Re: Citizenship Ceremony cancelled due to Covid-19

I wanted to share a good news with all. I received an email from my local register office notifying me that private ceremonies are available M-F, cost of a £100. I think that's promessing. The only thing is my wife did not receive the document from home office yet other than a reply to my email 2 w...

Re: General Discussion During Naturalisation Application Process

Thank you for sharing your view. I agree, I was privileged and lucky enough to get mine in over two months, I am not even trying to hide that. But when I applied, I resigned to the fact that obtaining a nationality is a ‘privilege but not a right’. So, while I would have been frustrated if I didn’t...

Spouse Visa 2.5yrs or 6months Confusion

I'm doing my research on appropriate Visa for my partner and i noticed this on HO website: "You’ll get permission to stay for 2.5 years, or for 6 months if you’re applying as a fiancé, fiancée or proposed civil partner. After this you’ll need to apply to extend your stay." Does this mean after the 6...

Thanks for your response

But did you mean entitled to register when the parent applies for british citizenship?

Re: SET (Protection) Route applications

@dgal @destiny2014 Thank you people.
My question to you is how long roughly do you think it took them to process the April applications
I think it is safe to say that the applications are now taking 4 months to be processed. And yes the BRP card came a day before the letter.


Good luck people

Life after Set Protection

Hi guys i've been a silent observer over the years, and I must admit there has been an awfully lot of helpful people on this forum. Today I would like to pick your brains of ILR set protection: 1. After a person has been successfully granted ILR, are they still under protection? and therefore exempt...
