If the date is set and it doesn't suit you, you can change it or pay for a private ceremony.what is normal time scale to receive a letter? will council give me a set date? I work full time, I have to see what days are suitable for me.
Depends when your ceremony is and if a set date or not.How long it takes to get everything sorted out? (time scale... I need to apply for BP)
Your fee you paid includes a group ceremony and availability for space depends on your council. If you opt for a private ceremony, you have to pay for it, usually in the region of between £150 and £200.what sort of ceremony they offer?
HO issues the certificate. The council only presents it to you when you have taken the oath and the council writes the date on it.Is it council, that will issue me certificate of naturilisation?
Your passport and approval letter.Do I have to take any documents with me?
You can choose not to have your picture taken, however it is nice to keep as it is taken with the ceremony official and a portrait of the Queen and taken while the certificate is presented to you.is it public ceremony? as I dont want anyone to take my pictures etc
There is no charge unless you opt for a private ceremony. There might be a charge if you want the photo print.How much council charge for this all stuff?
You need to send the card back within 5 days after your ceremony. You are only British once you attend the ceremony, until then you are only an ILR holder.They sent me back my ILR card.
Should I keep this card with me or I have to send this card back after ceremony etc? there is nothing mentioned about keeping my ILR card or should I send it back to Home office.
Do you know what address I have to send my ILR card?
Will I lose my current nationality after Affirmation/Oath?
If I am going to a dual national, how I will be able to use my current passport without ILR card?
Or I just have to apply and use British Passport all the times and my current passport will be merely a symbol of dual nationality?
