Naturalisation

British Citizenship under the British Nationality Law

Apply for Naturalisation to become a British Citizen

If you are over 18 and have obtained Indefinite Leave to Remain or Permanent Residence/Settled Status in the UK, you may be eligible to apply for British Citizenship through Naturalisation and become a British Citizen. 

If you are married to a British Citizen then you can apply for Naturalisation as soon as you have ILR, however you will have to wait for 12 months before you can apply for Naturalisation if you are not married to a British Citizen.

You will need to make sure you have resided in the UK for a minimum of 3 years if you are married to a British Citizen otherwise 5 years when applying for Naturalisation.

There are of course different ways to apply for citizenship depending on circumstances and we can advise you correctly in all circumstances ensuring you do not waste your money or time.

Requirements for Naturalisation

It is important to complete the application form correctly and provide the Home Office the correct fee and supporting documents. This is to allow the processing of your application to be quick and smooth. Some of the requirements are listed below and may vary depending on your circumstances:

  • Pass the Life in the UK Test, (if you did not submit this at the Indefinite Leave to Remain (ILR) stage)
  • Pass an English Test at minimum of B1 Level (if you did not submit this at the ILR stage) 
  • Confirm you have not been out of the UK for more than 270 days or 450 days over the last 3 or 5 years respectively, depending on if you are married or not married to a British Citizen
  • Confirm you intend to live in the UK permanently
  • Meet the Good character requirement
  • Provide 2 Referees 

The exact requirements will depend on your individual circumstances and we will be able to advise you on these once you instruct us as your Immigration Lawyer.

    I've visited GSN for my wife's VISA renewal and to be honest her application was really complicated one, but thanks to Rahila and her team were helpful & lifted the weight from my shoulder. Thank you again.

    Thank you so much to Rahila and Shah for all your hard work. The process in getting a UK residents visa was very well executed. There communication was excellent and they were even flexible enough to take calls at 9pm! I highly recommend GSN and have recommended them to my friends in need of there services. No more long distance or being separated 5000 miles away from my family. Thank you GSN for bringing families together. xx

    This outfit is first class - I would even say 'Gold Standard'. They are not cheap but are GREAT value for money because they CARE. Rahila is supported by a very bright and helpful guy 'Shah' who is ALWAYS available. Never do I find 'this is the O2 answering service' or 'your call is important to us'. There is ALWAYS someone of flesh and blood and HUMANITY at the other end of the line.

    Trying to do Visas ONLINE is like trying to get a job ONLINE. A route to madness. Give this team a chance. They'll tell it like it is. And they will get you there!

    GSN team assisted me in applying spouse visa from outside uk.
    pleased with there service and level of support i received. had a successful result on the application. Initially, I enquired to most of the solicitors around Harrow-On-The-Hill station. Unlike others, GSN team listened to my situation and gave me confidence by clarifying and providing a clear legal advise.
    The proactive GSN team ensured to submit the application from the eyes of ukvi case worker which reduces the hurdles for immigration team, and increases turn-around time of the application decision. I strongly recommend to others, and support small and local business.

    Excellent and speedy service from Ms X Liang GSN immigration Ltd it was the best decision ever. I needed a spouse’s visa for my wife, which can be a lengthy process which takes a lot of time and effort. I am so happy that I decided to go with GSN Immigration Ltd, thanks to Ms X Liang’s attention to detail and in-deep scrutiny in checking the documentation provided, the process was very easy and straightforward. The communication was clear and we were helped to understand each stage of process. In the end, a swift decision was made in favour of my wife’s Spouse visa. I will certainly recommend and use their professional services again in the future.
