I applied for my British Naturalization on the 23 October 2018. I made my payment and have done my biometrics.
I received a letter after my biometrics saying that it will take 10 days after my biometrics was taken to be registered and then it will be handed over to a case worker.
I was told that until the required 6 months to process the application, I was not to contact them with any queries as any such queries would not be answered. If I had still not heard from them after 6 months - only then was I entitled to get a response from them.
I have less than 6 weeks left till my six months is up, but I have heard absolutely nothing from them.
In the application, they say if you do the online application it goes faster and that it will take a max 6 months - but it may happen sooner......
Does anyone know how long before your ceremony date do they normally contact you? and once you have attended the ceremony how long does it take to get your passport.
I am aware that at the ceremony you get your certificate and that you have to apply for your passport (which I will do the very same day) - I just want to know as a first time applicant for a passport - does it take longer.
I am asking this as we have have sold our home in SA and we are planning to move to the UK...... so I have literally till the end of May 2019, not only to attend the ceremony but also to apply and receive my passport.
The stress is beginning to get real
