Naturalization (New System)

Post by simonchalford » Thu Dec 06, 2018 4:15 pm

Hi there,
I was wondering if anyone had any idea how long the new Naturalization format would take. I fulfill all the requirements( ILR for 2 years, Lived in total in the UK for 7, not been outside of the country more than 450 days in 5 years) and was told the new system may be quicker, but can't find any information online beyond the standard 6 month timeframe. Any help?

Unlikely to be any change to processing times of a few weeks to a few months due to the extensive checks HO do for citizenship applications. It is only the submission that has changed and as the system is new, no one at this stage will have any update on whether it is quicker or not.

Suggest keep an eye on the November and December TIMELINE ONLY topics.
