Eligibility criteria: Spouse of BC & ILR
Method of application: Self
Date of application: 16.10.2013
Date of receipt by UKBA: 17.10.2013
Date of acknowledgement :15.11.2013 (Dated 12.11.2013)
Date of debit of fees:14.11.2013
Date of approval:26/11/2013
Documents received on: 29/11/2013
Date of Ceremony:25/01/2014

Case Progress: Called local council this morning (29/11/13) to enquire about booking citizenship ceremony. Informed by lady she has received my wife's Certificate but cannot book ceremony until my wife receives her Home Office letter.
Looking at my timeline, it appears Home Office is processing applications fairly quickly. Will keep forum updated when my wife receives her approval letter. The only downside now is that she needs to wait until January for Ceremony.

Congratulations! But for the moment, only one application has been processed since 23 October. Everyone who sent the documents after this date is still waiting for acknowledgment and fees.

Are there people who are still waiting for debit of fees for application received on 23rd October by UKBA ? My application has been received by UKBA on 23/10/2013 but absolutely no news about anything at all . Should I write to UKBA with my Royal mail tracking number for the reason of this delay ? thanks

Hi Sarvosuper. Check the thread oct timeline. There are few 23oct applicants who had their fee debited today so it won't be long for you. May be tomorrow or if HO work on Sunday a day after. I am too waiting mine was delivered on 25th. Good luck and keep us posted.
