Re: British Citizenship Decision Letter

It's just a letter confirming the application was approved and that the ceremony needs to be booked. It cannot be used as evidence of citizenship or other legal purpose therefore it would be a waste of postage to send it signed for.

Re: No Time Limit Stamp- EU National

You have ILR (indefinite leave to remain) under the UK regulations, rather than permanent residence under the EEA regulations. The ILR is still valid (assuming you have not broken continuity of residence) even though it's in an expired passport. If you have ambitions of British citizenship, the ILR...

Thanks to the Immigration Board Community

Today I received my approval letter, dated 31.10.2016, which is about 2 months after submission and biometrics. Hopefully next Tuesday ceremony. During the preparation I discovered this discussion board and whilst I didn’t ask many questions I did learn a lot about the UK immigration and citizenship...

Re: Status of pre 2000 ILRs

The applicant may have an old passport with a ILR stamp, but this apparently was never produced or requested by the HO, and the applicant thought it was irrelevant. I think the applicant may produce the ILR stamp with evidence that it had not lapsed . I don't want to hijack this thread, but OP clea...

Re: Status of pre 2000 ILRs

This is worrying.... My application was submitted end August 2016. I was issued with a Residence Permit (blue trifold) for EEC Citizens in December 1979 (based on EEC Regulation dating back to 1968). In December 1984 I received a letter from the Home Office stating "... there are no longer any restr...

Re: Full name format on Naturalisation Certi / invite letter

I'd be happy if they get my name right in that sequence.
Out of interest I looked at my professional certificate and my institute used the same sequence for my name. Don't think there's anything to loose sleep over.

My application was refused at beginning of September. I have sent it off again for reconsideration and I'm dreading the wait. :(
Can you share the reason(s) for refusal - as it may be helpful for forum members and you may receive some feedback as to your options.

From many postings on the subject it seems that referees are not normally contacted. Of course HO can...

Re: British passport application

Based on my understanding of the instructions for passport application: 1) Cancelled Passport - corner is cut off and probably each page stamped "invalid" - not required (I have a few of those). 2) Uncancelled Passport (includes out of date) - required - enclose your 2007 & 2011 PPs. If there are no...

Re: General Discussion During Naturalisation Application Pro

Hi All, I will be applying this month for naturalisation through NCS. Do they post it to HO with Royal Mail tracking or not? If not, would I be OK to purchase a royal mail tracked envelope and ask them to use that? Thank you in advance. I think it is not necessary because they send all the NCS appo...
