Successful application for a British citizenship


Mrs T is had been living in the UK for the last 11 years. She had been granted settlement in the UK in 2013, on the basis of completing the required period of residence in the UK as the spouse of a British citizen.

Mrs T approached us to assist her with her application to naturalise as a British citizen, on the basis of her marriage with her British husband.

How we helped

We advised Mrs T that as she was married with a British citizen, her application to naturalise as a British citizen would fall under Section 6(2) of the British Nationality Act 1981. We advised Mrs T that she would need to provide a copy of her husband’s current British passport or naturalisation/registration certificate showing that he is a British citizen, as well as the marriage certificate or civil partnership certificate. 

During our consultation with Mrs T, we advised her of the various requirements for an application to succeed under Section 6(2) of the British Nationality Act 1981. In particular, we assessed Mrs T’s absences from the UK in the 3 years preceding the date of application, to ensure that she satisfied the residence requirements, i.e., her absences from U.K. does not exceed the following:

  • 270 days in the last 3 years, and
  • 90 days in the last 12 months.

We also advised Mrs T that there is a further residence requirement whereby she must have been physically in the UK on the date 3 years prior to the date of your application.

We also advised Mrs T that since she is a national of Australia, pursuant to Appendix B: English Language, she is exempt from meeting the English language requirement.

We helped Mrs T to collect all the documents required, complete the form, book an appointment for her biometrics and upload all the documents prior to her biometric enrolment appointment.
