According to the naturalisation application reference here, I really wondered that I have not still received my Ack. n Bio. letters from H.O. I have sent, emailed and faxed my request to HO on 22/6, 6/7 n 9/7 respectively. Unfortunately, no reply is received. As I have planned to leave UK with my family on 17.7.2015 and return Uk at the end of August. I certainly feel anxious and helpless at present. What can I do? ( After I have finished my NCS service, I got a receipt informing that "If u are planning to leave the UK at all in the two months following your application u need to be aware that u will be invited to enrol ur bio at some point in that period. ......n failure to do so in the requisite period could result in the rejection of ur application." :( ) I misunderstand that I do not need to enrol my Bio as I have enrolled it in 2014. I find this website after my submission for the naturalisation application :( :( :(

UPDATE!!

I received all of my documents today as well as an approval letter!! I wasn't expecting it at all.
I applied on the very first day of June. In fact, I sent my documents to the Home Office on the Friday or Saturday before the 01/06, so I could also be classified as an end of May applicant, I suppose.

The letter says that you need to wait for a separate invitation to attend a citizenship ceremony, and you should get it within 2 weeks in the post, so I'll update when I have more information.

Hi there,

Congrats! Very great news for the rest of us.

Would you be willing to add your dates to the Google Docs sheet, so that the forecast averages can reflect this.



Would be useful if everyone else could add their dates as well.

Cheers,

What they meant was that all applications which were decided after 30 June are considered pending, in line with published statistics. So, consider this scenario:

Submitted on 1 May
Decided on 1 August

In this case, they will say the application is pending, because they can only report the status of cases which were decided before 30 June.

Congratulations to all the June applicants who got their results.

Just make me wonder though. How come March and April applicants are still waiting and June applicants have started getting results. Anyone know how the cases are dealt by Home-office?

Nobody knows how the cases are dealt with.
i think it just depends on your caseworker, and their mood on day to day as to how efficient they wish to be!
