Good afternoon,

Just to help people out....I have finally received notice that my ILR(DV) visa has been granted. I used an Immigration solicitor in my submittal, had fairly good evidence, own a business employing 14 people full time, North American, parent to a British minor, etc. and still it took approximately 3 months and 3 weeks to get approval.

After the first two weeks of waiting, there was a request to deal with the biometrics. After that there was no communication at all until last week when there was some more information regarding the abuse organizations that I had been in contact with.

Very grateful that I used an immigration solicitor to help with all of this. Have had to deal with the Home Office many times over the last 7 years and without a good solicitor, you are a sitting duck.

Now, I have to think carefully about my next steps. Worrying about getting kicked out of the country has now been somewhat taken off the table.
hi,

congratulations!! I am happy for you. I am still waiting for the result as well and i do hope that it will be over soon.

thank you for making us updated with your application.

Do you know if you can apply for naturalisation after this or you have to wait until you can have you 5 years stay here in the UK?

I see, can you ask your solicitor if someone can apply after receiving ILR set DV if they haven't stayed for 5 years?

Thank you so much

Ilr via set DV immigration rules is completely separate and independent of British nationality laws. There is no special rule for ilr DV people when it comes to citizenship.

If you are divorced from your partner, you have to wait 5 years which must include 1 year on ilr.

If you are still married, it is 3 years before you can apply and you need your spouse's passport to apply.

Hi,

Thank you for your reply

If a person is still married to his/her partner but they are no longer together and they are separated because of Domestic Violence, can he/she be able to apply for naturalisation provided that they stayed in the UK for 3 years or more after being granted ILR (DV)?

Please advise.

Thank you in advance

Yes, the requirement is to be legally married. You can be separated no issue. However you will need your spouses passport and/or naturalisation certificate if applicable, to apply based on 3 years.

Thank you for your response,

Pardon my ignorance, Do they need a copy of the passport of their partners or the Home Office require the original passport of their partners?

Scanned copy.

It will also be more beneficial if you please continue asking your questions on citizenship in the British citizen sub forum as these questions are not relevant to this set DV topic or ilr sub forum and the thread is going completely off topic which is unfair to other posters!!

Hi, same here been waiting. My solicitor informed me that she has received a letter from Home Office asking for further documents with regards to MARAC as they did not find it being attached to the list of documents being submitted.

The letter was dated on 28th of August and they receive the document on 4th of September, since then no news

How about you?
When did you submit your application and the date of the letter you received from Home Office?
Did you track the mail?
