Hi Senthil,
Cograts on your British Citizenship. I remember me trying to reassure you regarding you jumping a red light many months ago in a deferent post. I hope you did get a penalised for that?
Correct me if I am wrong. You applied for a refund of your ceremony fee but home office instead approved your application?
Thanks for your reply
TC
Thanks, I requested to reconsider my application and my application was reconsidered. Hence, the HO requested me to return the ceremony fee which was refunded to me earlier.

Hi,
During the period between getting the British Naturalisation certificate and receiving the British passport, can I still travel in and out of the UK using the foreign passport that has the ILR stamp on it?
I am a frequent overseas business traveller, wondering this is a problem, ie whether I have to stay domestic while waiting for my British passport

Any advice greatly appreciated, many thanks !!

I believe you can. I travelled between my ceremony and my british passport application. I actually flew out the day I had my ceremony and came back 5 days later. I had no problems clearing immigration on my ILR
