Question: My husband already has his naturalisation certificate to apply for a British Passport and he is fully eligable to receive one. The problem is that on the passport application we need a PROFESSIONAL signatory that has known him for two years - but we do not know anyone as we have recently changed our doctor and dentist. The passport advice line have not helped either as they said without this my husband cannot apply for a passport. Is there anything else we can do?

The person who signs it must be someone who has known you for at least two years. They must: -be over 18 -hold a current British or Irish passport -be willing to write their passport number on the form live in the UK but not -be related to or be in a personal relationship with you -live at the same address as you The counter-signatory should be someone who is unlikely to jeopardise his professional career or reputation by irresponsibly sponsoring a passport application. The following are acceptable, although it is not exclusive: accountant airline pilot articled clerk of a limited company assurance agent of recognised company bank/building society official barrister chairman/director of limited company chiropodist commissioner of oaths councillor (local or county) civil servant (permanent), but not someone who works for IPS dentist director/manager of a VAT-registered charity director/manager/personnel officer of a VAT-registered company engineer (with professional qualifications) financial services intermediary (eg a stockbroker or insurance broker) fire service official funeral director insurance agent (full time) of a recognised company journalist Justice of the Peace legal secretary (fellow or associate member of the Institute of Legal Secretaries and PAs) licensee of public house local government officer manager/personnel officer (of a limited company) member, associate or fellow of a professional body Member of Parliament Merchant Navy officer minister of a recognised religion (including Christian Science) nurse (RGN and RMN) officer of the armed services (active or retired) optician paralegal (certified paralegal, qualified paralegal or associate member of the Institute of Paralegals) person with honours (an OBE or MBE, for example) pharmacist photographer (professional) police officer Post Office official president/secretary of a recognised organisation Salvation Army officer social worker solicitor surveyor teacher, lecturer trade union officer travel agent (qualified) valuer or auctioneer (fellows and associate members of the incorporated society) Warrant Officers and Chief Petty Officers Surely you can find someone on this list?

There are far more people allowed now than you probably realise......For example.. Any person with qualifications who has the correct spec re knowing you etc.... ie teacher, manager, and so on. There is also your doctor and dentist as well as your vicar too..... If you genuinely can not get a bona fide signatory, who complies to the new passport regulations you really are in a pickle... Good Luck. oh and Merry Christmas.....

Try your old doctor. If not then maybe his manger (if that person holds a professional qualification, such as CIMA).

do you have children?? if so then your child's headmaster may well sign it [they usually have the required qualifications to be able to do so]

You don't even need to give them the measurments. Almost any place can do it, Kinkos, drug stores, etc. They are all set up for it.
