Naturalisation now after Surinder Singh route in 2009

Hello everyone, it has been a while since my last visit here... 5 years! I have to thank again all those who assisted me back then (Vinny & Obie) and I have to say that immigrationboards has certainly helped me with my hurdles. So to summarise, I returned to the UK via the Surinder Singh route, afte...

Starting from the beginning when she was illegal, it took about a year and a half....

Starting from when she made the application for the permit... it took about 3 weeks to receive it, bearing in mind Italy is literally "shut down" over August, so that might have been a factor for the delay.

Thanks for the reply Obie. Wow, where did your friend apply from? Makes me wonder how they could define that as a marriage of convenience?!?
I will also include a letter which confirms an interview for a job upon my arrival back in the UK. Any thoughts,
Your answers are always greatly appreciated!
