To answer your question requires a knowledge of Malaysian citizenship law as well as British law. As posted above, it is possible to renounce British citizenship – although only if you have or will gain another citizenship. (In other words, you can't renounce British citizenship if that would make...

Hi everyone, I'm a little confused about this requirement that you have to be in the UK for a week after you apply for citizenship. Does anyone know why this is? And how exactly would they even know if you are here or not?? Thx for your help! Is it actually a requirement or is it just advice? You m...

How will they know this? Use NCS - you do not need to send passport. The NCS will photocopy each page of the passport, I imagine. But I don't think it's a problem, provided that the OP fulfils the requirements for naturalisation. In any case, the application for the Australian visa was made before ...

Based on what you post, your children are both Canadian and British and so are entitled to both passports. A Canadian citizen can (generally) enter the UK without a visa for a period of 6 months as a visitor (i.e. assuming that no work etc is intended). However, what are you/they going to say when i...

Yes, unless you are the spouse or civil partner of a British citizen (and applying on that basis), you need to have held settled status – in this case ILR – for at least 12 months before applying for naturalisation.

Since you appear to be a permanent resident however I believe your child is automatically a British citizen (I hope others will comment on that). That is correct. I'd advise getting your child a British passport, since it is the only satisfactory way of demonstrating British citizenship in this cir...

You should be able to travel, because your husband can travel on his existing passport. A request for a return of passport does not mean the withdrawal of a naturalisation application.

Thanks very much Christophe. Should I mention in the application that I travel for contract assignments? Would this cause unnecessary confusion? No, I wouldn't mention it particularly.

Re: british citizenship question plz?

There is no particular requirement to be in employment (or to have been in employment) to apply for naturalisation. There is also no problem with short periods outside the UK during the qualifying period. Are you a British citizen? In that case she can apply as the spouse of a British citizen, in wh...

I wouldn't think that was necessary. For example, if you travelled a lot for work and stayed in hotels, would you give the hotels' addresses, even if you stayed in the same ones over and over again? No, and it's sufficient in your case to give the address of what you call your main residence. (I am ...

If he entered UK for the first time in Feb. 08, then he cannot apply for naturalisation before the 3rd anniversary of the date of entry in Feb. 08.

As above, it's absolutely not true. There is no requirement for a British citizen to hold a passport, and plenty don't.
