REMEMBER TO TAKE PICTURES OF YOUR WHITE CARD AND OTHER IMPORTANT DOCUMENTS IN CASE THEY ARE LOST OR STOLEN

When you receive your white card or any other documents from the Asylum Service it is very important to take pictures so there is a record if anything is lost or stolen. You should try to make sure the photographs are very clear and that everything on the document is included, including all the pictures and writing. You should also take pictures of other important documents that you have for you and other family members, for example passports, birth certificates, marriage certificates and medical records. Having pictures of these documents for you and your family could help to prevent unnecessary delays and could help support your case if you don't have the original copies. A very good solution is to upload the pictures somewhere online, so you will also have access to them, even in case your phone gets stolen. For example you could send them via mail to a friend or family member.
