British Citizenship

Guidelines for British Citizenship

Obtaining British citizenship can be achieved through birth or by applying for naturalisation if you are 18 years or older. To qualify for British nationality, you must demonstrate that you have held Indefinite Leave to Remain or EU Settled Status in the UK for a minimum of three years, and that you have maintained a clean record in accordance with UK law, including immigration regulations.

Upon the approval of your application for permanent residence status, you will enjoy the privilege of residing, working, and studying in the UK on a permanent basis, free from immigration constraints. This status will also permit you to travel and spend time abroad without the concern of jeopardizing your acquired standing.

For a more comprehensive understanding of attaining settled status in the UK, please don’t hesitate to reach out to our team of skilled immigration lawyers.

 Requirements:

Pursuant to the British Nationality Act, individuals seeking Naturalisation must satisfy the subsequent eligibility criteria:

  1. Age: Applicants must be 18 years or older.

  2. Continuous Residence: A minimum of 5 years of uninterrupted residence in the UK is required, with no more than 450 days spent outside the country during this period.

  3. Indefinite Leave to Remain (ILR): Applicants must have held ILR status in the UK for a minimum of 12 months.

  4. English Language Proficiency: Fulfill the B1 CEFR level English language requirements, unless exempt.

  5. Life in the UK Test: Successful completion of the Life in the UK Test, which assesses familiarity with British customs, traditions, and culture.

  6. Adherence to Immigration Rules: No violations of UK immigration rules should be present in the applicant’s history.

  7. Good Character: Displaying “good character” is crucial. This entails an absence of significant or recent criminal records, encompassing potential overseas offences and UK immigration-related matters. Contributions to society are also taken into consideration.

Should you require further insights into achieving British citizenship, our team of proficient immigration lawyers is readily available to assist.

Difference between British Citizenship and Settlement

ILR (Indefinite Leave to Remain) and British Nationality: Distinct Statuses with Similar Benefits

Both ILR (including Permanent Residence and EU Settled Status) and British nationality confer upon you the privilege to reside, work, and study in the UK without being subject to immigration controls. Despite sharing these advantages, they remain separate statuses.

Indefinite Leave to Remain (ILR)

After maintaining continuous residence in the UK for five years, you can apply for ILR. This status designates you as a British settled individual, granting you the right to permanently reside in the UK. Additionally, you can access public funds, reunite with family members, and travel in and out of the country without necessitating a visa.

Acquiring ILR is an obligatory step preceding naturalisation as a UK citizen. However, it’s crucial to bear in mind that staying outside the UK for over two years can lead to a loss of your ILR status.

British Citizenship

Attaining British nationality bestows comprehensive rights and responsibilities. This includes the privilege to participate in parliamentary and local elections, secure a British passport, and most notably, travel abroad for extended periods without the concern of forfeiting your status.

If you seek more detailed information about either status, our proficient team of immigration lawyers is available to provide guidance.

When can I apply for my British Citizenship after my Indefinite Leave to Remain/ Settlement

Applying for British Citizenship after Indefinite Leave to Remain

In general, you become eligible to apply for British citizenship once you have held Indefinite Leave to Remain in the UK for a minimum of 12 months. This criterion also applies to individuals with Indefinite Leave to Enter the UK and to EU/EEA citizens who have held EU settled status for a specified duration.

However, if you are married to a British citizen, you have the option to apply for Naturalisation immediately upon receiving Indefinite Leave to Remain in the UK.

Throughout the 12-month qualifying period, it is important not to exceed 90 days outside of the UK. You might be required to furnish information about any absences before submitting your application.

Should you hold Indefinite Leave to Remain but spend more than two years abroad, your status will be revoked. Consequently, you will not be eligible for British nationality until you have accumulated additional qualifying time within the UK.

For EU citizens with settled status, spending over five years abroad will result in the loss of your right to settle in the UK. To reclaim this status, a new application must be submitted.

For further clarification on your specific circumstances or to initiate the application process, our team of expert immigration lawyers is at your service

Skilled or Temporary Workers

The Skilled Worker visa has taken over the role of the Tier 2 (General) work visa. This visa category permits qualifying candidates to reside in the UK for employment in an eligible role with an approved sponsor or employer.

