today i have sent a fax, and i am planing to write a complaint any suggestion???? My feeling is, like I said before, it seems your details closely match of an undesired person, and probably that led to such a long wait for naturalisation approval. Now HMPO must have picked up the same thing, but I ...

I think it would be wiser for the Home Office to set-up an online tracking system which shows the progress of an application. Given the cost of applications and the relatively short period it takes to make a decision (an hour or two for a straight forward application) I can see why people ask every...

Congratulations Blackhole. You have waited for a long time but I am happy :D :D that finally you got your approval. We applied in the same month (Nov 2011).

Habitual weekly/ bi-weekly emails to UKBA ( despite clear proof no action is taken to provide a response ), discussion of wasting MP's time to complain despite not reaching 6 months, incessant worry about p...
