Citizenship Approved!
« on: October 02, 2023, 02:55:28 PM »
Well, after almost 4 months of waiting, I received my citizenship approval email from the Home Office today!

For those of you tracking Citizenship timelines: I submitted biometrics on June 6 and received approval on October 2. My math says that equals 4 months less 4 days!

I'll let you know how long it takes to get a ceremony slot here in Greenwich, and then how long it takes to get the passport.

Even though I will be back, I just want to say thank you again to all the lovely, talented, and super helpful people on this forum. And a special thank you to the experts who are absolute aces!!!  I quite literally could NOT have done it without this amazing community. Wishing all the best to everyone waiting for approvals as well.

Thanks all! And the ceremony is booked too. I could not believe they had a slot in just a couple of weeks from now.
