SAR

Hi
Has anybody ever had a sar request returned?  I applied for 1 2weeks ago and this morning got it back saying they were unable to process this request.  I filled it all in and sent copy of passport with a current bill. There is a box ticked saying The certified declaration evidence provided does not meet our verification criteria.  (see important guidance)  On the back page important guidance basically people over 12 must include a copy of photo identification which must be certified by a solicitor, office of immigration service commissioner firm or a reg charity confirming they cerifiy true likeness etc.  Is this true?

Thanks

Re: SAR

Yes unfortunately. All sar's are now being returned if they do not have a valid photo. I have challenged this with the office of the ICO but although they agreed it was not in the spirit of things they cannot overrule BF/HMRC.

I am coming to the conclusion these days that SAR's are of limited value in preparing a case.

Re: SAR

Is someone playing silly buggers at BF? The Government website says a passport, driving licence (photo). biometric residency card, travel document or national identity card are valid. If you DON'T have these, THEN a recent photo is required and validated by the usual suspects. WTF?

Re: SAR

Yep and if you don't include it they'll return your application!

I complained to the ICO that the Home Office were not operating within the spirit of the regulations. They agreed and said they could not do anything about it.

My opinion is that it seems to be administered by HM Visas & Immigration who have created this to identify migrants, but it has been adopted across the board for purposes it was not intended for....as is usually the case with BF.

Bloody stupid when you consider that nearly everybody has a passport or driving licence on record.
