Early Citizenship

Post by Elielman75 » Wed Jul 17, 2019 6:30 am

Hi all,

I have received my ILR last March. I may go to a work assignment in Italy for a year. I want to know if my employer writes to home office to ask them to issue my passport quickly let say in a month, will home office accept to do so? Are there exceptions?

First HO does not entertain communication from 3rd party. Second, what passport would anyone request. You have to apply for naturalisation after one year of PR get naturalised and then apply for a passport. Whilst applying for naturalisation, you need to be in the country for specified periods. Permitted Absence of 450 days over 5 years and 90 days in the last year. Plus being in the country on the date five years prior to the application.

There are no exceptions. Why should HO treat your application for the privilege of citizenship any differently to anyone else applying.

Note also that there is a requirement to state your future intention to live in the UK too.

It means that the date that you submit and pay for your citizenship application must correspond to you being physically present in the UK exactly 5 years ago, ie not away on holiday, business etc.
