Hi, I am afraid that a you need to get a "recognised professional" who has known you for at least 2 years to countersign your 2 passport photos. Such a person could be your solicitor, dentist, accountant, optician, nurse or Bank manager if you know such a person.

So, unless you know a Solicitor who has known you for 2 years, they won't be able to assist you.

I hope this answers your question and if so, I would be grateful if you could rate my answer with 3-5 stars.

Kind Regards Al
