Firstly, not paying council tax or business rate is not a criminal conviction.
Having points on your licence (FPN) is ok for as long as it's not been issued in court.

You are advised to declare any FPN issued in the last 12months.

Pookna,

As long as it's not in your name or it's not a liquidation letter!

The fact that the company still exist means it's not been liquidated. Anyone who was the director of a liquidated company must declare it.

There is no such provision.

Discretion to disregard immigration time restrictions in the final 12 months is subject to 7.5

However, if you're the spouse or civil partner of a British citizen, then there is no requirement to wait 12 months after ILR under section 6(2).

It's actually spouse or civil partner of a British citizen, for a section 6(2) application, the spouse or civil partner must be British.

Hi guys,

I have applied for naturalisation on 28th of October 2013 and have received acknowledgment from HO on 9th of Jan 2014.

I called the HO yesterday to check the status of my application and was told it was still under process.

I had my schengen visa rejected by Switzerland couple of years back, I never appealed it as other things came up.

Then I applied for a visa for Italy last year and it got rejected automatically due to the fact that Switzerland had rejected me the year before. I didn't realise at the time of the first rejection that this would be the case, otherwise would have definitely appealed it.

Now my question to experienced members is that, do you think this affects badly towards my naturalisation application ?

I have had a number a of successful schengen visas application before the rejection from Switzerland, mainly for Italy and France.

I do not have any CCJs, FPNs or even been stopped by the police ever.

I would really appreciate your experienced advise on this.

Thanks in advacne,

Omi

I beleieve schengen visa refusal or approval has nothing to do with application for naturalization and therefore it shouldn't be subject to consideration at all.
I am sometimes wrong.

I have recently applied for naturalisation and was rejected because I had not applied for Indefinite Leave to Remain. In my research I hadn't realised I had needed it as I thought I had met the settlement requirements; I had lived in the UK for almost 10 years. Since my application refusal I have had to go back to my home country because my LR was expired and apply for another Visa which was then deemed unsuccessful. I'm not sure why yet as I just found out today. I wish that I had found these boards before I had my applications as the guidance I used was not clear.

Normal route is ILR, then 12 months and then naturalisation.

Hi all,

My Wife has just been refused UK Citizenship - regarding the new requirement for the ESOL English qualification.

She applied on the basis that she already has a previous English qualification in place, which shows the required level of English and is also registered on the OFQUAL register. All seemed to fit criteria at the time of application, which we spent much time on to ensure that all was in place.

However, it turns out that my Wife's qualification is not an ESOL approved - the Home Office pointed this out via post and requested that the correct qualification papers be in place within circa 2 weeks.

We wrote back twice to explain the mistake and that we have already booked a recognised IELTS exam, the venue and date it was booked for and the fact that we have paid for this exam - basically, "sorry, we now understand that this qualification is not suitable for this application and we are trying to put this right ASAP - could we please request an extension".

The next letter we received was to tell her that her application was unsuccessful, they would refund £80 (ceremony fee) and if we want to appeal, that would cost an additional £80.

This has obviously caused a great deal of stress (financial and emotional), particularly as the IELTS qualification is the only aspect between her obtaining her UK naturalisation.

The issue is that the Home Office are not willing to give an extension, which seems very unfair - of course it is in their best interest to try and get another fresh application out of us and therefore a lot more money.

Does anyone know our chances of success if we were to appeal? On the basis that they ignored our request for a reasonable extension and detailed that the exam was booked and paid for?

Or anyone out there who has been in a similar situation and could share experience or provide informal advice?

Any help would be much appreciated!
