I must send my National Identity Card to SFE. However, on 5th May I'm going on holidays (abroad) and I'll need this card. My question is: Do I have to send them original card ?? or copy will be fine ??
I'm not sure if they'll be able to send it back to me by 5th of May.
PS. I'm going to send it tomorrow.
I'm non-UK applicant, but I'm living in UK for more than 5 years.
for my mom's P60 they specifically said copies as the documents will be destroyed afterwards
so if they havent said anything specific I'd send a copy just in case
It says: National Identity Card. nothing more....
Hmmm, I wasn't allowed to send a copy of my passport, it had to be the original. So I'm guessing it needs to be the original. Although YMMV.
When SF was handled by the LEA where you lived, I was able to take my passport in so that I didn't have to send it in the post.
It will probably need to be the original, I'd call them up to check.
If you do need to send the original I'd wait until after you got back. There's no guarantees you'll get it back within a month.
