Eligibility criteria: Spouse Visa+ILR (3yrs Physical Presence)

Method of application: NCS Islington

Date of application: 02/05/2013

Date of receipt by UKBA: 03/05/2013

Date of debit of fees: 09/05/2013

Date of acknowledgement : 15/05/2013 (Dated 09/05/2013)

Date of approval: 31/05/2013 (Dated 25/05/2013)

Date of Ceremony: 10/06/2013


I'd like to let members know that part of my Visiting Visa counted towards my 3 year residency as I got ILR in September 2012. It is physical presence that really matters (if you are a British Spouse) provided all other regulations are followed.

Thanks to everyone who has made positive contributions on this site.:D

Wish you all the very best!!!

UPDATE

Had my Ceremony at Islington Town Hall on Monday 10-06-2013,
it was beautiful. We were over 50 new citizens who attended.

Applied for my passport the same day as I had already filled and signed my form.

Please remember to update your post when you get your good news as others will benefit from it just the way you and I benefited from the posts of others before us.

Wish you all the very best.

Keep your heads up and be good citizens.

Council had the certificate and offered an instant private ceremony (£100) but I am going on holiday today so there was no point in rushing the ceremony.

All the best for everyone else waiting for a response

-----------------------------
Thought I might as well start this as my application should reach them tomorrow!

Eligibility criteria: Me: 2 Years Working Holiday + 5 years WP + 1.5 year ILR; Wife: 4 Years WP Dependent, ILR 1.5 years

Method of application: Direct (Not through NCS)
Date of application: 30/04/2013
Date of receipt by UKBA: 01/05/2013
Date of acknowledgement : 05/05/2013
Date of debit of fees: 05/05/2013
Date of approval: 14/06/2013 Dated 10/06/2013
Date of Ceremony: TBA

Update: 31-05-2013: Got a letter dated 29th May from UKBA. They need my expired passport showing showing residence for the May2008-Nov 2009. I thought since my ILR stamp was in new passport, that was all they needed. (big mistake on my part). Have already posted old passport in pre-addressed envelope they included. They also returned all our other documents + passports (so guess it's a good sign). Peeved off, that they sent letter + documents using 2ND class mail instead of the special delivery envelope I submitted with my application. Anyway, glad I got all my documents back.

Updated: 14-06-2013: We have been approved. Got the letter in the post today confirm such. :D We are ecstatic. Still annoyed they sent my passport and documents via 2ND CLASS mail and not in the Special delivery envelope originally submitted with application. Well £5 down the drain but I did get all my documents back. Thanks Royal Mail :D

We sent separate applications as our marriage certificate is misplaced.

As you can see even though two applications were sent at the same time (from same post office using SD), there was 2 days delay for second application processing.

The mathematician in the forum did a good job.

FOR ATTENTION OF EVERYBODY

All our moderators are superb,almost all of them has gotten their citizenship but they still stay around to be advising everyone in need of immigration help.
If possible a paypal account or bank account should be opened by the joint agreement of moderators for the running cost and maintenance of this website and everybody in Immigration board should be able to contribute cheerfully.
Besides,If anybody think a moderator or anyone on the forum has offered them important advice that would have cost them hundred of quids,such adviser must be rewarded.God bless you all
:D :D
