SECTION 4 - IDENTITY CARD FOR FOREIGN NATIONALS

Note 1 In accordance with regulations 3 and 4 of the Immigration (Biometric Registration) Regulations 2008, anyone applying for an extension of stay in the UK in the categories for which this application form is specified must apply for a biometric immigration document, otherwise known as an identity card for foreign nationals. This also applies to applications at the same time by any dependants of the main applicant. For information about identity cards for foreign nationals, please see the separate FLR(S) guidance notes, which you should read before completing this form.

If you are applying as a single applicant under the age of 16, please give details below of the person who will be accompanying you when you have your fingerprints and/or photograph taken. See Note 2. Name of responsible adult Date of birth Place of birth Relationship to child(ren)

Note 2 Under The Immigration (Biometric Registration) Regulations 2008, any child under the age of 16 who is required to provide a record of their fingerprints and/or a photograph must have them taken in the presence of a responsible adult who is the child’s parent or guardian, or another person who for the time being takes responsibility for the child.

Where dependants of the main applicant are also required to apply for a biometric immigration document, all applicants will normally have their fingerprints or photograph taken on the same day. This means that you and any children applying with you will normally be expected to attend together. If there is any reason preventing you from accompanying any child under the age of 16, you must nominate the responsible adult who will be accompanying them. The responsible adult accompanying any child under the age of 16 will need to provide an acceptable form of identification, such as a passport or driving licence. If that person is not the parent or guardian of the child, they must have a letter confirming that they are a responsible adult who has a close connection to the child and has been authorised to accompany him or her.

Prison sentences of more than two and a half years can never become spent and should always be disclosed.

REHABILITATION OF OFFENDERS ACT 1974

For the purposes of answering questions 9.3 to 9.7, the following information provides guidance on actions which may constitute war crimes, crimes against humanity, genocide, or terrorist activities.

DEFINITIONS

War crimes Grave breaches of the Geneva Conventions committed during an armed conflict. This includes an internal armed conflict and an international armed conflict. The types of acts that may constitute a war crime include wilful killing, torture, extensive destruction of property not justified by military necessity, unlawful deportation, the intentional targeting of civilians and the taking of hostages. Crimes against humanity Acts committed at any time (not just during armed conflict) as part of a widespread or systematic attack, directed against any civilian population with knowledge of the attack. This would include offences such as murder, torture, rape, severe deprivation of liberty in violation of fundamental rules of international law and enforced disappearance of persons. Genocide Acts committed with intent to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnical, racial or religious group.

This guidance is not exhaustive. The full definitions of war crimes, crimes against humanity and genocide can be found in Schedule 8 of the International Criminal Court Act 2001 at www.opsi.gov.uk/acts/acts2001/20010017 or purchased from The Stationery Office (telephone 0870 600 5522). It is your responsibility to satisfy yourself that you are familiar with the definitions and can answer the questions accurately on behalf of yourself and any dependants applying with you.

Terrorist activities Any act committed, or the threat of action, designed to influence a government or intimidate the public and made for the purposes of advancing a political, religious or ideological cause and that involves serious violence against a person; that may endanger another person’s life; creates a serious risk to the health or safety of the public; involves serious damage to property; is designed to seriously disrupt or interfere with an electronic system. Organisations concerned in terrorism An organisation is concerned in terrorism if it commits or participates in acts of terrorism; prepares for terrorism; promotes or encourages terrorism (including the unlawful glorification of terrorism); or is otherwise concerned in terrorism.

SECTION 12 - DECLARATION

I confirm that the photographs submitted with this form are a true likeness of myself and any dependants included in the application, as named on the back of each photograph and that I have had the opportunity to see the UK Border Agency (UKBA) photograph guidance.

As required to do so by The Immigration (Biometric Registration) Regulations 2008, I confirm that I also apply for a biometric immigration document for myself and any dependants applying with me. If I am a single applicant under the age of 16, or if any dependent child under that age is applying with me, I understand that the Home Office may make enquiries about any responsible adult nominated by me to be present when my/their fingerprints and/or a photograph are taken. I confirm that if, before this application is decided, there is a material change in my circumstances or new information relevant to this application becomes available, I will inform the Home Office.

I understand that my details may in certain circumstances be passed to fraud prevention agencies to prevent fraud and money laundering. I also understand that such agencies may provide the Home Office with information about me. Further details explaining when information may be passed to or from fraud prevention agencies and how that information may be used can be obtained from the UKBA webite.

I understand that all information provided by me to the Home Office will be treated in confidence; that it may be disclosed to other government departments, agencies, local authorities, the police, foreign governments and other bodies for immigration purposes or to enable them to perform their functions; and that, if such bodies provide the Home Office with any information about me which may be relevant for immigration purposes, it may be used in reaching a decision on my application.

I understand that documents provided in support of this application will be checked for authenticity; and that false documents will be retained and may result in my application being refused and in my prosecution and subsequent removal from the United Kingdom. I understand that the Home Office may also use the information provided by me for training purposes.

I understand that the Home Office may make enquiries of the institution(s) named in sections 5.2 and/or 7.2 of this form in order to establish whether I meet the requirements of the Immigration Rules with regard to satisfactory attendance and progress. I consent to the institution(s) named in those sections disclosing details of my attendance and progress to the Home Office in response to any such enquiries. I also consent to their informing the Home Office on their own initiative if I cease to attend any course of study with them for which I have been granted leave to enter or remain in the UK.

I am aware that it is an offence under the Immigration Act 1971, as amended by the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999 and the Nationality, Immigration and Asylum Act 2002, to make to a person acting in execution of any of those Acts a statement or representation which I know to be false or do not believe to be true, or to obtain or to seek to obtain leave to remain in the United Kingdom by means which include deception.
