Re: Fixed penalty notice question

Thank you very much for your reply! I thought the same as you but then found the following question and answer written by one of moderators in the thread "British Citizenship - Good character requirements": Q11 - Should I declare my conviction even if it is spent? You should declare all spent and un...

Fixed penalty notice question

Hi I applied for naturalisation last month and declared all 3 fixed penalty notices that are still on my licence. I now received a police check which I had applied for a long time before submitting my application but it took ages to arrive. The police check shows a fixed penalty notice for speeding ...

NCS appointment tomorrow and panicking

Hi I hope someone could advise. My husband's NCS appointment is tomorrow and I just found online that the AN application was updated in January. I don't mind printing out and filling out a new application but I won't manage to get my referees to fill out a new form by tomorrow. They filled the form ...

Re: Non-EU spouse of EU national - documents needed

Thank you Noajthan for your reply. It's very kind of you that you provide valuable advice to so many forum users. Regarding physical presence in the UK. My understanding is that since I am now a British citizen, my husband is only required to present 3 years (and not 5) evidence of physical presence...

Non-EU spouse of EU national - documents needed

Hi everyone! I am an EU national and now I also have British nationality. When applying for BC, apart from my PR (the blue document) I had to submit evidence showing that I was physically in the UK during the past 5 years. This was because EU passports are not stamped at UK airports. My non-EEA husb...

Re: March 2015 Naturalization application timeline

I was wondering, has anyone who applied in March been asked by the Home Office to provide further original documents, such as payslips, letters from university, etc? I've seen a few posts from people saying that they received letters asking for further evidence and was wondering if it's a norm nowad...

Re: Naturalization as a family member of an EEA national

I guess this is especially important in the case of nonEU spouses of EU nationals because they don't have to exercise treaty rights when applying for PR (and physical residency can be proven by providing statements or bills) but they have to provide payslips/letters from employers or university/coll...

Re: Naturalization as a family member of an EEA national

https://www.gov.uk/becoming-a-british-citizen/if-your-spouse-is-a-british-citizen I think this confirms what I said. It says that 3 years of residency is required from a person holding ILR or PR and married to a BC. Yes but for an EEA person to achieve PR they (sadly) require 5 years of treaty righ...

Re: Naturalization as a family member of an EEA national

My understanding is that as soon as one spouse becomes a British citizen the other spouse can apply on this basis. This means that only 3 years of residency are taken into consideration by the HO and the applicant doesn't have to wait 12 months after obtaining PR. Of course a marriage certificate n...

Re: Employment History related question

If you have Indefinite Leave to Remain, they can't deny you for being unemployed. ....... actually they can ! ...... and they have in so many cases. What do you mean? Have you heard of any refusals simply based on gaps in employment? I mean employment gaps during periods when an applicant had the r...

Re: 10 years employment history - advice needed

I just read both comments again. I think what Secret.simon meant was that students are allowed to work only a certain number of hours so if an applicant stated that he was working full time while on student visa, the HO would likely refuse the application for citizenship.

Re: 10 years employment history - advice needed

Thank you both for your replies.
Yes, we know that students can work but she wasn't working while being a student hence the confusion. She got very upset because she thought her application may be refused doe to large gaps in her employment history.

10 years employment history - advice needed

Hi I'm writing on behalf of a friend who is about to apply for naturalisation. She is a non-EEA family member (wife) of an EEA national and holds a PR. The problem is that she hasn't worked much since arriving in the UK about 10 years ago. She first came here on a student visa and then married her E...
