I’m a British citizen now…timeline
« on: January 11, 2022, 07:04:01 AM »
Well, it’s over…although Lewisham really skimped on the ceremony and I even had to have one of my fellow new citizens take a photo of me and the Queen. No mini flag either or guests :(

Application: 05/10/2021
Biometrics: 07/10/2021 (I paid £200 because I have anxiety and didn’t want to fight for the free/cheap appointments)
Approval email: 13/12/2021
Original ceremony: 20/12/2021 (I had to postpone because Omicron got me three days before)
Ceremony: 10/01/2022

Thanks to everyone who’s provided advice in the past, from before I was applying for the fiancé visa. I’ve already applied to be in the electoral roll and am sending my ID documents for my passport.

Congratulations!  I'm sorry the ceremony was a let down.  Did they give you a gift?  I got a 99p passport wallet off of eBay.  A friend got a gorgeous medal/coin from her council.  I know which one I would have rather!  But, most importantly, my family all has a shared nationality and we can live here without the government deciding if we can or not (any longer).

GO CELEBRATE THIS WEEKEND!!!!!!
