British Citizenship Application : Naturalisation As British Citizen : British Nationality Application

  British Citizenship Application OR Application for Naturalisation as a British Citizen is first step in getting UK Passport. Citizenship Application or Naturalization Application when approved, makes you eligible for attending the Citizenship Ceremony. When you attend Citizenship Ceremony you receive the Certificate of Naturalisation as a British Citizen under British Nationality Act 1981, and you are British Citizen from that date onwards. Once you have received the Certificate of Naturalisation, you can apply for UK Passport.

You have to submit the Citizenship or Naturalisation application by post and there is no same day premium service available. However, once we prepare your Citizenship application, you can take it to Nationality Checking Service at your local Council where they will check the application form and supporting documents, will take photocopies of all the supporting documents and then they will forward the Citizenship application to the Home Office. This way you can avoid sending your passport to the Home Office and can travel outside the UK while your UK citizenship application is under consideration. Please note that there is a fee payable to Nationality Checking Service and they do not help you with completing the application form or supporting documents.

You can apply for British Citizenship or British Nationality after you have lived in the UK for at least one year or 12 months without any immigration restriction or 1 year after UK Residency. This means that you can apply for British Citizenship after 3 years continuous stay as Spouse or Partner of some one settled in the UK or 5 years under eligible immigration categories such as Work Permit, HSMP, Tier 1, Tier 2 etc. The most important criteria for British Nationality is 12 months continuous stay in the UK after Indefinite Leave To Remain in the UK.

UK Passport Application

UK Border Agency, Home Office has announced that the Rules for British Citizenship will be changing from July 2011 and there will be provisions for Probationary Citizenship for one year before full citizenship will be granted. In view of this, if you have already been granted ILR, and if you complete 12 months after ILR before the new rules are implemented, you should submit your Naturalisation application as soon as you qualify for British Citizenship

What Our Clients say...
How I wish such a site was available when I applied for HSMP and came to UK under HSMP! Till before two days of our departure for the UK, we were not sure about where we will go when we land and if there would be any one to receive us at the airport. It was really a time of a lot of stress for us. Fortunately for us some friends of friends helped us, but I am sure not all of us are so lucky and HSMP Services will be able to help those who need such support.   More...
