Am I eligible for Naturalisation?

You can apply for British Nationality or Naturalisation under the British Nationality Act 1981. As a British citizen, you can live and work in the UK free from immigration controls.

Applications for British Citizenship can be made by individuals who are married to a British citizen, or by individuals who meet certain criteria for naturalisation.


Criteria for Naturalisation

There is a number if criteria which must be satisfied in full before your application will be approved, in brief

  • Time spent in the UK
  • Date when you were granted Indefinite Leave to Remain
  • Have you passed Life in the UK test
  • Can you satisfy English language requirement
  • The total number of absences from the UK over the qualifying period
  • Any criminal or civil matters which may disbar you

The application form is fairly straightforward but the information provided must be accurate and true or the application will be delayed or worse refused and in some cases action taken if UKVI alleges you have made a false statement or submitted a fake document.

Once approved, you will receive an invitation to attend a Citizenship ceremony which is usually local to where you live and at the ceremony you will receive your Certificate of Naturalisation.

Thereafter you are free to apply for a British passport which is usually processed within approximately six weeks.

If you have any questions regarding your application for British Citizenship contact us today.
