British Citizenship Application

Post by bneil » Fri Nov 16, 2012 5:36 pm

Eligibility criteria: Indefinite (WP) + 1 year - Joint
Method of application: NCS (Harrow)
Date of application: 15 October 2012
Date of receipt by UKBA: 16 October 2012
Date of debit of fees: 28 October 2012
Date of receipt of acknowledgement: 29 October 2012
Date of receipt of approval: 15 November 2012 (Dated 12 November)
Date of Ceremony: 22 November 2012

P.S: I have CU 80 plus 3 pts in Oct 2010, and CU30 in Aug 2012.

I plead guilty by post, and was fined by the court 3 points + £210 all incl. However went ahead and submit the application, and it was successful. I mentioned all in the application form and ticked the box for traffic offences. My personal experience is to be honest in the application form and do not hide anything, and leave it to them to decide and hope for the best. :lol:
