Naturalisation Form Questions

Post by mukesh_bhatt9 » Thu Jun 23, 2022 9:13 am

can someone please advise on below naturalisation form questions:

1. "Have you made any previous UK immigration applications in the UK or abroad?"
Do I need to include all my previous visa like Visit/Business travel before I migrated to UK in 2010 for work?

2. Name in which you made the previous application?

Do I need to put my name or its asking visa category name?

3. I've got 2 PCN both of which I paid within 14 days. One of them is parking ticket and other is taking right turn on a no right turn road. Do I need to disclose them? if yes, where and how?

4. I need to travel in last week of July. if I submit my application now, do we get Biometric appointment within next 30 days?

Please advise. thanks a lot. regards

2. Name in which you made the previous application? Full names used. Women change names from original to married names. Or you might have gone to court and changed your names.

Do I need to put my name or its asking visa category name?

3. I've got 2 PCN both of which I paid within 14 days. One of them is parking ticket and other is taking right turn on a no right turn road. Do I need to disclose them? if yes, where and how? If nay was issued by the police, then you need to declare. If it was just parking council officers, then no need.

4. I need to travel in last week of July. if I submit my application now, do we get Biometric appointment within next 30 days? Only the system would tell you that. You might want to pay for the paid for ones in that case.

Please advise. thanks a lot. regards

Thanks a lot. Very helpful. Other questions I have are:

1.On gov.uk website at one place, it says, “You must apply separately for your children.” Whereas on other page, it says “In your application, you can also include family members. Each person included in the application will be assessed against the statutory requirements in their own right.”

It’s confusing to me.

2. Since I’ll be applying for all 4 of us, me, spouse and 2 children age 13 and 15 altogether as we got our 10 yr ILR together as well last year.
I hope we can apply using the online link below ?
https://visas-immigration.service.gov.u ... 1656007155

Kindly help clarify. Thanks a lot again.

Using the online application (the link you have) at the end of adult 1 application add adult 2, for AN Naturalisation, then child 1 and child 2, for the children the system will adjust the application to MN1 Registration. It is correct that all applicants will be assessed individually against the requirements. Note that citizenship applications are not under immigration rules, they have their own basis in law and separate requirements.

Correct - naturalisation is for adults 18+, registration for under 18s.

thanks. But AN form should be used by someone else as below.

"Form AN
Application for naturalisation as a British citizen
To be used by people in the Channel Islands, Isle of Man and British
overseas territories, and by people who live elsewhere and want to apply
by post."

Since I'm applying online, Should I say yes or no to question below:

Are either of the parents of the child (as stated in this application) applying for naturalisation as a British citizen on an AN form?

This is for the paper application only - if you apply from within the UK you are expected to use online AN application.

Since I'm applying online, Should I say yes or no to question below: Yes - clearly this is the case ...

-can My referees be the refrees for my family members too? I'm using a company director - as referee on professional side and I'm answering this question. would this suffice?

Q. How does the referee know the applicant?

A. Knows personally as main applicant's son

For the adults yes - for children though it is stated: "One referee should be a professional who has engaged with the child in a professional capacity, such as a teacher, health visitor, social worker or minister of religion." If you are unable to find those referees (or they are unwilling) for children you can use your own ones and include a note that you had difficulties getting child professional referees. Caseworkers are aware that applicants sometimes have problems finding the appropriate referees for children.

Q. How does the referee know the applicant?

A. Knows personally as main applicant's son
Perhaps "Family friend" or "Father's colleague" - note that the applications may not all be processed by one caseworker so referring to another applicant may not be clear.
