Proof of 5 years residence for naturalisation

Post by ILR1980 » Wed Aug 05, 2020 3:49 am

Hello everyone,

I have just booked an appointment for naturalisation and checklist document asking proof of living in the UK for 5 years (Non-European got ILR based on 10 years long residence ). Do I need to include only two recent non-British passports covering the last 6 years? and do I also need to upload the entry and exit stamps in these passports or just main page of passports with photo and all details on it? I am asking because I have got total 4 passports as arrived in the UK in 2004 and got ILR in 2016..

Thanks in adavance for help

Citizenship is based on the last 5 years. So yes, passports for last 5 years.
And do I also need to upload the entry and exit stamps in these passports or just main page of passports with photo and all details on it?

Yes.

Ok thanks. Strange that they ask us to put name and date of birth on the back of photos when they cannot see it in copy of referee declaration uploaded which show only front side of the photo as they asked us to glue the photo

It is from when paper applications were made so that if a photo becomes detached, it can be matched up with the form. Ukvi could, even now, still ask for the originals.
