Re: Citizenship Ceremony cancelled due to Covid-19

I have a bit dodgy situation with the council as I don't know which council I am assigned to. If you have not asked for a different council in the application form, by default, your certificate will be sent to the local council of the address that you lived in at the time of your application. Thank...

Re: Citizenship Ceremony cancelled due to Covid-19

I just called Sutton council and they say that all ceremonies are suspended during the lockdown. No information available about private/virtual ceremonies but the lady was fine. I also called the HO and I regret my decision. That madam was absolutely hideous. No way to check, no way to trace, she ha...

Re: Citizenship Ceremony cancelled due to Covid-19

Postman's been....no invitation. I even went as far as checking with my neighbors if they have received my letter because sometimes the postman's a different person and he mixes up the addresses (I live in 57, and I always get mail for 51 or 75 and vice-versa) but they got nothing either. I emailed...

Re: Citizenship Ceremony cancelled due to Covid-19

Dear all friends, I had researched a lot by taking opportunities to friends-circle, HO and council. They have already sent a large amount certificates and haven't put on the system yet. You are going to know on Monday. Please do call your local council and you would be surprised, I feel. Some might...

Re: Citizenship Ceremony cancelled due to Covid-19

So @baybars1 you reckon it would be quicker for early Sep. approvals? You sound quite optimistic and so far your estimation was spot on. I was approved 10th of Sep. hopefully, I won't have to wait until mid-December because it's mad :| This is my projection for your application: Approved on -- Lett...

Re: Citizenship Ceremony cancelled due to Covid-19

If we ignore the noise and consider only what the helpline staff have been consistently relaying (they started to clear the backlog on 7 August 2020, their aim was to clear it by 31 October 2020, further revised to the first week of November, and there is the "new standard" 12-week wait time), in m...

Re: Citizenship Ceremony cancelled due to Covid-19

Astonishing numbers @baybars1 . With making that much money should be absolutely no problem to introduce a track & trace system for invites, certificates, etc... They can even roll out virtual ceremonies by providing software to councils. Probably they are not interested in investing money in that ...

Re: Citizenship Ceremony cancelled due to Covid-19

It's too much hustle for HO to arrange deliveries for everyone individually. I agree that it would be more appropriate to do virtual ceremonies as this situation is unusual, therefore, appropriate measures should be implemented. HO had more than 7 months to come up with a solution, a few councils ar...

Re: Referees question

Thank you CR001 for your prompt response. I have another question as I couldn't find the answer. Do I have to upload all the passport pages or it has to be just an entrance stamp pages? Thank you.

Referees question

Hello, dear members and gurus of the forum. I have a small question. Do I have to get my referees signing the form prior to the online application process or the referees form could be uploaded after I submit my application? Thank you.

Re: Absences exceeded

Thank you for your reply. I just calculated numbers and it seems like I have 2 weeks extra until 480 days limit. Would you say I can travel during this summer or it's better to wait and have lower numbers like 465 days of absence? Please clarify, thank you.

Re: Absences exceeded

Thank you very much alterhase58 ! I have seen the guidance indeed. Do you think it's relevant to provide proof of surgery? To potentially cover a number of absent days... Thank you.
