If its already been more than a week since they received your application and have not taken the money out, that clearly shows that there must be mountains of applications before yours, give them another week and than call.

The lady told me today that they have currently doubled the normal processing time. I am not going to call them for at least 2 weeks now.

I was only kidding :D although it is true that I’d like to see money leaving my account and whatever happens after that – not a problem

dx1129 , I could not wait as one of my friend who applied in feb called them today and they said his application has been allocated to case worker : That gave me motivation to call them again lol ;) but same answer. So i thought to myself not to bother them again at least just before the easter holidays. my account was debited on 21st March I think. and posted on 14th same as you.

The form AN asks for same ID as the Life-in-UK test.. and I used a driving license for my Life-in-UK test.

However, when I applied through NCS, the person said the driving license was not required as I was sending my passport as a photo-ID.

I asked the NCS person to include my driving license anyway - just to be safe - and she did.

The way I think about it - why take a chance when you are spending so much time and money on this. So I put it in anyways - especially when the form asks for it.

the HO really confuse people with the way they put there words....
Evidence of identity
• *Your passport OR
• *National identity card OR
• *Home Office travel document OR
• *Home Office entitlement card OR
• *Home Office ARC letter OR
• Your birth certificate OR
• *Your photo driving licence OR
• Bank, building society or credit card statement issued to you in the last 6 months

and then its says

* if you used one of these documents when you took the Knowledge of Life in the UK test you will be expected to use it again by enclosing it with your naturalisation application..

i thought this is just for evidence of identity,if thats case passport alone should do,anyway the reason why im askin is becos my driving license still have my old adress on it.i dont mind sending it with my passport but im wondering if that wuld be a problem..Thanks

Its been quite a while since anyone here on this forum has had an approval. Most of us who applied in Fab-March have not heard anything back. There is definitely something unusual going on ! And the holiday season starting from next week is bound to add to all this delay. I am just hoping I get the approval and invitation letter by the first week of May, otherwise there are no ceremonies in my area until June. I had planned to get my passport and then OCI by July-August this year, but dont think its going to be possible now.

Anyways cant do anything but wait.

Regarding time line, all steps have ' doubled in time'.
Hence money will be in taken now in ' 2 wks ' instead of previously in ' 1 wk ' , perhaps for all applicants after last week of March, expect a letter then 15-18 days of your application being recd.
I applied on 6/04/11 and the application was recd next day. i am expecting a letter now after 20/04 and perhaps resolution in 3-4 months time.
best wishes
