Can I travel while applying for naturalisation

Post by okigen68 » Thu Feb 13, 2020 11:10 pm

Hi gurus,

I am eligible to apply for naturalisation in April, however will have to go abroad in July for a wedding (just 3 days).

My questions are:

1) Can I travel while applying for naturalisation? I'm non EU, so will need both passport and my ILR BRP in order to re-enter the UK.

2) I also need to apply for a Schengen visa for the wedding. Can I apply for it while the naturalisation application is still pending?

Thank you!

Naturalisation application has no effect on your travel plans. You can travel as normal as no original document is sent.
