Naturalisation query - "proof of freedom from immigration time restriction".

Post by dooties » Sun Mar 31, 2019 11:09 pm

Good day,

I am applying for Naturalisation, and I have hit a hurdle that has me stumped.

I was born in the United Kingdom to French parents, however in their infinite wisdom they decided to register me through the local consulate/embassy and as such I'm French. (This is also the reason I do not have a BRP)

Now, since I was born here and lived here my entire life I'm not sure how I can provide "proof of freedom from immigration time restriction". I do have a registration certificate, and obviously my birth certificate is English. Would this be sufficient?

Kind regards.

When were you born?
How long were your parents in the UK when you were born?
What were they doing in the UK?

What does your registration certificate say?

It’s possible that you are already British!

I was born on the 13th of June, 2000.

To my knowledge they moved here early 1999, however due to some circumstances they we're not working during this period and this stops me from applying for residency the easy way.

The document states I'm an EEA individual exercessing treaty rights, under document type it says "Registration Document". And that's it.

Thanks

Update: Following a conversation with the Home Office I have been made aware of the Form T process, this fits my current situation perfectly so I have canned the old application and am now going through that process instead.

Form T - Good Character query

Post by dooties » Mon Jan 20, 2020 6:10 pm

Hi there,

I'm a bit hung up on this question, I've never had any criminal convictions, formal warning or anything of the sort.

The only thing I can think off was something that happened last year, I was asked to leave from an (seemingly) abandoned tarmac ground by the Ministry of Defence's private security. They advised me that the ground was restricted and I should not be there and was asked to leave promptly, they did take down the registration number of my vehicle and told me it would be passed to my local police department.

The security officer outlined nothing would come of it as it was my first time on the site and did not know otherwise, but warned me I'd get a warning from the police if I came back again (I never came back).

Do I need to disclose this on my application?

Thanks!

Form T - Referee relation definition

Post by dooties » Mon Jan 20, 2020 11:43 pm

Hi,

I appreciate all the help in getting from this forum, thank you all.

I have my first referee sorted out, for the second my mother's boyfriend agreed to go down. They live together but aren't married at all (they only moved in a few months ago). and I don't live at home with them either.

Is a relation purely by blood/legality unless they are your direct partner living with you and therefore would it be acceptable to have him?

Thanks!

Form T after EEA Settlement Scheme

Post by dooties » Thu Feb 20, 2020 6:12 pm

Hi there,

I'm aware you have to wait to 12 months after being approved as Settled to go for standard naturalisation, in my case I can apply via Form-T. Does the 12 months waiting period still apply to this as well, or can I apply whenever I want?

Thanks

If a parent was exercising any EEA free movement right in the UK prior or at the time of your birth, then you are automatically British. Else, you are entitled to register now.
