Hi all,

I am new to the forum and I'd like to share my experience also :D

Eligibility criteria: 5 year + ILR (first entry in 2007, received ILR in 2010)
Language criteria met: B1 test, Life in the UK test for ILR but the certificate got lost when moving house - covering letter provided.
Nationality: Thai
Method of application: NCS plus new passport service (extra £10)
Date of application: 15/10/2015
Payment method: debit card
Date of receipt by UKBA: 16/10/2015
Date of acknowledgement : 19/10/2015 (received 22/10/2015)
Date money gone off account: 19/10/2015
Date of letter requesting biometrics: 19/10/2015 (in the same envelope with the ack letter)
Biometrics done: 24/10/2015 (will make it happen tomorrow! :mrgreen: )
Date of approval : waiting
Date of ceremony : waiting
Date applied for passports : 19/10/2015 (not sure about this but the passport office has taken the money on 23/10/2015)
Date passports received : waiting

I have applied for British passport at the same time as my citizenship application. This is found on kent.gov.uk:

Passport application service
We are one of five pathfinder authorities offering customers a new service that allows you to apply for a passport at the same time as your citizenship application. Currently, once your citizenship application has been processed and you have attended a ceremony, you would then have to make a separate application for your passport which can take another 6 weeks. If you choose our new service you won't have to make a separate application and your passport will be sent to you after your citizenship ceremony.

Note from CR001 : I have edited your post to include this for the benefit of other members and to avoid non-timeline posts asking you questions.
