Well, that is sort of grey area when people do not allow themselves a little more breathing space and push to apply for BC on the 6th anniversary of their arrival to the UK. You have to answer yourself the question: were you exercising treaty rights between August and November 2005? As you started w...

No, not at all! If no decision has been reached, then you are not a UK citizen, therefore you are still an Indian citizen, therefore you can travel on your Indian passport. more precisely, you are not British Citizen until you make an oath of allegiance (or an affirmation) and a pledge, so you will...

NCS is only good if you want to keep your passport Because that's what they are for - they do not give any advice, they just photocopy one's documents and send it to UKBA. BUT, whether it is worth to use them or not depends (IMHO) on the value of documents one has to send to UKBA. When I applied wi...

Depends on who OP is.
If EEA citizen then NCS will need to establish whether OP has exercised treaty rights for 5 years prior obtaining PR status.
OP has not disclosed in his/her post under which route he/she applies.

For some the new price may be "only" £50 (it is actually £56) but for the others like families 2+3 it may be as much as (1294-1010) + (810-600) + (270-150) = 284+210+120 = £614 more, for family 2+2 it is £494 more, for a couple £284 more. And although it is not a recent news, where do you actua...

No, I meant, without getting PR sticker or EEA card (i.e. status granted automatically after exercising treaty rights for 5 years but without any sort of document proving it).

ukpl, I fear you are in danger of inventing a requirement that is not actually there. That is, as regards a Naturalisation requirement, there is no requirement for the person to be working, or to be concerned if they are not working.It is simply not an issue when applying for Naturalisation, and ne...
