Q 1.22

There's only one option here, to enter the LIUK test number. I did LIUK at the time of ILR and don't have the certificate and test number. What should be done here?
On the old form they had specifically mentioned that if you've alread done LIUK at the time of settlement then don't need to do again and there was an option to select that, but this new form seems to be stange and doesn't mention about LIUK test at the time of settlement.

Just tick in the box. In the blank space just write " Already submitted for ILR"
You do not need to worry, they will have all this informaton displayed on on their computer when they decide your application.



Q 3.2 - If the occupation is home maker (house wife) then shall I leave this and other employer details blank?

Yes.


Thanks

i entered the UK in 24/06/2006 and just this year on the 21/01/13 i went to india/nepal to travel/volunteer teaching for 4 months. The immigration requirement says
"During the residential qualifying period, you must not have been absent from the UK for more than 450 days. You must not have been absent for more than 90 days in the last 12 months."

does the residential requirement period mean during the first 5 years of me entering the uk or will my visit this year restrict me from applying for naturalisation this year. Thanks in advance.

It says 5 or 1 year preceeding the application. Meaning 5 years or 1 year are to be counted backwards from the date of application.

If you have been in the country for 10 years, then onlyy last 5 years are to be looked at. ( not the first 5 years)

If you have been in the country for 30 years, then only last 5 years are to be looked at. ( not the first 25 years)

Hi,

1) Do I leave section 6.5 (about spouse photocopies..) i.e not tick as I am applying alone. I believe section 6.7 need to be not ticked and crossed as I don't have any special circumstances. Please correct me if I am wrong.

2) Is this the correct fees form:
http://www.ukba.homeoffice.gov.uk/sitec ... y-fees.pdf

Silly question, I am filling my an form. Realised a few typo errors and so had to reprint the whole form except the already completed referee pages and few other pages.
So currently some of the pages from my application looks a bit different(..different paper!!) due to it being printed from two very different printers. would it create any issue?

You should be fine

Post by VR » Tue Dec 24, 2013 6:07 pm

T0mmy,

1. You need not tick
2. Different papers makes no difference

The link on fees takes ages to open. Take the Nationality fees from the UKBA Website(Latest) and you should be fine.
cheers

Yes I am paying £874- i assume this includes the ceremony fees.

Also is there anywhere where we can specify if we want our ceremony to be in a specific council rather than where we live.

T0mmy,

Yes the 874 quid includes ceremony fees.

Normally when you fill out the FORM AN you have the opportunity to specify the place where you want to have your ceremony.

If your Application for naturalisation has been successful and you receive an invitation to contact a local authority to arrange for your ceremony but you want to attend in a different place;

a) First call the place where you wish to have your ceremony and find out if appropriate slots and dates are available.

b) Then call 0845 010 5200 to arrange for your Certificate of Naturalisation to be transferred to this office. Usually they send this to the Council based on your Form AN and it reaches them by the following Friday after the date on the Approval letter. Can be the week later too.

c)Book your appointment at the new place.
cheers

Thanks VR.
You mean when filling the AN form we can specify where we want to have the ceremony. However i can't find any section on the AN form to specify this.

Hello guys...
I have a question regarding sections 1.5 and 1.6

My surname is long and hard to pronounce. But my first name and father's name are easy.

Is it possible to add my father's name in section 1.5 instead of my current surname and add my first name only in section 1.6 then explain why I am doing this in page 15?

example:
name: Haider Kamil Saed Al-barazanchi
name to be shown in certificate: Haider Kamil

Hi guys, good to be back, I hope you all are doing good. I haven't been on this forum for ages and it seems it has changed the layout less my eyes not good anymore! lol
In advance I want to thank you for taking your time reading my post and trying to help me and rest of the forum, I do apologize for the long writing post but I do need your help. thanks
I soon I have to apply for Naturalization and I have few question if you could help me out please:
First: Section 1.2 Current Passport /Travel Docs,,,, I only have international (Iraqi) passport. Do I have to send that, if is optional I rather not.

Second: Section 1.31 Asking about partner! well I was married to EEA national but now we are separated and submit divorce but not concluded yet! same section 1.37 asking for PREVIOUS husband/wife. should I just fill 1.37 (previous wife)?

Third: Section 2.1 Date and Place of first arrival in the UK? well I came to UK in 2003 as an asylum but got refused, I got married in 2008 and my first state was Resident Card(5 years) on June 2014.,,,,, so what date should I put on application please?
Section 2.4 If you are a family member of EEA national? well I was but as we are separated and going through divorce I guess I'm not anymore and that is not applicable, am I right? I now hold Permanent Resident Card.

Fourth: Section 3 A good character, 3.1 What is your occupation? I'm not working at the moment and I'm signed of by a doctor/got ESA benefit. Would that affect my application?

Final question:
Applied for EEA4 on 24/02/2012.
HO received on 27/02/2012.
Refusal received on 16/08/2012 dated 11/08/2012
At the court, the HO REP withdrawn the decision and asked me to send the DOC for the time before marriage.
PR dated 05/03/2013

Hi All,

I have a question if someone can answer.

I am applying for Naturalization (form AN), but I have enough loan to repay and I am planning to get IVA (Individual voluntary arrangement) to manage my debts.

Can anyone please let me know if this will make impact on my naturalization application.

Thanks

Hi Everyone,
I be grateful if any GURU can help. I'm applying for Naturalization after 5 Year Refugee and 1 year ILR.
My two daughters (15 & 16 years old) got ILR(ILE) 7 months ago from India and came UK 6 months ago. Question is, can i apply for my daughters as well for registration as BC? My wife got ILR same time as my daughters.(Not applying for Wife yet).

Kind Regards
