I just apply my BC on this Tue.

I am a non-EEA and my husband is dutch
Arrive UK 01/2005
Apply PR 01/2010
receive PR on 07/2010

I didn't have the PR for one year but 05/01/2011 is the 6th year I'm in UK, so I just go ahead and apply the BC.

Everything is fine, the woman in NCS even phone up Home Office to double check. They just need my husband passport, P60 for the last 6 years and our marriage certificate, my passport and this is all they need. So I think you can apply BC on March 2011.

I don't think so.

If you obtained permanent residence and have a proof of that as either a stamp in your passport or a sticker in a PR card, they you have already proved the 5 year qualifying period for the PR.

Therefore, with PR, you are no longer depended on your spouse for immigration purposes--you have a right of permanent residence. You therefore apply for naturalisation in your own right.

If you have not previously applied for permanent residence, then that's a different story, because you would have to prove your husband was exercising his treaty rights also for the "5-year-PR-qualifying-period".

Who gave you that advice, was it the NCS folk?
i think johnsienk is correct, my friend is also confused about this, she gained PR but she is wondering if she needs to prove the full 5 years of her marriage (and all documents P60 etc )with the HO, becuase she has already applied for EEA4 where she needed to give all this to the HO anyways...

so johnsienk , does that mean she only needs to prove the 1 year pr? the 5 years prior to that were already proven by applying for PR in the first place.

I have applied for BC last week
I entered the UK in May 2001
In May 2002 I received 5 year residency card / dependant on the EEA National excising his treaty rights
In Dec 2007 I obtained PR

With my application I sent my passport showing my PR sticker and I provided P60's since 2005 till 2010 - which is the 6 years!

Do you think this is correct?
Also slightly worried as I forgot to staple my photo - I just paperclipped it!! whoops!!!

I am in same situation and willing to apply after 6 years. By that time my PR will be only "5 month old". I am afraid that my documents would not be accepted by this reason. What document can I quote to prove I am elegible to do it?

Just let you know I already received the letter of approval, now just wait for the invitation letter to the ceremony. My application had approved less than a month.

My PR was just 6 months old when I applied it, and the lady in NCS just need me and my husband passport, my husband 6 years P60 and our marriage certificate. These are all they need.

The NCS people phone up to Home Office and asked what they want from me, and that is 6x P60 from my husband, our marriage certificate and our passport. But maybe I am different as I'm a BNO (Hong Kong) holder so I am only register as a British Citizen. Not naturalization.
