Hi, I applied British Naturalization sometime in 28.11.15 and received an acknowledgement on 23.12.15 and finally received letter from HO on 04.07.16 stating that 6 months waiting period have lapsed and to continue waiting for decision. I have called several times and I have not heard anything from HO. Can anyone give advice?
