There?
Expert:  LawyerAk replied 9 days ago.
It would be best to write to the home office to inform them so they can issue another vignette in passport. I will send home office address.
Customer: replied 9 days ago.
The vignette goes on the passport so where do I submit the passport or would I be required to give my Biometrics again?

Await response from home office before sending your passport. They may ask for biometrics.
