This topic is in the Ireland sub forum for Irish naturalisation, not sure if your advice is based on British citizenship by naturalisation, which obvs doesn't apply.
Ouops, sorry for that. My advice is based on British Citizenship. It doesn't stand for Irish citizenship.
Thank you anyway :)

Citizenship refusal

Hi all.

I’m curious if anyone has ever heard for someone being refused on the basis of late tax returns? And if so, what was the background and conclusion of the matter?

And at which stage do refusals often occur. Have they ever occurred after advanced stage?


Thank you in advance

Citizenship Denial

Hi guys.

Does anyone know the stages at which an application can get denied and the possible reasons per stage

Eg
Stage 1 - obviously if don’t meet the requirements (length of residency etc)
Stage 2- criminal record etc
Advanced stage?

Have there ever been denials at this stage?

Many thanks

Ceremony 2020

Hi all.

I am in final stage. I assume it’s unlikely I make it to the next ceremony in December.

Just curious anyone know if there has ever been a ceremony earlier than April in previous years.

Thanks in solidarity.

And whether having a reference number is an indication that your application has moved forward to stage 2. I'm not sure how knowing the teams helps anything... but I...
