I mean to be fair she probably would have changed it eventually anyway, but it just created unnecessary delay and hassle.

Thanks.

Renewing UK Passport Abroad

Hi all, Can someone please answer a hypothetical question? Once granted UK citizenship and a passport, is it safe to assume that the applicant can move abroad to live and work without time restrictions?
