Or type in search field naturalisation and scroll down until you see October, it keeps changing position depending on the popularity of the thread!

Hope this helps.....

Finally received our approval after 7 weeks. Thanks to everybody on this forum. It has been very helpful.

Also, called HO twice before receiving approval. Once on 18/10/13 and once on 21/10/13. Both times call was answered by very polite person who asked lots of questions and put on hold for a while (giving impression they were really checking). Both times they said application was still under process, please wait. However, now we know that the decision had already been made on both dates. So I think either their systems are not up to date or they just pretend to check but just give same 'under process' response to everyone.

So going by the date of payment debited, the latest approval we have on the forum is booboo1



Payment debited: 04/10/13
Date of approval: 22/10

It seems that in most cases, once the payment is taken, it is taking between 17 - 25 days for approval.

Or type in search field naturalisation and scroll down until you see October, it keeps changing position depending on the popularity of the thread!

Hope this helps.....
Thank you very much, you are so kind :D

The same with me, I received a letter from HO to send more paperwork, WRS which I lost unfortunately.
When I called they tell me the same thing, in progress.
Nationality Checking Service the lady which take my application wasn't sure about the answers for my questions, even she wasn't sure if I my documents were ok!
What a poor help!,,

I called them 21st and 24th October, they told me it is still in process. But I got my approval letter 26th and my was approved on the 16th. That means those HO just give random answers or follow script.

Dear All, I am pleased to write that I finally received the approval letter today. Thanks to all the forum members for their useful input.

Just a sincere advice to everyone who are waiting, if you would like to find out the status of your application then the best option is to email home office NationalityProgress@homeoffice.gsi.gov.uk rather than calling the 0870 number. The reason is that the reply via email is received from Sheffield where your application is processed and they are in better position in giving you the status. Whereas 0870 number is for the Croydon office where you may not get status update as experienced by many.

Got my approval today and called the council to book the ceremony.

I'm not sure why did it take 11 days for the approval letter to arrive.

Good luck to all who are still waiting.
