The reason I am asking this, is because I have an international trip on February 4th. If I attend the 13th January ceremony, it is most likely that I will not have my British Passport in time for my trip, and by then I will have to have destroyed my BRP ILR. So I was considering contacting the Local Authority (using their website tonight), and booking the ceremony only for the 10th of February. Would that be a problem?
If you book your ceremony over the phone with the council, you might not get a letter. Again this will vary from councils to councils. Just make sure you take note of the date you booked over the phone in case no letter is sent. And if in doubt, you can always call the council back to confirm your ceremony date.mpitillo wrote: ↑Thu Dec 12, 2019 10:45 pmThanks for the answers, xavieryves and aman90.
I will go ahead with the 10 February 2020 date then, as I am not in a super rush anyway.
Once booked the ceremony with the Local Authority, does the invitation letter always comes via mail, or does some places send it via e-mail instead? I just want to make sure to keep my eyes on the e-mail, if that's the case.
