This happened to somebody I knew in Canada many years ago. He ...

Citizens Advice outlines the different methods and notes that, when you're unsure of the dates, you have the option of sending the request on paper via the post (emphasis mine). You can get a copy of a birth certificate by post from the General Register Office. You should provide as much information about the birth as possible. If you do not know ...

It shouldn't be a problem. As a New Zealand citizen, you don't need a visa for transit in the UK, or even to enter for up to six months, so the fact that your visa isn't yet valid on April 24th doesn't matter.

According to Greek nationality law, A child of a Greek citizen acquires Greek nationality automatically at birth. From what I can see, you would have been both a Greek citizen and a South African citizen at birth (and still are). The difficulty, as I see it, is that when your father took up residency in 1965, his name was recorded incorrectly by the ...

No. Put your current address. It's more important for them to know where you live and where they can send things to you than it is for the address to match the one in your passport. It's entirely normal for people not to live in the same place for the entire life of a document with long validity such as a passport. If South African law requires you to ...

Who told you this? For a comparatively modern record it would be very unlikely for all copies of the Register to have been destroyed. You can search registers online and order copies at https://www.scotlandspeople.gov.uk/

I applied and received an Ancestry visa for the UK in 2009. My understanding is that you have to show direct heritage, and require either a parent or grand-parent to be British. Source from the UK government. Having to go further back - eg great-grandparents is not valid - the link must be more recent than that. So if you're asking because you don't have ...
