From Brexit to Ex-Brit
How a Briton in Vienna chose the citizenship of his host country after the UK Referendum on EU Membership to negate the potential personal consequences of Brexit
I have received my Zusicherungsbescheid and have started the online application to renounce UK citizenship. I stopped at the payment section. My question is – can I send the form online with scans of my passport and Bescheid, or do I have to print it out and send my original Bescheid plus passport to the UK? I am concerned about being left without a passport until the UK authorities confirm that I am no longer a UK citizen. Thanks for the help.
I only sent copies of everything – I would maintain that you need your passport until your Austrian Citizenship has been conferred. After all, the wording of the law is that you have up to two years to prove you have renounced.
Thanks for this comment. I will do the same as I don’t want to be without a passport.
