Mohammad thanks for your message.

By the way, my wife now wants to call the council to book her ceremony as I know for a fact that she does not need to wait for the ceremony invitation letter but how about our 5 year old child?
The HO letter states "Your children 's applications have also been successful. They are not required to make an oath and pledge but will be invited to attend the ceremony and be presented with their certificates"
so will the HO post her Registration Certificate? or will our child be given that on the ceremony day? also does my wife need to book our child's ceremony too? We are a bit confused so please can you gurus help us? Thanks.

To Brokadisiac
It is £874 and that amount includes the ceremony fees also. Hopefully the HO will refund you the rest of the money that you overpaid.

Eligibility: Form UKM (Citizenship through heritage; Mother is UK citizen)
Method of application: Reading NCS
Date of Application: 8/10/13
Date of receipt of acknowledgement: 18/10/13
Date of debit: 17/10/13
Date of receipt of approval: Waiting
Date of ceremony: TBD


A couple of questions for the group:

1. I received my acknowledgement of application via e-mail. It appears everyone seems to get this via Royal Mail. I live in Germany, so I'm assuming that might be why. However, do you think I should expect Royal Mail to Germany for receipt of approval or another e-mail?

2. I've seen people refer to a case # for their application. When I received my e-mail there was no id # of any sort, so I have nothing to refer to if I need to check back with UKBA. Do most have this?

Thanks!

You'll note from my previous post that I applied two weeks before you and had my money debited a month before you, and I have no decision. The reality is that while there are trends that you can watch, there is nothing to do but hurry up and wait. Good luck.

P2Kin and Jambo you are amzing in plotting the timelines for October applications. Very genuine set of members that are a great help in keeping the stress down and holding each others hands during the tough waiting journey.

Wish every member a success ..

I have almost identical time line with you and have not received an approval yet either. From my observation the majority of October applicants, especially those who applied on the 21st and 22nd of October, who have received approvals, are those who are either married to a BC or are EEA nationals. Probably if my guess is correct, you do not fall into either of these categories?

Hi statisticians we have on board, who are all legends, kindly give us an analysis of applicants who applied for naturalization under the various categories , e.g those who are married to BC, EEC nationals, HSMP/Tier 1, Long residence, etc and how many in these categories have had fees deducted and approvals received. It will be helpful information. :-)
