Guys, I need some information, if anyone can help me...
I received my naturalisation certificate today and now I need to apply for the passport. In the document it is stated that "you should not travel before you receive the passport". Unfortunately, I need to travel abroad for 2 weeks (I've got another passport, which I'll use) and I am considering sending my application form after I come back. I called Her Majesty Service today and they said I don't have any restrictions on the time and when to send the form, the only thing is that I need to be in the country when I send it because they may contact me to arrange an interview.
Has anyone been in the same situation?

May I have a qualified accountant countersign my passport application?

Hi all,
I am going to apply for my first adult British passport soon hopefully.
I have 1 valid passport and 1 expired one.
In passport application form I wrote details of valid one, just wondering should I wrote details of expired one as well and should I send the expired one with other documents.
As long as I know they need just valid one and need to write details of this one only and send with other document, am I right?
Thank you.

No need to give details of expired passport. Just the current valid passport.

Yes, but take your naturalisation certificate.

Could anyone be kind enough to let me know what the Nationality class go as on the British Passport of a naturalised citizen.
Will it have the former nationality or say British Citizen?? :?

It says British Citizen. However your place of birth is also shown if I recall correctly, so that would give a clue as to your other nationality.

I think you should have some grace period like most countries have that do not allow dual citizenship to return passport? and I think Sri Lanka does allow dual citizenship... don't they?

call them... they are The BOSS...

I think so. Just take your naturalisation certificate with you for when you return to the UK, and perhaps your previous passport with the ILR stamp in it, if that is not in your current one.

If I remember correctly I read that Sri Lanka has suspended dual citizenship,you maybe able to travel with SL passport but when you renew the SL passport in UK you will be asked for certificate of proof that you are not a British Citizen specially if your current passport holds a no restrictions or long term visa. Best to check with SL Embassy / High Commission.

Hi all, quick question on child's first passport application. My kid was born in the UK (in 2013) after my spouse and myself got our ILRs. I read that he's automatically a British Citizen and can apply for passport. So with his passport application do I need to send the ILR cards + passports of both parents or sending only mother's would suffice? Thanks

Hi Guys,


You all probably be sick of this question,I was granted ILR on the 25/04/13, under 28 days i can apply on 28/03/14..
i heard rumors 28 days rule doesn't apply to BC application.

Could somebody kindly shed some light on this topic.


Cheers... have a good one...
Patience and Gratitude are best tools to have in life....

From experience, has anyone booked an appointment at a Passport Customer Service Centre to apply for a first adult passport in order to get it urgently? Is this possible after receiving the Naturalisation certificate?
Thanks.

I didn't think that there was any "urgent" procedure for a first passport, only renewals or replacements.

First passport can only be applied through post.
Fast tracks or 1 day services are only available for renewals.

Hi guys,

I have a question regarding holding two nationalities, which will be thankful if someone helps me with it. I recently become a British citizen, so now I have two nationalities, one is Citizenship by birth and the other one is British citizen.
I am wondering to know if somewhere I have to tell my nationality. My nationality will be
Citizenship by birth + British
or
only Citizenship by birth
or
I can use which of them that I want and no need to mention both of them together.

I only wants to know how the things work when you have two nationalities.


Thank u.
