Re: December 2013 - Naturalization timeline

Not getting through to an advisor on that number today, either option 2 or 3, some lady just says all advisors are busy and the call gets disconnected. Anyone else trying with more luck? Am I doing the right things?

I had sent a special delivery envelope with my application through NCS, just so that the approval can get to me faster.

Re: November 2013 - Naturalization Application Timeline

My theory based on recent events, is HO has allocated separate teams of CWs for each month Oct, Nov, Dec etc, hence the approvals are coming in parallel and not in a sequence.

This is a great move if its true.

Re: Change of Name and Citizenship Query

My wife is going to be in the same boat soon so looking for some inputs. Also would she face problems due to the difference in names in her subsequent OCI appl...

Re: Naturalisation payment slip

Hi pasha44,

Yes somehow write both names in the same space. You need to fill only one form, £1550 for the joint application.
