Re: Bankruptcy impact on the dependant partner

This advice is unrelated to the naturalisation, but bankruptcy may not be your only option. You may already have spoken to them recently, but if not, do talk to the Money and Pensions Service (previously Money Advice Service) before taking the nuclear option.

Re: Naturalisation application form specific question

If you applied for ILR after that date and had to meet the English language requirements for ILR, you answer YES to that question.

Re: British passport application return of documents

It typically takes around 2 weeks (between 10 and 16 days) from the day you mail it in, so there’s a risk you may not get your documents back in time.

If you became a citizen more than a year ago, it’s likely to take longer because you are more likely to be invited for an interview.

Re: First British passport application

Thanks all , your help is much appreciated, and the final question , when applying passport online and upload the photo online, do you still need a hard copy of photo to send with the supporting documents? No, you don’t need to send a physical photo. If you take the photo at a professional studio l...

Re: Documents for citizenship application

Hello, Does anybody know if P60 and HMRC letters are good to attach to the application for citizenship? Should I also attach something to proof that 5 years ago on the date of application I was in UK? Could this be a payslip? P60s will constitute evidence for the period they cover. You can find mor...

Re: Applying for the 1st. adult passport

You only need:

- Your naturalisation certificate.
- Any current valid passports for other countries that you hold.
- The passport you entered the UK with when you started this period of residency.

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.

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.

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).
