Ok, once again B for 1 year, did you use the same pic like you have as your Avtar? Probabily they got confused with your raised finger and took at as a offence

Thanks to all!

I've seen in russian forum that after 5 years I must get a pass, isn't it?

And what about my avatar - it's not a midle finger there, it's wedding ring .

Re: Why B?

...I must admit I had to look twice to determine which finger it was!

As others have said, its definately 5 years. I forget the name of the form you then need to fill out. I'll just go and have a look in my desk draws

After 5 years, you can apply for a pass. It usually takes a year or so
to get the pass. I think there is now a language requirement as well.
