On Section 1.10 of the UK Passport Application / Naturalisation,

Resolved Question:

On Section 1.10 of the UK Passport Application / Naturalisation, it asks for my National Insurance number- I have lived in Britain as a permanent resident for 5 years (spouse) and have never worked as my "occupation" is a housewife, and as a result I have never had a N.I. number. Do I really need to get one before I send in the application? As I have no desire to work as my husband does all this.

You should just leave it blank in that case and explain in the additional information section that you have never worked in the UK and do not have a national insurance number.

It is not mandatory to have an N I number if you have not worked here.

All the best
