Re: Email from Home office

This thread is a complete joke. It is just an automated email reply because of an enquiry. Why is everyone guessing it is otherwise?

Re: Experiences using new UKVCAS for naturalisation/citizenship applications

I have an email from when I paid online from 12/11/18 not after I've been for biometrics, does the body of the email say : Thank you for your application to the Home Office. Your application has been received and is being considered. It may take up to six months to make a decision on your case. If ...

Re: Experiences using new UKVCAS for naturalisation/citizenship applications

You submitted far too many unnecessary documents. Citizenship is not a repeat of the ILR process. One thing that has me a little worried is people suddenly mentioning proof of address. I always find this quite hit and miss in this country as to what is acceptable. I'm submitting my application this...

Re: Experiences using new UKVCAS for naturalisation/citizenship applications

I went to UKVCAS Croydon and I took pretty much every available document there. Even ones I'd already scanned, but also months of phone bills, council tax statements, water, electric, tenancy etc etc. All for residence proof. Many of which had been used for the previous ILR application, just for sa...

But she’s giving me thread that she can cancel my passport or something else, I’m very scared
She may well be committing a criminal offence. Keep records of everything just in case it needs to be reported to police.

I also agree that your citizenship cannot be revoked in such circumstances.

Re: Experiences using new UKVCAS for naturalisation/citizenship applications

I agree, I applied on 15th Nov and have not yet got any reply. People who applied after me using NCS got their approvals. I paid for Premium Service but they there was a chaos at the centre. They delayed my biometrics by 3 hrs. There is nothing premium about the service. I share your concern, as I ...

Hello, I had applied for naturalisation in November 2018. My application is still pending. I need to travel outside the UK for 35 days next week. I've been regularly viewing application timelines and I've noticed that some people mentioning that approval letter states that citizenship ceremony must...

Re: Proof of residency question

I agree with mtsgill.

1. Passport(s) only are required for your proof of residence.

2. The 5-year list of addresses is not related to your route to ILR or your proof of residence. I only need 3-years residence in UK to qualify for BC, but still have to input 5 years of addresses.

Re: Applying for British Citizenship- Quick question on English Language requirement

In my opinion it's best to take a new test. You obviously have no problem with English and paying £150 for the test gives you peace of mind. Also, bear in mind, the HO now regard the test certificate to be valid for two years only.

Re: Experiences using new UKVCAS for naturalisation/citizenship applications

You should complain to the official UKVCAS email and also to HO. I agree, the whole system feels like a fiasco. Most people who applied in November and used the UKVCAS system have not received their approval yet. A lot of people who applied under the old system seem to have received their approval....

Hi, My partner (non-EEA) just got BPR card and as I am dual EU/British can apply for British citizenship straight away.

Re: Applied British citizenship but not received any acknowledgement

You will have received an email from UKVI confirming receipt of your application a day or two after your submitted it online. You do not get another acknowledgment from Sopra Steria or UKVI after attending your biometric appointment.

Re: previous address outside of UK

During you overseas stay did you maintain your UK residence? If yes, then I suggest it is not necessary to provide the overseas address of where you stayed. If no, then give details. It will not affect your application in my opinion.

Re: Experiences using new UKVCAS for naturalisation/citizenship applications

If you apply online you use a separate downloaded form for each referee.

The paper application uses one form for two referees. I disagree with this method because the second referee will be able to see the personal data of the first referee. In this case I would still use one page for each referee.
