Tip Number 1: Monitoring Your UK Absences
One of the important aspects of naturalising as a British citizen is possessing a detailed record of your absences from the UK. Depending on your residency duration in the UK, you must make sure that your absences do not surpass the specified limits. For Example, if you are showing a five-year residency, your absences should not be more than 450 days. If you’re married to a British national and are demonstrating a three-year residency, the absences should be less than 270 days. In cases of excessive absences, the UK Home Office might still grant naturalisation, but it’s always sensible to consult with immigration experts.
Our Tip Number 2: Selecting the Right Referees
Your naturalisation application requires endorsements from two referees. It’s crucial that these referees fulfill the specified measures. The first referee should be a professional, while the second should be a British passport holder, either a professional or aged 25 or above. They must not be related to you, each other, or be associated with the UK Home Office.
Tip Number 3: Dual Citizenship Considerations
Before going on the naturalisation journey, determine if your current nationality allows dual citizenship. While the UK allows it, not all countries do, and some might even require official permission before you apply for an additional nationality.
