Welcome to immigrationboards.com!
thank you thats helpful, she has already applied for PR with EEA4 and got it, so from your explanation she wouldnt need to prove those 6 years applying for BC, only the one year since she's been PR.johnsienk wrote:Hi
You wrote "PR" rather than" indefinite leave to remain", so I assume she is married to an EEA national and obtained her PR via the EEA route.
This is how I understand it:
She obtained her PR status automatically on the fifth anniversary of marriage (provided her spouse was exercising his treaty right here for these five years).
Therefore she can apply for naturalisation 1 year after the 5 year marriage anniversary (assuming they were married here) and NOT from the date the PR was issued. This means she may already be able to naturalise, depending on the dates involved.
>> would that need to be for both partners or just for the one applying
For naturalisation, just the one applying, unless they want to naturalise jointly.
