Basically, I recently submitted an application for a standard uk visa and there was a section of the form that I initially answered, but eventually deleted from my application i.e."have you ever been known by any other name?". The question appeared ambiqious to me as I also interpreted it to mean if I had made older passports in any other names.
In reality on my previous applications, I always pled the fifth in this section, but because the new application wouldn't let me proceed to the next section, I filled that section, but eventually edited it out of my final application.
It is worthy of note that I have always ever maintained the same name on all my passports since inception in 2003, but at the same time, I also think I might at one point or another probably submitted school certificates in my original birth names during at least one of my previous 2 student visa applications.
Now, I am worried the ECO might interpret this as me purposely lying and wonder if I never had a maiden name etc. I would just like to know if it might affect my application. Hmm..I just did the below to save myself from heartache i.e.I wrote in (not free of charge though. It came with a charge) to cancel my application as it wasn't possible to make changes after submission.
Dear UKVI, Please, it just occurred to me that I misunderstood some of the questions asked or didn't notice they were changes in some of the questions asked as against the last time I applied. In view of these unintended errors therefore, I hereby write to cancel my current application and pray you to put the processing of my daughters' own on hold until I file in a new application, which will be as soon as possible.
