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.
