I am currently in the process of applying for a UK visitor's visa, and one of the questions on the form pertains to whether I have been issued a UK visa in the past 10 years. If the answer is "Yes," there is a field labeled "Date of visa issue" (referred to as "Date of application" in the PDF form).
I would like to confirm which specific date is being referred to as the "Date of visa issue":
- Is it the date indicated on the visa itself (valid from date)?
- Does it correspond to the date when I received the email of acceptance?
- Or, is it the date when I submitted my biometrics?
