All cases will be treated on a case by case basis based on any evidence the applicant can provide and assessed on the balance of probability.

The Home Office will accept all sorts of documentation, including National Insurance numbers, to help build a picture of the applicant’s life in the UK.

Where applicants cannot provide evidence of their residence in the UK, the Home Office will work with them and other government departments to build a picture of their life in the UK to ensure they can confirm the applicant’s status.
