official documents from government departments, if you are unable to provide them, or the other items on the list above, you can send anything that has your name, address and a date on it.

    You may want to explain in your cover letter and/or additional information section of the form, why you are unable to provide their preferred evidence.

      Just for the record, there is no need to provide evidence of lawful residence in this case as the applicant is relying on a PR card: Do I need both SS and PR - UKCEN Citizenship and Residence for European Nationals and their families
