After not hearing anything for over 7 months passed `i emailed to the complaint department and MP on 11/06/16 to follow up on my application .
Tow seperate answers received tody.
Today I received an email form complaint told me that checks still not cmplteted yet BUT I also received a seperate letter Dated 24/06/16 from ukvi stating that 'naturalisation application remains under ACTIVE CONSIDERATION' and they will let me know soon the decision is made.
not sure under active consideration means all checks completed and they are considering to make a decision or its still waiting for checks to be complted? anyone else still waiting still november or received similar answer ?
