when to apply for ctizenship

Post by inzi2k » Fri Feb 08, 2013 12:15 am

Hi all,

Can anyone let me know when to apply for naturalization?

I came to UK on 20 Feb 2002

Completed 10 years in UK and applied for ILR on 20 Feb 2012

ILR received on 20 Aug 2012

ILR issue date 15 Aug 2012 and expiry date 20 Feb 2022

I understand that I need to complete 1 year before I apply for naturalization BUT I don' know that when will this 1 year gets complete!!

Would I apply for naturalization on 20 Feb 2013 or 20 Aug 2013 ?

Thanks

It's 3 and half months here too and there is no approval yet. Rang my council on Friday and they don't have anything for me from UKBA. I will be relocating to the Netherlands next week and I am not holding any hopes of receiving withing the next week. When I applied, the NCS person said that my application is quite straight forward and it is what they call as a good application. I look at the post everyday and it makes me :evil:
