Naturalisation payment

Post by Jennifer93 » Fri Jan 11, 2019 12:09 am

I made an application on the 28th of December for British citizenship.
My solicitor posted it on the 31/12/18 next day delivery. However I check my online banking the money still isn’t debited by ukvi. Can someone tell me how long do they take the money out once received paper application.
Thanks

For what purpose would you use a solicitor when it's a very simple form to fill out.

Also why would you not fill it out online and pay online..

Mate why are you very negative and aggressive? All your posts have a hint of aggressiveness to it. If the Lady felt she needed to use a solicitor and send it by post then she is well within her rights to do so and its none of your business!

But they really should warn people that people applying online would take priority.
I just saw on the tracker someone who applied after me has already had their biometrics done!!! :cry:

When applying online and posting the applicarion, you get to download the biometrics letter as part of the process. No need to wait for ho to send a letter by post.

If applying online and using the new service, you enroll biometrics at one of the new service centres

Hi Jennifer,

I am kind of on the same boat as you. I have applied my application by NCS service. My documents also been posted on 31st December and received by Home Office on 2nd January 2019.
I've checked my online banking after reading your post but no sign of pending transaction by Home Office.

Keep me posted.

Regards
Philip

I think we need to relax a bit - sympathise it's a frustrating process. Even my payment 2.5 years ago was taken only after two weeks.
This is just my opinion as a member of this forum and does not constitute immigration advice.
Please do not send me private messages asking for advice - they will be ignored

Pls, could you inform me if your payment has been taken from your accounts?
I'm just asking because everyone here submitted after me by paper application
It's going to three weeks. I need to keep abreast of this.
This is the home office and I just hope that my documents have not gone missing. :( :(

It's been now more than 2 weeks. No sign of even pending payment.

Applicants who applied in October or November 2018 their fee been taken with in 10-12 days as per their timeline.

Please share your timeline if anyone has applied via ncs or postal and payment still not taken !!!

Another thread someone who submitted in November only got their fee taken out on January 14th. Imagine that. We should not be surprised if our fee is taken in March at this stage.

I've chased them up - they have confirmed they have received the application (but for some reason date is different from Royal Mail tracking), but cannot provide an estimate as to when fee will be taken / application formally acknowledged.

Application submitted in 13th December.

Payment was taken 10th January.

Bio enrolled 15th January.

I supposed it's about a month for the payment to be taken.

Dear all

I think they have lost my application. I received an email from UKVI and they told me it is not on the system.
I gave them the tracking number. My whole life is in that application, 3 passports, life in the UK, masters certificate, biometric card etc, drivers licence.
Pathetic.
