Re: Naturalisation by Marriage to BC or Permanent Residence

Your PR document is required as proof that you are "free from immigration restrictions" - in all cases.
Your marriage document is required if you wish to rely on that - and needs only evidence of three years residence.
These applications are common and UKVI will know what they are processing.

Re: Naturalisation by Marriage to BC or Permanent Residence

Just to clarify - being married to BC in itself isn't enough, you need (in your case) PR which you already hold (presumably with a card/document). If you are married to BC you could have applied for BC straight away after you obtained PR document, if you comply with all the requirements.

Re: Married Status - Separated - will they refuse my application?

As pointed out already you will not be judged on your marital arrangements. Regarding Brexit implications you may wish to look at this web page of the Bundesverwaltungsamt - the German government department in charge of nationality: https://www.bva.bund.de/DE/Services/Buerger/Ausweis-Dokumente-Recht...

Re: Second naturalisation application

It says clearly, PR can be any five year period. For periods to be documented for AN you work backwards from the AN application date which in many cases does not coincide with the period relevant for PR. This is discussed regularly here - I don't think Citizens Advice can provide any further clarifi...

Re: Second naturalisation application

I think I got most of the facts correct but I would like to confirm those with people of greater knowledge. I received my Permanent Residency card dated 6th April 2010 In the past I've applied for the Citizenship in 2014 based on 2008-2014 and got rejected because of the 2009-2011 WRS extension deb...

Re: Referee

So any accountant will do and there are no requirements? A professional accountant is normally a member of one of the recognised accountancy bodies, such as CIMA, ACCA or ICA, the term "chartered accountant" is generally used. Not every accountant is a member. Accountancy students don't qualify as ...

Re: BC: How to prove presence in the UK on day application received by HO (EU citizens)

The requirement is to have been present in the UK on the date 5 years back from the application - you would prove that date as part of submitting evidence of residency (P60 or employer letters).

Re: Citizenship decision pending - Can I travel?

Is there a rule that prohibits an applicant (currently on ILR) from travelling abroad while a decision on citizenship is pending. Note that we will have our passports with us as we have decided to use our council's services for verifying the documents and then send copies with the application. dupl...

Re: Citizenship decision pending - Can I travel?

Council's don't do the verification anymore - you have to use online and make an appointment at UKVCAS. You now always keep your originals. You can travel whilst your application is pending - naturalisation is not an immigration application. Bear in mind that UKVI could ask for further information/d...

Re: advice with 5 year qualification period

No need to upload the document here.
The HMRC letter and a covering explanatory note is probably sufficient

Re: advice with 5 year qualification period

Note that economic activity is not a requirement for naturalisation. Provide as much detail and documents as you can (P60 or employer letter(s)) and explain any gaps. UKVI will connect to HMRC anyway so together with what you provide and they get from HMRC they'll have your complete history. Where n...

Re: How to pass 'Life in the UK, A guide for new residents' official book, 3rd edition published at 28 Jan 2013? :)

I think the publishers of the book also offer an app (small fee) for question practice - check the publisher's website. Basically, to pass, lots of practice - get someone to help/test you - family or friends - you only need 18 correct answers out of 24 questions. One good approach is to write down y...

Re: can i travel while waiting for travel while waiting for British Naturalization application decision

Clearly applicants wishing to travel need to bear in mind that UKVI could make contact during their processing for further information and/or documents. General advice is to have someone trusted monitor your mail If you miss the ceremony I believe you have to apply/pay again.
