Re: ILR Life in uk fail

Hello all. I am currently on a uk spouse visa 5 year route. However I am due to apply for ILR but can not seem to pass the life in the uk exam. I call immigration to find out my options and was told to talk to a lawyer (not in a rude way he genuinely didn't know). Hopefully someone here can help as...

Re: ILR to BC question

FYI: Even if there are two passport applications and two different HMPO addresses, both documents can be sent to ONE HMPO office also in case of a family. However, HMPO will transfer the documents to the correct HMPO office via internal mail which will slightly delay the application. So best practic...

Re: ILR to BC question

Also, in the application, when it asks about the spouse details (that is yourself), input British. The form by default assumes then the applicant is applying as per Section 6(2) plus the 3 year evidence. Also clarify your other nationality (Aus) in the cover letter or add in the form itself.

Re: ILR to BC question

Thanks again @Cullinan , thanks alterhase !

Re: Expired passport for BC naturalisation

Select the correct category while filling the AN application. It asks if you have a valid passport. Select NO. Then it will ask details of the expired passport. As long you have a valid ILR, there should be no issues. If your passport expired in 6/2020, add some proof of address e.g. bills and counc...

Re: ILR to BC question

No need to declare a PCN.

He should apply on the 13th Jan to avoid any doubts.

If he applies on the 13th Jan 2022, he should be physically in UK on the 14th Jan 2019.

Submit a copy of your passport, Naturalisation certificate and marriage certificate.

Re: Do I need Life in Uk test for ILR as a refugee?

As Vinny said, you do not need LIUK for ILR. However, you would need to pass English B1 SELT and LIUK both if you plan to apply for Nationality in the future.

Re: ILR to BC question

No need to mention tourist visas. Only mention the start of Tier2.

Look for free appointments. You will get one hopefully.

Not necessarily it takes 4-6 months. Some applications are accepted in less than a month also. It varies, it can take up to 6 months standard processing, less or more.

All 24 questions have never been from the 16 exams. 21/22 questions are always which is enough to pass ;)

My recommendation: https://lifeintheuktestweb.co.uk/exams/ Do the 16 EXAMS as the link pasted above. Note “exams” not “tests.” The same website has tests also but do the exams. You will pass the test as long you do all the exams at home and are perfect in scoring 24/24 at home. No need to do anythi...
