See Note 1 about indentity cards 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 immigra-
tion 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) guid-
ance notes, which you should read before completing this form.

4.1 If any children under the age of 16 are applying as your dependant(s), please give details below of the person who will be
accompanying them when they have their fingerprints and/or photograph taken. See Note 2.

Name of responsible adult Date of birth Place of birth Relationship to child(ren)

ing you when you have your fingerprints and/or photograph taken. See Note 2.

Note 2 Under The Immigration (Biometric Registration) Regulations 2008, any child under the age of 16 who is required to pro-
vide 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 nor-
mally 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.

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 all information provided by me to the Home Office will be treated in confidence; that it may be dis-
closed to other government departments, agencies, local authorities, the police, foreign governments and other bod-
ies 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 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.

mation may be used can be obtained from the UKBA webite.

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 atten-
dance and progress. I consent to the institution(s) named in those sections disclosing details of my attendance and
