Re: CTA - requirement for the British Citizenship

What wife is proving is not her work record, it's her residency period (5 years), which is a requirement of naturalisation (which does not come under UK immigration regulations, but the British Nationality act with different requirements). If she has five years worth of P60s or council tax bills wit...

Re: [URGENT] Travelling to EU from the UK without passport

I'm sure you can apply for another passport from HMPO (I know regular business travellers who do have two, mainly due to visa issues) - however, that can take anywhere from 10 days to 4 weeks (or even 10 weeks per HMPO website). Unlikely that will help with the urgency.

Re: [URGENT] Travelling to EU from the UK without passport

British passport? I don't think there is any solution from inside the UK. If you are outside the UK you may be issued with a British temporary travel document if you satisfy the conditions, such as being a British citizen. https://www.gov.uk/emergency-travel-document Never heard of something similar...

Re: Referee requirement and few other questions

1. Children also need referees. For children the professional referee has to be someone who is involved with the child (not GPs though) - it is often difficult to find prospective referees who are willing to share their details with you. In that case you could perhaps use your own referee(s) if they...

Re: Tricks for booking an urgent passport appointment

You will receive a registration certificate (adults are naturalised).
I don't know any tricks but for first child passport (only) there is an urgent passport application available.

Re: Is this a Permanent Residence Card?

Effectively it's a Permanent Residence card though they used to be issued under EEA regulations. You can say yes and then select the ILR Settled Status option, as far as I know.

Re: Citizenship Application Referrals

1. A "religious minister" is normally an acceptable referee, as long as he knows the children and involved with them, which appears to be the case.
2. He can be referee for both children, again, if he know both.

Re: Which country is visa free by BRP CARD

I understand that you should apply for a Schengen visa to the country where you will spend most of your time - so arriving in Italy and moving on to France should be ok. But please review the EU guidance on this: https://ec.europa.eu/home-affairs/what-we-do/policies/borders-and-visas/visa-policy/sch...

Re: Registration or naturalisation of my son

You are free to apply separately or as a family. The cost is the same for each applicant and everyone is assessed individually so the decisions may come in on different dates. There is no better or worse as far as I know.

Correct - note that when you add a child to your application the system will adjust automatically to form MN1 for the child.

Re: Registration or naturalisation of my son

Correct form will adapt to MN.
Note - Adults mainly get naturalised (some adults may have a claim to register, but not in your case) - children only get registered, you cannot select naturalisation for them.

Re: Which country is visa free by BRP CARD

A UK issued BRP card does not give visa free travel privileges (not a travel document) - it is a UK only document. Spouse will need to apply for a visa, for example to enter the EU Schengen area.

Re: Registration or naturalisation of my son

At the end of your own AN form you can specify to include another family member - for your child select "under 18" option and the system will adapt to form MN1. You don't have to apply separately.

Re: Naturalisation Application Query-2021

Please don't quote addresses - mods will delete!

Your letter should be ok - UKVI are aware that applicants are having issues with referees not willing to provide their details. GPs I believe have been removed from accepted professions anyway (for adults anyway).

Do 1) and 2).
Your approval email should contain a reference number - they can find you with that. Plus scan of BRP - don't think the card is an issue.
