you should acquire PR if you continue working on 14.1.13 (5 years exercising treaty rights). After that, instead of waiting for a year you can apply IMMEDIATELY on 14.1.13 to become a British Citizen, you will need to provide evidence proving your that you acquired PR and provide your wife's British passport.pioca10 wrote:Hi All,
