Re: Do I need to apply for naturalization

You need to make a naturalisation application, get approved by the Home Office, attend the citizenship ceremony at your local council and get the naturalisation certificate. That last stage is when you become a British citizen. Then you can apply for a British passport.

Re: Visa options for UK national bringing back Taiwanese wife and child (UK national)

As I will be doing a postgrad, the loan for this is £10000 so it is likely that we will be over the £22600 requirement. I am not sure that a loan counts as income. IF in the unlikely event Brexit doesn't go ahead or if we move to the EU I'm entitled to an Italian passport which enables access to th...

Re: Marriage in Morocco

Keep in mind that you will be only able to sponsor one wife as a spouse for UK immigration purposes. The other spouse can join you if she comes to the UK on some other (non-spousal) visa, such as work or student visa. Children born to both spouses will be British citizens by descent if born abroad (...

Re: Lost residence card on the brink of Brexit

I was thinking of applying for the settlement scheme myself - even though I am an Irish citizen. Do you know if I would I get automatic settled status ? Or pre settled? As an Irish citizen, you are considered automatically settled in the UK. However, if you make an application under the Settled Sta...

Re: Lost residence card on the brink of Brexit

So when she applies for the EU settlement scheme - she must meet the five year requirement before getting settled status? (On her own and not through me)? I merely meant that the spouse needs to have resided in the UK for five years as the family member of the EEA citizen. So, if the EEA citizen ha...

I believe he has ILR.
I suspected as much, Vinny, but I wasn't certain. Thank you for the additional input.

In which case, can he register immediately under Section 4(2)? Or should he apply for an ILR BRP using Form NTL and then register under Section 4(2)?

Re: British overseas citizen no right to work

After everything I’ve explained, do you think there would be any issues if he applied for ILR? There is no direct route for him to apply for ILR, except if (a) he gets his Cypriot citizenship (with a clear statement that it is from birth) and then applies for Settled Status (which is technically IL...

Re: British overseas citizen no right to work

Did your husband live in the UK for five continuous years before 1983? If he did, can he prove it? It has the observation that she has the right of abode in the UK which is crossed out. No date so I’m assuming it was there when issued. There is another observation underneath which says the holder is...

How can we check if my husband actually has Cypriot nationality? You could present the facts to the Cypriot embassy in the UK and ask if your husband qualifies for a Cypriot passport. Because Cyprus is a part of both the Commonwealth and the EU, Cypriot citizens have almost all the rights of Britis...
