Good day,

Thank you for your enquiry. It has been forwarded to me to see if I may be of assistance.

Kindly clarify whether by saying she has a valid UK passport, you are saying she is a UK citizen?

I cannot find your answer. Confirm Mrs Gloria Beech passport confirms She is a British Citizen

Thanks for getting back. I hadn't responded here as I had spoken with my colleague who did confirm you had spoken via telephone. As she has her British citizen, she will be able to return to the UK and reside with no impediments.
