Dear all

I got ILR on ten years basis. My wife got ILR after one month.
So can we make joint application for naturalization provided that my 12 months are completed but my wife still has one month left for 12 months completion OR she needs to complete her own 12 months period before applying for naturalization ???

Thanks

It is up to you.
Anything over 270 days in the last 3 years and you have to apply for discretion.
How long have you been absent in the final year?
I am sometimes wrong.

HO asked me on 1st of April travel document just to confirm, that I've not been abroad. I've sent them but does anybody knows how long it will take them to give approval? In the letter, they said everything is fine, except that.

Hello All,

Guys i need some help regarding my naturalization application. I was just going through the pre application checks and came to know that i need to provide some English test certificate.

I have completed my education in India and have got a letter from institution that the medium of instruction during my course was English.

My question is that this certificate is more then enough or i need to appear for any english test here in UK as well ?

Regards
Charu :oops:

Before taking B1 test , pls check if your degree is recognised in PBS calculator and also see if it allocates 10 points for english language requirement. If yes, they take a print-out and submit it along with your original degree certificate (should be in English). This would suffice and save money too.

Thanks

Hi All,

URGENT QUESTION PLEASE:
----------------------------------

I applied for naturalization using NCS service but received a letter on 24th of March from UKBA to send the original passport. I sent that the same day and have not received any update form then until now,

I am worried around not having my passport with me, and not about anything else.

I've three questions:

1. Can I get my passport back without it impacting the usual processing - if yes, how?
2. How long it might take for them to send back my passport and will they send it along the decision
3. Is there a way to contact them and check the status (other than emailing them? )

Many Thanks

AT

Hi,
I applied through the NCS last Wednesday 9 April 2014, on the basis of 5 years Ancestry + 2 years ILR. I have not yet had confirmation from the Home Office nor have they taken the fee from my account. Unfortunately due to family illness I have had to make urgent plans to travel next week. I have my passport so that is not an issue.
My question is whether it is appropriate to let the HO know that I am traveling, or whether it isn't relevant to them now that it is outside of my 5-year qualifying period.
Can anyone advise?
Thanks.

Hi,

I don't see a reason that you need to inform HO for your travel but as they may ask you to send a document whilst you are away, it might be good to tell them. But, if you have got someone at home to receive your letters and update you, it should be not be an issue, especially when they have not even started to process your application

cheers

It is irrelevant to HO now that you have applied.
I've traveled 3 times between submitting my application and receiving approval.

Hi,

I have applied for Naturalization last week on an expired passport. I have no doubts or concerns about having used an expired passport.

However, due to changes in circumstances I will have to travel in July which means I either need to get my application approved, ceremony done, passport applied and have received the passport before that which seems cutting it too close. As an alternative option, I have been thinking about renewing my expired passport as that is fairly quick and straight-forward.

I have a couple of questions with this approach in mind.

Does anyone know if It is fine to renew my passport when my naturalization application is in flight?

Is there any other advice/options that can help my situation?

Your help will be greatly appreciated.

Many thanks

Vnadgir

I've emailed HO and they said: "A decision has been made on your application. I am not at liberty to disclose the outcome via email. The decision letter will be dispatched shortly."

After how long letter will be sent?

Hi Guys,

Just realised that when I submitted my application via NCS, I am not sure the officer made copies of my driving license to be included in my application (same document that I used for my life in the Uk test). What do you think are chances of any issues coming up with my application?

IMHO I don't think that it would cause any issues so calm down and chill :D
