It is important to inform applicants of this new form because they may lose their fee for using the wrong form.

I am due to apply for naturalisation in four months and I have already completed the referee section (Page 12) using the old form since the referee lives abroad. I used the old Form AN 2010.
There is a small amendment on page 12. I intend to use page 12 as the old version and the rest of the form the new version.
Would this be acceptable or do I have to get the referee to complete the new revised form (December 2012)?
This refers to applications under the immigration rules (leave to remain/settlement) and not naturalisation (this is why form AN is not listed there). The 21 days rule doesn't apply to naturalisation application. There is no legal requirement to apply using the latest form (in fact, using the form is not mandatory).Mel2012 wrote:I am the same... I applied 19 Dec and UKBA recieved my application on 20 Dec. But I checked it with someone and they changed it last 22 December. But read this.. They will still accept the application until January 3 http://www.ukba.homeoffice.gov.uk/sitec ... tion-forms
