Wage slips not needed, there is no income requirement for citizenship.

You must send proof of English requirement. It is a glitch in the system that it is not asked for.

Usually useful to state the route to PR and when this was attained.

You need UK NARIC UKVI red route, English and comparable assessment certs and degree cert must be sent.

I am not aware of NARIC UKVI Red route yet.

I have already got NARIC certificates and letter from uni to prove that my degree was taught in English. Since home office Document Check list didnt mentioned about NARIC documents, I just wanted to confirm with you guys.

yes I got this

Q3: I am not exempt. How do I go about fulfilling the requirement on the basis of a degree taught or researched in English?

You will need to apply for a document from NARIC.

Question is,
if home office did NOT ask me to provide them evidence of English language, should I still send them certificates to them? if yes, what documents I should include in my application,

Certificates from NARIC?
Letter from university to prove my last degree was taught in English?
My final degree?
My transcripts?

It is a mandatory requirement. Failure to send it could result in a refusal and loss of fee.

You need to send :

1. Original degree cert

2. NARIC English assessment cert

3. NARIC comparable assessment cert

NARIC that you need costs £150, same price as the 10 minute B1 English test.

There is a saying that goes something along the lines of the fence is as secure as its least secured part. You can put a massive lock that costs millions and is virtually unbreakable but have a hole in the fence...

Your lock: You covered your name in the image in black.
Your hole: Check the file names in your image.

Simply wait to hear back from HO. It can take a couple of months, it can also take 6 months or more.

I have not heard anything back from Home Office yet.

Simply wait to hear back from HO. It can take a couple of months, it can also take 6 months or more.
After three months of wait, I finally received letter saying " I am pleased to say that the application has been successful you will shortly receive a letter inviting you to attend a citizenship ceremony. when you attend a ceremony you will be presented with a certificate of British Citizenship."


My questions are,

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.

How long it takes to get everything sorted out? (time scale... I need to apply for BP)


what sort of ceremony they offer?

Is it council, that will issue me certificate of naturilisation?

Do I have to take any documents with me?

is it public ceremony? as I dont want anyone to take my pictures etc

How much council charge for this all stuff?

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.

Usually within a couple of weeks. If the date is set and it doesn't suit you, you can change it or pay for a private ceremony.
How long it takes to get everything sorted out? (time scale... I need to apply for BP)
Depends when your ceremony is and if a set date or not.
what sort of ceremony they offer?
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.
Is it council, that will issue me certificate of naturilisation?
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.
Do I have to take any documents with me?
Your passport and approval letter.
is it public ceremony? as I dont want anyone to take my pictures etc
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.
How much council charge for this all stuff?
There is no charge unless you opt for a private ceremony. There might be a charge if you want the photo print.
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.
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.

what sort of ceremony they offer? Group Ceremony with other applicanst or privat ceremony (£150 - 200 extra)

Is it council, that will issue me certificate of naturilisation? The certificate is issued by the Home Office and handed to you at the ceremony.

Do I have to take any documents with me? your approval and invitation letter - check whether they specify anything else

is it public ceremony? as I dont want anyone to take my pictures etc Ceremony is only open to applicants and their guests. Generally there is a photographer there to record the handing over of the ceremony. It's not a newspaper photographer - professional who does this for the council and sells you pictures if you wish.

How much council charge for this all stuff? You have already paid £80 for the group ceremony. If you want a private ceremony then pay extra as quoted above.
BRP card is to be returned after the ceremony
This is just my opinion as a member of this forum and does not constitute immigration advice.
Please do not send me private messages asking for advice - they will be ignored
