Good Character for Naturalisation Previous immigration history

Post by khaledadda » Fri Jan 04, 2019 10:29 am

Dear all

I first come to uk on 6 months visitor visa in 0ctober 2003, overstayed my visa for few years, got married and left the UK voluntarily November 2010, applied for spouse visa and was granted after appeal to upper tribunal on July 2012, ILR was granted same day service June 2014.

Can anyone advise if the 10 years ban start from the day I left the UK or from the day I was granted the spouse visa?

Many thanks

There should not be any overstaying within the last 10 years from the date of your application.

It does not start from anywhere. It is 10 years counting backwards from the date of your application :!:
Also this is just a guideline. British citizenship by naturalisation is purely discretionary and not an entitlement
