Re: Applying for UK citizenship - future intentions condition

Worst case they may even cancel your ILR if you travel abroad for work. There have been cases where people were naturalised and travelled abroad for work & their first passport applications were rejected. please go through this thread: https://www.immigrationboards.com/british-citizenship/hmpo-quest...

Re: HMPO questions Naturalisation Status withdraws passport application

Yes that's correct. You should apply for your first passport from the UK and if they question you on your work situation in India - you could justify it by saying India doesn't let people surrender their citizenship till you produce a passport of the naturalised country.

Re: HMPO questions Naturalisation Status withdraws passport application

In my opinion the passport was delayed because in your application for the first passport you mentioned your employer in India Not sure if you were on the UK or Indian payroll.
