Re: December 2013 - Naturalization timeline

Hi vengud123,

IIRC they told you on phone that your approval was despatched on the 10th of February, any luck with the approval letter or call from the council for ceremony yet?

Mine was despatched on the 11th apparently, but no updates yet.

Re: December 2013 - Naturalization timeline

We may have started celebrating a little bit too early. I called the council for a private appointment, they have no knowledge of my approval yet, and I have not received the letter either.

Guess another weeks wait or so looking at royal mail times for second class post at the moment.

Re: December 2013 - Naturalization timeline

Congrats TTOE mate. So what did you choose for your wife, maiden name or married name on the certificate? In my wifes case its going to be her maiden name, but when applying for passport we will be using deedpoll to get it in her married name.
