Agree with Jambo – it won't make any difference. The Home Office is interested in whether you fulfil the requirements, including the UK residence requirements, for naturalisation, and the fact that you may have a resident permit for a third country (i.e. not your country of citizenship and not the ...

Answer was that they do supposedly process in date order but some take longer due to requesting more information, which we all know is totally untrue. I know my husband has been asked for nothing thus far. The HO means requesting more information from other governmental agencies and not the applica...

Re: Traveling during BC consideration

My question is can my trips (abroad) delay the process of my application? No. It is advisable to have some one checking your post in case the HO writes to you asking for more information (you normally are given 21 says to respond). Thank you very much Jambo! :) Are you one of the BC applicant (Jamb...

I didn't see this, but it happened to me. and this information was provided by UKBA in Leverpol when I called them. So, a month after I applied, if I go on a 5-day break out of the UK [counted as 3 days absence] I should notify UKBA? And, do they expect that business people who might travel abroad ...

Yes, you can travel with your previous passport after submitting application. but it is better to inform UKBA by sending a letter (recorded delivery) to them and mention your destination, time (how many days a way) and personel details.

[quote="Jambo"]I admit the requirement of having CSI is a bit confusing. Under UK rules, you are entitled to free NHS as you are a resident. However, under EEA regulations, in order to obtain a Permanent Residence status you are required to have CSI (if student of self sufficient). The GPs are not e...
