Still i guess will be called separately by different interviewers. I hope that you are not getting child with you for interview and it could be the problem if you both have same time slots. When we appeared for our interviews we specifically asked for slots one after another as we were having our s...

I can give you an informed answer as I just went through this process and had to get names officially changed (for different reasons). The naturalisation certificates did not have our middle names (for the whole family). We applied for the passport with the middle names as that is how all other iden...

Do they call individually or couples are called together for interview? Individually. When you book the appointment you will get separate slots. You said that you have interview on Sat. have you checked the times on the interview confirmation letter? Thanks. Actually that is the reason why I asked....

Re: Passport Application - missed detail by countersignatory

Just realised that the passport counter signatory had forgotten to put their passport number and the form has now been sent. This happened despite using the the Check and Send service. Our own fault for not checking. Anyway, what will happen now? Will the application be rejected and we have to appl...

I went with a private as I couldn't make the first available date that was a month away. And didn't want to wait for 2 months as I needed passport to travel. But my local council only charged £75 (should have been only £67 according to their website) for 2 adults so I was quite happy to pay this. I ...

Just received our approval letter! It took us 160 days in total to get it (applied on 28 March). However, we'd requested discretionary for my wife as she had spent more than 90 days in the last year so that was also a factor.

Good luck to all, patience is the key!

If you carefully read the application form, for naturalisation there is no requirement for the referee to be engaged professionally with the applicant. He needs to have professional standing. Just write a family friend. For the child registration, the referee needs to be profesionally engaged with ...

Jambo,

Many thanks for your fast reply. We will certainly provide an explanation along with medical records if needed. The guidelines seem a little reassuring as she is at least within the 450 days limit.

Regards.

Vinny, thanks. Actually I'd read that guidance which is quite useful. But can you/someone please let me know if there is a quicker way to process the settlement application, such as application in person?

Thanks in advance.

Re: ILR for infant in India

Can we apply for her registration as British straight in India? I know chances are slim but thought would still check. No, as she was born out of UK, she can not be registered as British Citizenship. Thanks for your response, I also read the guidance which mentions the same. However, I got an inter...
