Fighting a decline

Good news. Daughter received a phone call today from the HO. They admitted the error was on their side and will be reviewing her application!

Re: Unsuccessful applications

After my daughter having her application refused, we were able to prove that the error was on the HO side (they missed some additional paperwork we sent in - thankfully we had proof it was signed for) and today we were notified that her application refusal will be reviewed. So, here we go again! :D

Re: Time scale for appealing a decline?

Can you please keep all questions regarding this issue in one topic!! Yup, sorry, will do! You cannot 'appeal' a refused citizenship application, it is not an immigration application. There is only the option of reconsideration with the fee that must be paid and the prescribed form completed. Yep, ...

Time scale for appealing a decline?

My daughter's application was refused due to them claiming they didn't receive requested paperwork in time. They did and we can easily prove it, so that isn't a problem, but we've now received a letter acknowledging the appeal but saying they can't give any idea of time scale for the process. I was ...

Re: BC - EU national with a 6 month gap in proof of residence

My daughter is in EXACTLY the same position. She's lived in the UK for 18 years but we've only just applied for citizenship. Because we let her last passport expire we received a request for extra proof of residence. In that time period she had a few part time jobs but was unemployed for a large par...

Re: Application refused - please help

I am so angry I don't have words. Additional documents requested and sent in April. Refusal letter received in June due to them "not receiving" the requested documents, despite the fact that we have solid proof of delivery and them being signed for well within the time limit. Letter to acknowledge t...

Re: Application refused - please help

Where did you send the documents exactly?? For whose attention did you mark it, ie the caseworker specifically and did you include your case reference number etc? It might not have reached the caseworker dealing with your case. The documents were sent to the address given on the request letter. We ...

Even if I have the proof that someone there signed for and accepted the documents I sent? How on earth is that fair? They are in the wrong, not us. We did everything they asked us to. :cry:

Re: Anyone had to send extra documents? Did it delay the process massively?

I think our postman is getting sick of being rugby-tackled every morning!

This wait is killing me. I honestly thought her application would be the most straight-forward ever: lived in the UK and had leave to remain for 18 years, mother a British citizen . . .

We're in the process of applying for citizenship for my 20 year old daughter. She's South African but has lived in the UK since she was two. Her South African passport expired in 2016 but, because we had no plans to travel and knew we'd be doing the citizenship application, we didn't renew it. When ...
