Citizenship question

Post by issi » Tue Mar 24, 2020 9:16 pm

Hi everyone,
I have applied for naturalisation on 21 January 2020 and did biometrics 23rd January, since then no updates.

My questions are;

Is HO still dealing with pending applications?

How will they contact me about the next update through email or post? If post is it going to be a normal post or sign required one?

Thanks

Please don't tag to someone else threads.
We don't know what the Home Office working arrangements are.
Once you have done biometrics the next communication is likely to be your decision letter which comes in an A5 brown second class envelope, no signature. UKVI don't keep you updated on progress of your application. Applications can take anywhere from one month to many months.

There is nothing stopping HO from processing applications. Naturalisation takes 4-6 months. Wait to hear back
