Grandparents information

Hi All, It is my understanding that if you were on Tier 1 and then got your ILR and then applied for citizenship (AN1 form), then you do not need to fill in the details of your grandparents as per page 12 of the guidance notes. Is that correct? This one is pedantic but I have 4 uncancelled passports...

Re: 21 days to book ceremony lapsed

Based on the fact that I was able to book an appointment after 21 days had lapsed would suggest that either this rule does not exist or is not enforced as strictly.

Re: 21 days to book ceremony lapsed

OK, here is the interesting update. I managed to get a hold of someone in the council today who has now booked me a ceremony.

They didn't ask anything about the 21 days lapse, they just booked a ceremony for me.

Is there any cause for concern that they will say something later on?

Regards,

Re: 21 days to book ceremony lapsed

The post would suggest that while there is a 21 day limit, councils can choose to book your appointment. Is my understanding correct?

21 days to book ceremony lapsed

Hi

I tried to call the council numerous times and unfortunately today 21 days have lapsed. What does this mean for my approval? Am I in trouble? What can I do?

NCS without appointment on Saturday

Is there any council in the London area that provides nationality checking service on a saturday without having a prior booking.

If I want to get an appointment for tomorrow, is there any chance? I do not have a booking.

Can I just go sit there in the hope that they will take me?

Regards,

Re: Points calculator for English and Degree

I swear by the power of Google as well. However, it does not give Tier 1 anymore. And the others are slightly different plus i was worried that HO may treat that as fradulent activity.

References and address history

Hi All, Straight to the points: 1) Does the HO ever call or contact your references. The reason I ask is that while they know me, they obviously will not be able to answer any detailed questions about me. Any instances of this in the past? 2) I do not have a copy of my ILR application and do not kno...

Wife cannot apply for citizenship at the same time???

Hi, NCS just told me that my wife is not eligible for citizenship as the applications are independent. Is the NCS correct? 1) My wife and I both got the ILR in January 2015. 2) My wife has only been in the country for 4 years to date. 3) I have been in the country for 6 years now.

Re: Which form to use for wife to apply?

Sorry for the confusion. Yes the guy is on Tier 1. And the wife came in September 2012 so needs to stay for five years to get the ILR. So he is going to go for ILR in April. What form should he use for his wife once he gets the ILR?
