I am trying to prove my right to work in the UK. I emigrated to the UK approximately 25 years ago and came with a right of indefinite leave to remain in the uk stamped in my passport. However that passport has been misplaced and this now providing a barrier for me to find employment. How can I access the documentation from the home office proving my status.The country the passport was from was Zimbabwe. I arrived at Heathrow and all the relevant documentation was processed there. If I remember right it was April 1991. The right of indefinite leave to remain in the UK was issued in by The British High Commission in Lusaka, Zambia.I provide all this information to the the DSS in Slough, Yew Tree Road. I have tried to retrieve the information from them under the data protection act but have yet to receive it. They say they have it but dont know how to access it.
I am prepared to wait
I have tried applying to the home office but they haven't helped. My national insurance number is ***** 19 22 75 D. Maybe this would help.
