Re: EU & Brexit Deal

what has got to do with ILR? ILR UK Law - PR EU Law (I think you meant the new settled status) Do you have a PR, and if yes why don't you apply for a citizenship! if you don't do that now then you will be applying for the new settled status from march 2019, but free of charge as you already have a P...

Re: Ceremony

Correct, however I treat the £80 as a "certificate fee" rather than ceremony then public ceremony is "free" whereas the private one is an extra hundred/few hundred quid. The £80 is the ceremony fee as clearly stated in HO's fee list and NOT a 'certificate' fee. Correct!! Why would that be for a cer...

Re: Ceremony

1. The decision letter comes by 2nd class post (brown A5 envelope). Mine came 9 working days after the online status changed to decided. 2. Usually by the time you get your decision letter, the council already has got your papers. 3. On my decision letter (received 24-Nov) it just says to contact t...

Re: General Discussion During Naturalisation Application Process

CR001,

Just to double check about my PR card, it has to stay with me after the ceremony as i didn't have ILR status (BRP) so therefor it won't be sent to HO!
Also once the ceremony is done, how long does it take for the passport to arrive? btw i have used JCAP

Thanks

I had similar experience. Home Office have sent my certificates and expected me to book the ceremony in the council I used for NCS/JCAP application and not the council of my residence. I had to wait pretty much full 2 weeks to receive decision letters (it's a combined decision + "contact the counci...

Hi All, the status of my application changed to ‘Decided’ on 16.11.17 and I’m still waiting for the letter from HO. In the meantime checked with the Council if they have received my details, but they haven’t yet! I’m aware that we have to wait 10 working days but I assumed that council will receive...

I don't think it's reliable. I got my approval letter yesterday (dated 7 Nov) and the website still says awaiting decision. I can't book my appointment yet as the HO letter hasn't reached the council yet Call your Local council again and ask them to get in touch with the HO, also make sure you give...

It's an observation of the country of origin of the applications that are being processed quickly (not the older ones which are all being processed slowly). I might be wrong but it's just what it looks like to me. It's not an attack on anyone, so don't take it as one well your observation is wrong,...

I don't think so, I am not the only Kiwi waiting and I have seen SA people waiting as well. NZ has 5 million people so isn't exactly large.
