Citizenship by Descent - travel info.

Recommended Posts

Could anyone advise on the citizenship by descent form filling that requires all travel details from the age of 18.  This means my daughter would need to list 14 years' worth of trips and as she works for an airline it would involve hundreds of flights, many of which are not even recorded in her passport.  


309/100 applied 17.03.18 offshore (London), medical clearance 24.03.18, ACRO 01.05.18, sponsor's UK & Aus police checks requested 18.10.18, uploaded 04.11.18. 309/100 granted 30.11.18. Validated 15.03.19.

Just do your best. And concentrate on the last 10 years. 

She may need to add a statement explaining her job and travel. They are looking to see if she stayed more than a year in total in any country or if she travelled to high risk countries. I’m sure she isn’t the only airline employee to have applied. 

As a frequent traveller pushing 60 it was impossible for me to remember everything too. Anything with a passport stamp should be recorded and I just guessed some others.

Thanks for your help rammygirl. The format is extremely tedious having to add each trip individually rather than just being able to attach a list. There's also the holidays to add which at least have email confirmations.

The tediousness of the official application process is the main reason I use an agent, I give them the raw details they do the boring bit, it costs it is worth it to me (they also give some pretty decent advice along the way as well 😉 )

I definitely don't think it's worth using an agent for citizenship by descent.  There's nothing complicated about the application just some strange idiosyncrasies such as Australia being missing from the list of "countries visited"!  I can't see any reason for this other than that they presumably have access to these records. I would have thought they would state that there's no need to list any Australian trips if that's the case.

Isn't there a question specific to having visited Australia and to add the visa number?


I just want PIO to be a happy place where people are nice to each other and unicorns poop rainbows

I haven't seen this but maybe it's further on in the form.  She can't progress to check until she's completed each page.  If so it would only show the most recent tourist visa.

Tedious is the word!  I have done three so far because I knew my youngest son and OH would never get round to it!  We are all citizens now.  Just eldest yet to qualify.

Depending on which country/countries your daughter was based in, you can make personal information requests regarding immigration records. Eg. Australia and the U.K. both provide them (Form 1359 and via https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/requests-for-personal-data-uk-visas-and-immigration/request-personal-information-held-by-uk-visas-and-immigration#types-of-request respectively)
I just recently discovered this and it would have come in very handy....
