Re: Evidence for naturalisation

Yes. At least, that's what I put down and there was no issue.

Re: Overstaying and BC

I'm by no means an expert on this, so hopefully others can also comment. But my understanding is that you must be clear of any immigration breaches for the 10 years immediately preceding the application for BC. Did you come into the country illegally in 2009? Or did you already have a visa upon arri...

Re: prove for being in the UK 5 exactly 5 years before the day the Home Office receives the Citizenship application

OK that's news to me - did paper application two years ago and didn't have to prove it specifically. I also applied quite recently and saw no such documentary "requirement". Anyway, I'm not sure what one (especially EU citizen) could provide to prove that they were in the country on such a specific...

Re: Applying for first time passport and keeping my old passport

Do you suggest waiting for the holidays to get over or rush it now? I don't really mind having a passport soon, I am only interested in giving away my passport for as little time as possible. Depends on how long you can live without it/whether you're planning to travel any time soon. If not, you co...

Re: any point complaining about UKVCAS?

From my experience, there is an issue here, and it may well be worth writing to your MP. I live in London, and when I tried to book my appointment (which to be fair, was closer to when the service first came out), the only free ones were in a month's time, and I ended up also having to fork out £200...

Re: British Citizenship after PR (not completed 12 months)

As you seem to be aware, you risk getting rejected if one year has not passed since you officially qualified for PR. Do you remember what evidence you submitted for your PR application, and what the earliest date on those documents might be? If you're not aware of the dates, I'd strongly suggest tha...

Re: ***Wrong service Selected in Naturalization application***

When I applied, you could change to the new service if you had initially selected the old service, but not the other way around. I'm not sure if this is still available, but you could try to ring the nationality helpline to find out.

Or maybe others on here have suggestions on this point.

Re: Contact by post 21 days.

I don't think it's at all "normal" for you to be informed about the decision by email. I think you're reading a bit too much into this. Just wait for the letter: as they say, it's on its way.

Re: Insurance claim / Court judgement. Will this impact Citizenship app?

the claim was settled by the insurance company in the court. I am not a criminal or do not have any criminal or civil case and have a good record since I am in UK. Would this help me get my citizenship? So was the issue settled in a court or not? And was it settled in your favour? If not in your fa...
