Urgent travel after citizenship ceremony

Post by vin1983 » Sun Apr 02, 2017 7:40 pm

Hi - want to know what are the options available if I have to travel urgently after attending the citizenship ceremony but still not having got the british passport?

As I understand within 5 days of ceremony I have to return the BRP card.

Can I travel with the old Indian passport and citizenship certificate?

Thanks

No you can not travel with your citizenship certificate you will need to wait for your passport

An airline is unlikely to allow you to board with only your foreign passport/BC certificate and without a valid visa.
