  1. As of 1st November they now require finger prints with new applications. The online system is down, you can't post the application....bloody nightmare atm.

    Hmm, not sure I’d want my finger prints in the hands of the Chinese government!

    I imagine it's their own fingerprints in their hands? :p
     
  9. So today I flew up to Edinburgh. Nearest place to me (Littlehampton) that had an appointment. I drop of my form ECT expecting them to courier back to me. But no, they only use regular post (my passport?) and it takes 10 days. Or it can be collected on Wednesday, in Edinburgh.
    I've never been so happy to have a jock friend, thanks Mike Knox. (Btw, Mike is looking good. Not 100%, but certainly better than he was).
