Re: fixed penalty notices - naturalisation application

Not talking from my experience but the advice on the forum has been that PCNs are not to be disclosed unless you contested in court and lost the case. The FPN can also be ignored as there is only one in the past 12 months and it was paid in full and not escalated to the courts.

Re: Do you need your ILR BRP to apply for naturalisation?

HO approval letter should suffice. The ref on the letter is linked to the BRP, when the letter is issued, the BRP generation is triggered.

Re: Naturalisation Criteria

There are no guarantees when it comes to discretion, all you can do is provide all the documents to support your case and add details on the additional information page, but you should also be prepared to accept the consequences if your case fails to meet their absences discretion criteria (you coul...

Re: British Citizenship three short questions

1. As long as the FPN was paid and not contested in court, you do not need to disclose it on application and no need to send the licence /counterpart (but licence may be required if used as proof of ID when taking the LIUK test) 2. Again as the late payment was cleared when the demand was made, it s...

Re: Residence Query for AN form

As advised, you do not prove residency using payslips, you need to show your residency permit stamps on your passport ( work permit, T1, T2, HSMP..... etc) for 5 years and 1 yr ILR (Biometric Residency Permit).

Re: Naturalisation - 1.17 past addresses

Under the present address (1.16) you are being asked "Please state the date that you moved into this address", once you provide this date, I am sure they will be able to calculate that you have been living at the same address for 7 years so you can safely ignore 1.17

Re: letter of acknowlegement?

The acknowledgement is only sent out once they have deducted the fees and registered your application on their systems. If you look at the various time lines for Naturalisation, they are still collecting fees from around 24/25 Oct 13.

New one should be sufficient (even if it has expired), unless you graduated with a MSc from Uni of Manchester? In which case you will not need IELTS as the MSc was awarded in the UK

Re: English requirement for BC for both me and depedent

My advice would be the same as that given by maximux79, take a print out of the PBS calc specific to the 10 points for education and submit the degree cert and transcripts (if you have the transcript).

Re: Identity used for Life in the UK test

The requirement is that you include the ID used for the LiUK test but there isn't much you can do at the moment. Just wait for your application to be registered on their system (usually happens after the fees have been deducted) and wait for them to request for the missing document. It might get los...

Fill in the PBS points based calculator here: http://www.ukba.homeoffice.gov.uk/pointscalculator If it awards you 10 points, then you do not need a NARIC cert to prove your qualification meets the English level requirements. Just print the results of the PBS calculation and attach with your original...

Re: Query on a document for NCS appointment

Nope sorry, could not find anything in the guidance regarding substitution of a passport for a naturalisation cert. Technically it should be possible for them to look up your passport details from the cert but if in doubt, submit a copy of the passport so that there aren't any delays.
