Does life in the UK test expire?

Hi My wife is going to apply for the ILR next month. She has passed the life in the UK test, but in 2 years ago even before she got the dependent VISA. The reason why she took the exam too early is that I thought she can apply as my dependent 2 years ago when I apply for my own ILR. She wasn't able ...

Sorry. Spell Mistake. I mean Certificate of Naturalisation.

It is the certificate people receive after they attend the Citizenship ceremony. It is a certificate of naturalisation as a British Citizen. It is required when applying for a British passport for naturalized British Citizen.

Do I need to submit change of circumstance form?

Hi,

I am a Tier 1 Visa holder. I recently moved home. Can anyone let me know if I need to submit the "Change of Circumstance" form to UKBA to let them know my new address?

I understand I need to report police station about the move. Do I need to acknowledge UKBA as well?

Many thanks.

Is today a public holiday (3rd April)? They normally update the waiting time in the evening of Friday. Why did they updated it earlier? Does it mean they are not processing any applications today?
