Hi

Has anyone called the Citizenship ceremony office after recieving their approval letter but not the letter of invitation. If so what questions do the Citizenship office ask when booking appointment,

Many thanks

Wow so you do know where the correct thread is to write in is so stop being a a** hole and use this website as the rules state or are you not smart enough for that? :shock:
Grantring, I think you can still express the same opinion in a polite manner please. We are here to support each other and we all make mistakes.
That is very true but with people like that they never listen to polite as you can see :roll: always a very different story if you met them in person they like to hide behind there computers

You really are such a w**ker! and as for critising some ones writing whos first language is not English is really low. I've read back over some of your posts as as a British person you write poorer than some poeple on he who's first language isn't english!
Well its clear they cant read the simple rules of the time line thread as you cant.
all of the members posting not time line post in the time line thread have no respect and a bad attitude to every other member on here so grow up and use the threads as the rules state or do you need it spelt out for you in crayon? :roll:

Well, from other posts here, I thought it was possible to book the ceremony before receiving the invitation letter. So I went ahead and called the council, but the lady asked for a number starting with 8, that it's only printed in the invitation letter. So I couldn't book it. Maybe it's not the same for all councils, but it's this way in Southwark.
My approval letter was dated 02/05, so far I haven't received an invitation letter. Maybe it's coming today.
