Re: How do I know if the post did not lose my confirmation letter?

Looks similar to junk mail :lol: the irony! There is no way to check online what your status update is. You simply need to wait to hear back from HO. It can take a couple of months up to 6 months and sometimes longer. Approval letters are set second class post in a brown A5 envelope. Looks similar t...

Re: Need Advice First Time British Passport after naturalization

In that case he should not include any middle name in his passport application, right? So your foreign passport has a middle name on it? OP has stated that passport does NOT have a middle name on the biometric page etc, which is why the citizenship cert was issued as it was, i.e to match the passpor...

Re: Need Advice First Time British Passport after naturalization

So your foreign passport has a middle name on it? Make sure not to confuse middle name with father’s name. On my foreign passport, I have the following: Surname: xxx Forename: xxxx Father’s name: xxx Mother’s name: xxxxx Father’s name is not a middle name in that scenario. Your passport application ...

I have high confidence that you only need to scan from 2008 onward but eventhough I am confident don’t take my opinion at face value :) Are you going to report your absences from 2006 or 2008, obviously depending on the route you are following. If from 2006 you will have to scan everything. They usu...

Re: No Surname on Naturalisation certificate

You shouldn’t apologise, it was a rude reply! If I were you, I would go for paper application through post office but first I would call HMPO and explain the situation before you apply so that you don’t pay and lose the money if there are other requirements/ suggestions by HMPO. Well apologies, but ...
