Members who have applied for citizenship in 2017 should continue to update in THIS topic and NOT in the 2018 Citizenship Application TIMELINES ONLY topic.

Emailed yesterday (10 Jan 2018), got a standard reply "Your application continues to be processed. While it is not possible to give an exact timeframe, this office will be in touch as soon as a decision has been reached."

So more than seven months after applying, still not at the second letter stage.

Please don't send me PMs asking for immigration advice on posts that are on the open forum. If I haven't responded there, it's because I don't have the answer. I'm a moderator, not a legal professional.
