Aberdeen City Council did a great job getting up to speed with huge backlog. Due to Covid restrictions, the ceremony is attended by 10 applicants and no guests. But happy to complete the journey after living 13 years in UK (left for more than 2 years and hence residency clock was reset when came back)
