Your other posts say September as date if entry?
Apologies, a mistype from me. Yes that's correct, 14th September was date of entry.

Sorry to post another message - do you think it's safe for us to apply today? Or should I apply tomorrow. Can't seem to work out which is 28 days...

Thank you - our appointment is tomorrow morning. Around £3300 seems a little steep but oh well.

I have uploaded everything to the website. Do we need to take the originals and a photocopy to the appointment (as per FLR M application)? Or do we just take the originals? Or do we take nothing other than the passports?

Final question - do we photocopy every page of the passports?

Many thanks for all your help. Success!! Arrived 48 hours after application.

We now want to apply for naturalisation which we have been told we can do immediately.

My wife is away for 3 months now so we will exceed the residency requirements. Could we still apply in December even though she will have been away for >90 days in the last 12 months and >270 days in the last 3 years? The residency requirements are 'should' whereas I have noticed that the rest says 'must'.

Many thanks for all your help.

Kindly ask your British citizenship questions in the British citizenship sub forum as these queries are not relevant to the ilr sub forum.

Sorry just thought of a second question too:

Can I apply on her behalf? Or do we need an official agent/ rep? How much do these usually cost and what is the process?
