    It's a 4000 page document to be completed in triplicate. Every member of your party must complete their own document regardless of age or writing ability of number of arms missing. Such questions to be answered include "how long are your middle toenails" and "how many times a year do you eat Spam". All questions must be answered completely in red white and blue biro and must be submitted at least 22 years before your date of travel. These will be marked and lost and burnt and will need to be redone four times before they actually find yours. It will then be returned because your signature is 2.3mm too high.





    I don't know. :D

    LOL and she was moaning about you drawing a moustache on her portrait ???????

    Seriously Hellie, it is the green form but online.... once completed you will be authorised, pending authorisation or denied ... this is then valid for 2 years, and on each trip within the 2 years, you go back online with your unique reference number, and update the flight and accommodation information....

    it is a tedious process, but one we have no choice in I am afraid...

    It must be done a MINIMUM of 3 days before travel.... but I really wouldn't leave it that late to do.

    yeah but given you know predictable stuff, that must mean that you know stuff everyone else knows, which means the stuff you know isn't that relevant, so means you know nothing much of anything worth knowing......errrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr i think.

    yep everytime you have completed one trip and have another one confirmed, you need to update your information.

    If you do not remember your reference number, then I am sure you can recall it with your passport number.
