Thanks but I mean is it on the same day of ceremony that we get the certificate or few days later after they send it by post?
The certificate is physically handed over to you at the ceremony.
Thanks. That's good news. So I can apply the same night for a passport ;)

I have 2 questions: - Can I travel between now and the ceremony date using my travel document and BRP? - when can I apply for a British passport? Is it on the same day of cere...

Re: Experiences using new UKVCAS for naturalisation/citizenship applications

Also wanted to share my experience with UKVCAS. Another negative experience I'm afraid. After I booked an appointment and paid £200 (for a centre that is 1 hour drive for me since it was the only one available within 5 days) they phoned one day before the appointment saying that the centre has techn...

you can also upload by singing in ukvi website by yourself until few months.
I don’t believe this is the case. If you upload anytjing on UKVI website after they submit it to Home Office it stays there on UKVI amd doesn’t make its way to Home Office.

Re: Experiences using new UKVCAS for naturalisation/citizenship applications

Hi for non eu nationals, where do you upload the passport stamps? There seems to be two options: "Residence in the UK" and "Proof of identity/travel history" The scan of your passport (including all stamps, and preferably all pages even if blank) goes under "proof of application" where it is a mand...

Re: Ex refugee traveling to home country

As per the document in the link above (section 3.3). Once naturalised, you automatically lose the refugee status because you have the protection of your own country now (the UK). So going back to your home country from which you were seeking asylum doesn't automatically mean your new citizenship wil...
