Re: April 2014 - Naturalisation Application Timeline

@liuzhbob The letter of approval categorically asked me to contact the local council (HO actually stated the address and phone number of the council to contact) before 21 days to arrange the ceremony. So, when I called the council, they confirmed that my certificate is already with them. So, don't w...

Apply Online not working today (05/03/2013)

Does anyone know how to report to UKBA that Apply Online is not working today? It is going into infinite loop and coming back as website not found. Does anyone know how to report it to UKBA? If we don't take pragmatic steps to report or inform them, it means no one would be able to book appointments...

Read page 55 of the general ground for refusal which directly address cautions. But to put context to the whole non-custodial sentence list start reading from page 15. When you finish reading it please share your view and interpretation of what it means. Your view might help to defuse this knotty is...

@priyadri You will need to tick yes to this question on section 7.1 7.1. Have you or any dependants who are applying with you been convicted of any criminal offence in the UK or any other country? This is because caution comes under non-custodial criminal conviction. If you still not convinced ask t...

To be fair, with the money we pay for UKBA services, I believe we should get better service at least with appointment booking. We don't deserve to be awake till 2am to book appointment.

Like D4109125 rightly said, you will need to declare it as civil judgemen t (not as criminal conviction because CCJ is no criminal record).

Remained legally on student visa till 15-05-2008. Date of Entry to Tier 1 general -> 16-05-2008 as Dependant of T1G. Date of renewal of T1G -> 03-...
