tier1extension wrote:1. Once I get the British Citizenship after getting an ILR, would my British Citizenship remain with me even if I am away from the UK for more than 5 years? I am asking because the ILR visa gets cancelled if the holder is away for more than 2 years and I want to make sure if there are any similar rules for British Citizenship.
2. How long is the overall process of getting the British Citizenship?
a. How long does it take to get my application checked by the citizenship checking service?
b. Do I have to book an appointment early for the checking service? I know there is no PEO for British Citizenship applications.
c. Once my application is checked and I submitted it, how long do I have to wait on average before my naturalisation application is approved and I am notified?
d. Once I get the naturalisation approval notification, how long does it take to get my British Passport and Citizenship application approved?
I cam to UK on WP in 2007, then i moved from WP to HSMP in 2008 and gone for the extension in 2009. so i am going to complete 5 yerars by May 2012. But i am away from UK for 3 months 9 days and my total stay away in 5 years is 195 days. I was there in india for my personal reasons so i can't show them the any compassionate reason. My tier1 general migrant is due in Feb 2013. so what do you suggest. do you want me to go for the Tier1 extension or do you want me to go for the ILR
