In both cases the HO refused to publish the list NOR confirm the list... because the list of blacklisted...

Re: Delaying the citizenship ceremony possible?

Hi all, If I were to apply for citizenship today and receive my approval letter in say in one month in August (as I can see from many recent cases), can I call up my council and defer the citizenship ceremony to sometime in November?

Re: Waiting " sucks"

Indirect discrimination perhaps, though arguably justified in the interest of national security which, generally outweighs anything else. +1 there is obviously a reason why HO has to do extra checks - I am sure they don't do it for just for fun it could also be that these countries take a longer ti...

As a matter of interest, does anyone know the validity of the biometric ID obtained through ILR once one has been naturalized. I am curious if it is still a valid form of ID. Are we expected to destroy the biometric ID or return it to UKBA/HO? Thanks in advance Can you also use it as ID proof when ...

why are you worried? the guidance clearly states who you cannot use as a referee (e.g. relative, someone that works for HO) .. as long as they do not fall into this category there are no issues - they can be friend, colleague, etc

there is no need to send any PR documentation nor the ILR Biometric card

if you are applying for passport by way of naturalisation then you just need to send your current passport and your citizenship certificate

NCS without a doubt - they could actually save you money if there is something really wrong with your application and stop you from applying or give you guidance to remedy the issue

E.g. if you live in Islington then the approval letter tells you that YOU should contact the council on 020xxxxxx to schedule your cere...
