Could you kindly answer my question in typing please


If the Home Office have lost your passport, they should at least cover the cost of a replacement and any associated fees.

As a Bulgarian National, there is no issue regarding your immigration status and therefore, I would.suggest you have a local Solicitor write to the Home Office and demand that they compensate you for the cost of obtaining a replacement.

I hope this answers your questions. If so, kindly rate the answer and provide feedback.

If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to ask.

Many thanks
