    When can you apply british citizenship?

    Hello everyone.. Just a question.. I've got my ILR recently last 24 Nov. 2011. I know this might be so advance to ask, but I would like to know.. When will be my qualifying period to apply citizenship? 1 year after? But is it the date that they issue my Settlement visa? or the day you arrive here in the UK? I will really appreciate any reply. Thank you..

    For general requirements of British Citizenship look here:-
    http://www.ukba.homeoffice.gov.uk/britishcitizenship

    For detailed requirements as spouse or partner look here:-
    http://www.ukba.homeoffice.gov.uk/br...rtnerofcitizen

    The Application Form and the Application Guide can be dowmloaded here:-
    http://www.ukba.homeoffice.gov.uk/br...naturalisation

    Generally these are the requirements:-

    you are aged 18 or over; and
    you are of sound mind; and
    you can communicate in English, Welsh or Scottish Gaelic to an acceptable degree; and
    you have sufficient knowledge of life in the United Kingdom; and
    you are of good character; and
    you are the husband, wife or civil partner of a British citizen; and
    you meet the residential requirements; or
    your husband, wife or civil partner is in Crown or designated service outside the United Kingdom.

    General residential requirements

    have been resident in the United Kingdom for at least three years (this is known as the residential qualifying period); and
    have been present in the United Kingdom three years before the date of your application; and
    have not spent more than 270 days outside the United Kingdom during the three-year period; and
    have not spend more than 90 days outside the United Kingdom in the last 12 months of the three-year period; and
    have not been in breach of the immigration rules at any stage during the three-year period

    BTW, you can count residence from the first time you arrive to UK, even if it was with Fiance(e) visa.

    Unless, it changes next April

    Just read it, I guess you can't blame them. The number of immigrants here raise sky high. Oh well, I guess I need to study this test again. Done, driving test, Life in the UK test, so hope this will be the last test!

    It is a waste.

    There are so many clever Filipinas who deserve a chance to use their qualifications, and could probably wipe the floor intelligence and education-wise with some of the home-grown dullards in good jobs here.

    My own step-daughter got 14 GCSE 'O' levels and 4 A-levels after arriving here at 7 years old and not even speaking English....plus another 3 years away in the Phils from 2000-2003.

    I do hope it won't change, or at least not change much.
    But there is a lot of pressure being applied to increase the residence time.

    Fingers crossed eh,

    Yes, Fingers crossed. I bet it's because of the relax checks and high figures shown last 2009. I can't believe it was almost 500,000+++ Immigrants entered in the UK in 2009( Am one of them ) I learned from the newspaper.

    ... guess you seem to be confusing this with the necessity to take the 'Life In the UK Test' [Citzenship Exam] - in which ALL candidates must attain a standard 75% passmark or above - before becoming eligible to apply for Indefinite Leave To Remain.

    the qualifying period is the year after your ilr was granted scottishbride, so if your ilr was granted on the 12/11/2011 you apply on 13/11/2012, that is if you come here on spouse visa that would be your third year and if your on fiancee visa i am not sure though if your 6 months prior to flr is counted ( for the old rule). Hope this helps.

    I came here on spouse visa. Really I can apply after a year I've been granted ILR ( November?)? But I am a bit confuse... Because they said you have to be here 3 years right? I arrived here in UK December 18, 2009. My ILR granted earlier because you can apply 28 days before Dec 18, 2009. So That's why I applied November I counted back 28 days. Are you sure this is not a problem? looking forward to rapid response.

    Oh and one more thing.. Do I need my husband passport? Because it said in the Application, it is either his birth certificate or Passport. I am not sure if he will be home in November.
