Naturalisation - Date of first arrival in the UK

Hi all, Applying for naturalisation following 12 month ILR following 5 years on Tier 2. However, before all of that qualifying period, I was also a Masters student in the UK with a Tier 4 visa. I understand that period didn't qualify for the 5 year period (i.e. been here 7 years total) In the applic...

Re: Experiences using new UKVCAS for naturalisation/citizenship applications

People applying for naturalization can still travel, but as I’m applying for my daughter’s registration, the waiting is super stressful as we can be stuck for 6 months without being able to travel.

Re: Experiences using new UKVCAS for naturalisation/citizenship applications

You said they will take 6+ months - is that based on fact? Where did you hear it?

The mention about rejection was simply to exaggerate the fact that your comments are simply meant to scare other users if they're not based on evidence.

Re: Experiences using new UKVCAS for naturalisation/citizenship applications

Very worried that there are almost zero reports of people applying through this method having received a response. Before this service, it seemed there was an average of 6 weeks. I appreciate the holidays might've impacted this, but having read only a single case from November being approved seems l...

Re: Child waiting for MN1 travelling abroad

Thanks, both. Indeed it seems you have the same uncertainty as I do. Brazilians don't need a visitor visa, but bringing her in as a visitor would technically not be right. She is a visitor awaiting BC (as she was born in the country she's entitled to it), but I just can't see how them being relaxed ...

Has any UKVCAS applicant received a response yet?

I haven't read a single case in the timeline topic of applicants through the new service getting a response.
It seems my decision to have paid for the premium lounge was terrible - clearly would've been better off sending documents by post for a MN1 application.

Any thoughts here?

Thanks

Re: Child waiting for MN1 travelling abroad

I mean applying for the visa now so I can travel.
What would that visa be?
Who knows if she’ll be registered by the time we return, no idea how long this will take.

Re: Experiences using new UKVCAS for naturalisation/citizenship applications

Same concern here. And I even used the premium service (£200+). If that is actually slower than the old service, Can’t help but feel I was scammed!

Re: Child waiting for MN1 travelling abroad

Hi all,

Just adding to this - if she cannot travel and come back before she gets a British passport, what kind of dependent visa do we need to get her if we need to travel ahead of that? Both parents have ILR. Is there a ILR dependent Visa we could try to get before then?

Many thanks

Same question here (no point discussing the contents of the application with my 9-month old), would be great to hear back from anyone who's submitted it.

Re: Premium Service appointment booking issue for ILR (LR)

Used Distill while at work and kept losing my windows to book (eg. was in meetings when the page changed). What worked for me on day 3 of trying was to refresh the booking page on my phone exactly at midnight and a slot appeared.
I think trying different devices at midnight can help. Good luck all!
