Was there something in the link to the forum rule above that was unclear regarding multiple topics???
You are confusing applying for a passport separately after ceremony to those who applied for passport at the same time as applying for citizenship. They are two different processes and timelines.ootum04 wrote: ↑Wed Dec 19, 2018 3:35 amDear value members,
I attended my naturalisation ceremony on 27/11/2018 and Then after on 29/11/2018, I sent my passport paper application via post check & send service which was received on 30/11/2018.
On 1/12/18, I received a text saying if more info needed, they will let me know until 22/12/18.
I have seen on the timelines that few peoples are receiving their passport within a week time using the same route.
I call HMPO many times thinking in case I messed up with my application or miss out on any letters etc. They confirmed that all is good but they been waiting for UKIV to confirm my ceremony attendance with them for my application to progress further.
Then after I wrote my council and they confirmed me via email that all details regarding every ceremony get forwarded the same day to UKVI. Just don’t understand if we send the original Certificate of naturalisation with application then it’s common sense that we have attended the ceremony. Just don’t understand why this has to go via via!!!
I phoned UKIV and they asked me to write email@example.com and explain all this... anyway did this and awaiting now!!!
Anyone out there been through the same scenario, pls advise what my options from here... my family is travelling abroad for Christmas & new year ... seems like I will be missing it now and stay alone
