British Citizenship Applications

British Citizenship Applications

Although there are many forms of British Nationality, British Citizenship is the only one that allows you to live and work in the UK without a visa.

The initial criteria for citizenship is:

  • You must be at least 18 years old
  • You must have been a resident in Britain for at least three years
  • You must have held (ILR) and be married to a UK citizen
  • You must 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
  • You must be able to speak English

The application can be stressful and our Immigration specialists can advise you on the most appropriate type of application for your individual circumstances and have the insight to make the application process as smooth as possible.

Costs

We appreciate that worry about costs can be the biggest barrier to getting professional help – but don’t let it stop you. We offer a competitively priced service for all private immigration matters including a range of fixed fee options.

The fixed fee services are designed to make Immigration advice accessible and affordable and to give peace of mind that you will know from the outset the total costs. For information on these fixed fees please see here.

Flexible Appointments

Our Immigration specialists understand it’s not always possible to attend our offices, that’s why our team offer appointments via SKYPE and via telephone, as well as face to face.
