Hi everyone, I am wondering..I have applied for naturalisation as a britis citizen. I used my permanent resident document. What would happen if it would expire before the decision? It is valid until the end of this year then it will be replaced with the eu settlement scheme.
Thx for every advice!
No issue as your document was valid when you applied - and you are likely to get a decision well before the year end, fingers crossed. So no need to apply for PR document again, or for settled status.
This is just my opinion as a member of this forum and does not constitute immigration advice.
Please do not send me private messages asking for advice - they will be ignored

Hello there
I got the same reply one month ago.emailed again on the 20th of May and was advised that it is aproved but I will receive a letter to ask me to attend a ceremony when the situarion has improved

Good luck
Hi Sous49,

I remember you earlier got reply from <nationalitysupportteamfmt@homeoffice.gov.uk> in May, where did you contact later for updates? could you share your experience?
Hi StAndrews
Have you contacted the emails i added.did you get an upsate about your application

Please update us
Hi Sous49,

Thanks for your message and apologies to members if I offended them asking where they contacted for an update ...

I sent multiple emails but not a single reply from anyone, I was only replied once in May that decision being made and I should get it shortly.

I applied in mid January, so I assume they will update me close to the 6 months timeline. Being furloughed from March, just an extra anxiety when people get reply and even decision letters, while having clean immigration history of no overstay or criminal record and high tax payer.

I hope we all get it soon.
Hi there

So many congratulations .told you you will be ok

Happy for you

Hey,

Many thanks and I hope you're doing well. Honestly some relief after several months :) it was a tough journey of 11 years finally coming to an end :)

Hoping that ceremonies will be resumed in 1-2 weeks and we able to complete the process.

Why can't you simply search the users posts and recent update in their own topic instead of asking for information to constantly be repeated again and again in topics that are NOT relevant to these questions!!

Hello BoyTed
Thank you for your information.So HO doesn't follow its own guidance &can grant or refuse nationality to anyone they want .Rules don't make sense.Good for those who get granted but a nightmare for those who get refused on overstaying &working illegally or those who don't apply in fear of losing money due to confusing rules.Some cases like yours have a little hope for Overstayers if they want to take risk.Goodluck in future.

Hi Everyone.
I received my Naturalisation decision in the Spam folder of my email. Its worth checking your spam folder if you are waiting for a decision until Home Office starts sending decisions by post.
I want to Thank everyone here specially moderators Secret.Simon, CR001 and others who put there valuable time helping answer application and immigration questions.
Thank you.
