[quote=“Slartibartfast”]You no longer need someone to countersign your photo as long as you are recognisable from your last one.

If you do get it countersigned, it needs to be someone who has known you a few years, so someone you mean on a forum can’t help you there. Last time I got my old boss to sign it. Isn’t there anyone you know back home, a friend of the family or someone…
EDIT: oh wait, THIS says something different [/quote]The site you linked to says this; “If this is not possible, then the application can be countersigned by a professional from the applicant’s present country of residence. A note should be included supporting the countersignatures if they do not meet the countersignatory criteria.”
