Hi all,

The previous post was about someone else's approval. Her name is Liane and she posted the timeline in another forum here.

I have now received mine today! Approval for myself and two children born abroad. I applied on the 2nd of September through NCS Sutton. I will post the timeline in a minute

technically you are British only after the Ceremony?? Well yes! On the letter is written like this: I am please to say the application is been successful, and you will shortly receive a letter inviting you to the citizenship ceremony. When you attend to the ceremony you will be presented with a certificate of British Citizenship. Please note, This is not and invitation to a ceremony, You Should not contact your local authority until you have received your invitation from them.

This month's trend is EAA, dependant and spouse applications receive quick approvals whilst tier based applicants had none as of the moment.

It has always been vice versa until September, will never understand HO system..
