Re: First British passport application

That's normal. You just need to pick it up. Your child can be present when the parents take their oath or affirmation, but won't be asked to do so.

Re: Citizenship ceremony letter received but no confirmation from Homeoffice

Thank you for the advice.Even if I attend a private ceremony, still I don't think I will get the British passport by end of August. Therefore,could you please tell me,do I have the rights to postpone the ceremony up until September 2nd week? You could have a look at the time lines: https://www.immi...

Re: Citizenship ceremony letter received but no confirmation from Homeoffice

Why not just pay the £100-£120 for a private ceremony next week, and get a British passport? If you apply for a passport in the first week of August, you’ll get it before the last week of August.

Re: First British Passport application - options

The simplest thing is avoid 2 consecutive generations being born abroad. If your child were born abroad and remained settled in the UK, they're not likely to have any issues for their children. If that child were married to someone who is British otherwise than by descent, your grandchild would be B...

Re: First British Passport application - options

The 2 children born in the UK are British citizens by birth if one of the parents had ILR or citizenship when they were born. If they only gained their citizenship later (when the first of the two parents got ILR) then they are British citizens by registration. For those 2 children, it doesn't matte...

Re: Baby born to mother after mother on ilr and father on student visa

Congrats on the baby. The baby is British at birth because the mother had ILR prior to birth (assuming the baby was born in UK).Your immigration or marriage status doesn't affect the child.

To everyone who's here who's a refugee and worried that your application is taking longer than usual because you're in the 4th month since application, please be rest assured that it is completely normal and it's not necessarily anything to do with refugee status. If you look closely at the timeline...

Re: Travelling in Europe on foreign passport after BC is received. Will Immigration allow back into the UK

If you apply for your passport right away you'll get it in a maximum of 3 weeks. HMPO says it takes 6 weeks (in reality, it doesn't if you apply within the first year of getting citizenship).

Re: Intent to Stay in the UK

If you've already made a decision to leave for 3 years, that adversely affects your application now. You'd need to either hold off your decision to embark on a 3 year course abroad, or explore how you can re-establish residency in the UK after your studies and meet the citizenship requirements at an...

They currently also request the passport you first entered the UK with. Note that it takes 2-3 weeks to get your British passport and supporting documents.

Re: Leaving 2nd job, how do i contact the Home Office

From what I understand, you only need to inform them of adverse or material changes, e.g. if you are under investigation for a crime or declared bankrupt (adverse) or (post) address change (material change). As you applied for British Citizenship you almost certainly have Indefinite Leave to Remain...
