I am totally free from a lot of hassles- Visa free travel countries now increases from 44 to roughly 200 countries! A 12-year journey is over. I am now a British passport holder.

This is an amazing website but it is time to say goodbye. All the best to everyone that is waiting!!


lol, there aren't even 200 countries in the world. There are 196, and many of those impose visa entry requirements on the UK so chillout lol.
Well done, clever box. That's why I said roughly 200 countries...
Allow me to enjoy my freedom!
You seem to have a misconception that all countries in the world allow visa free travel for British passport holders, which is wrong. There are 196 countries in the world which already include the UK itself! Over 25 of those impose a visa for British passport holders. I only corrected your misconception you have; otherwise, enjoy you "freedom" and best of luck lol.

Pls do not use online form if you are first time adult. The parents session does not show. Already received home office letter for re-filling the form in writing. Have to ask the countersign person to sign it again.... :(

It took a bit longer for the return of the supporting documents but in general I found this last leg of my migratory journey surprisingly fast and efficient. At last I can pass through the "gates" with ease (in French "la porte" i.e. the etymology of the word) :wink:

Despite my meager posts I did consult this website often at other stages of a lengthier process, including ILR and, of course, naturalisation. I would like to thank all concerned in its operation and wish the best of luck to everyone out there in the pipeline
cheers!
