Use our template forms when you're providing references for ID passes or for security interviews

Template letters

We have prepared these templates based on our authorised signatory training programme. If you want to vary the content, make sure that you do not amend the questions the letters pose but feel free to change the letters’ style or tone and remember that you should use your organisation's letterhead when preparing the letters. All are in Microsoft Word format so they can easily be edited.
