UK Citizenship

It is possible to apply for UK Citizenship after being granted Indefinite Leave to Remain (ILR). You may also qualify for British Nationality through Registration or through the Right of Abode in the UK.

You can become a British National without giving up citizenship in your original country of nationality.

We will manage your application from start to finish, to ensure that it is done right the first time, avoiding costs in re-applying!

What are the criteria for UK Citizenship?

If you wish to apply for UK Citizenship you must be at least 18 years old and have been a resident in Britain for at least three years.

To apply for UK Citizenship where you have only been in Britain for three or more years you must:

·         Have held (ILR) and be married to a UK citizen

·         Have not spent more than 270 days outside the UK in the last three years and no more than 90 days in the last 12 months

·         be able to speak English

You may have been in Britain for five or more years. If this is the case you must:

·         Have held (ILR) and be married to a UK citizen

·         Have had ILR in the UK for at least 12 months

·         Have held a UK Marriage Visa or Unmarried Partner Visa (De Facto) for at least two years

·         Have not spent more than 450 days outside the UK in the last five years and no more than 90 days in the last 12 months

 be able to speak English

What we can do for you:

In order to complete your UK Citizenship application efficiently your immigration matter will be dealt with in five stages:

1.     A detailed assessment of your personal circumstances

2.     Pre-application, where we will ensure that we receive the correct documents to strengthen your case

3.     The completion of your UK Citizenship application

4.     Submission of your UK Citizenship application

5.     Contact you with the confirmation of your UK Citizenship application

Once you are in the UK:

·         If you gain UK Citizenship you will have unrestricted entry to the UK

·         You will be free to work within the UK with no restrictions

·         You will receive a British passport and enjoy the same benefits as the British.
