You should note that the Border Agency reserves the right to make a decision on your application without involving you to the interview. There are penalties for giving false information or false documents - a bearer will be forbidden to visit the United Kingdom for the next ten years, so an applicant should be careful filling out the document to avoid such consequences.
An applicant should submit all the relevant original documents that they want the Entry Clearance Officer to see during consideration of this application. Your passport style photograph should be attached as well.
Once completed and signed, this form and all necessary documents should be filed with the UK embassy or consulate in the territory of a foreign state.