Individuals who are either from the EU, Switzerland, Norway, Iceland, or Liechtenstein, and have established residence in the UK prior to January 1st, 2021, are eligible to apply for the free EU Settlement Scheme. This status negates the need for a work visa when seeking employment in the UK. Notably, Irish citizens are exempt from both the requirement to apply for the EU Settlement Scheme and the need for a visa for working in the UK.

Job Offer Requirements

  1. Job Eligibility: The offered job must be eligible for the Skilled Worker Visa, requiring a skill level of at least RQF level 3 (comparable to A-levels) under the new Skilled Worker Visa route.

  2. Salary Requirement: Your compensation should meet the minimum salary or “going rate” relevant to the nature of the work. The minimum salary is £25,600 per year at least.

  3. Approved Employer: Your prospective employer must be sanctioned by the Home Office and possess a valid Certificate of Sponsorship.

  4. Occupation Code: An occupation code must be assigned to your role. If you’ve secured a job offer, you should obtain this code from your employer.

  5. Genuine Vacancy: You must substantiate that your sponsored role is authentic and not created merely to facilitate your Skilled Worker visa application. The Home Office will scrutinize the legitimacy of the job, and any suspicion of a sham will lead to the rejection of your application.

Meeting these prerequisites ensures that your job offer aligns with the requisites for obtaining a Skilled Worker Visa.

Requirements:

To be eligible for a Skilled Worker Visa, securing sponsorship from a UK-based employer is a necessity. Additionally, you must satisfy the ensuing eligibility prerequisites:

  1. Age: You must be 18 years or older.

  2. Certificate of Sponsorship (CoS): Possession of a valid CoS pertinent to the designated job is essential.

  3. Genuine Job Vacancy: Your offered employment must represent a legitimate vacancy.

  4. Appropriate Job Level: Your role must correspond to an appropriate skill level.

  5. Salary Requirement: The salary you will receive must meet or exceed both the general salary threshold and the “going rate” applicable to your occupation.

  6. Immigration Skills Charge: Your sponsor is required to fulfill the stipulated Immigration Skills Charge.

  7. English Proficiency: Demonstrating English proficiency at a minimum of CEFR Level B1 is mandatory.

  8. Financial Self-sustainability: You need to demonstrate the ability to support yourself and your family financially without reliance on public funds.

  9. Criminal Record Certificate: Providing a valid criminal record certificate is necessary.

  10. Tuberculosis (TB) Certificate: If required, submission of a valid TB certificate is obligatory.

  11. Genuineness Requirement: Fulfilling the specific genuineness requirement is crucial. This entails confirming your commitment to solely undertaking the proposed role and refraining from engaging in additional employment during your stay in the UK.

English Language Requirement for Skilled Worker Visa

As a prerequisite for the Skilled Worker Visa, you are required to exhibit proficiency in English. This proficiency should be at least at level B1 (intermediate). You can fulfill this criterion by:

  1. Nationality from Majority English-speaking Country: Being a citizen of a country where English is predominantly spoken.

  2. Secure English Language Test: Successfully passing a Secure English Language Test recognized by the UK government.

  3. English Qualifications from School: Attaining a GCSE/A Level or Scottish Highers qualification in English while studying in a UK school.

  4. English-taught Degree: Possessing a degree that was taught in English.

  5. Previous Application: Meeting the English language requirement in any previous entry clearance application.

Adhering to these options ensures that your English proficiency meets the stipulated criteria for a Skilled Worker Visa application.

Financial Requirements for Skilled Worker Visa

Under the Skilled Worker Visa category, the general salary threshold stands at £25,600 per annum. This implies that your salary should either match or exceed this amount, as well as encompass 100% of the going rate for your specific occupation – opting for the higher of the two. The calculation will be based on your guaranteed basic gross pay.

However, certain groups of workers might be eligible for lower remuneration under specific conditions. This is feasible if they accrue supplementary “tradable points” for other attributes, such as:

  • Possession of a pertinent PhD qualification or a qualification in a relevant STEM subject.
  • Acceptance of a job offer categorized under the shortage occupation list.
  • Applicants designated as new entrants to the labor market.
  • Individuals applying for positions classified as health or education occupations.

In addition to meeting the prescribed minimum salary threshold, additional financial requisites must also be satisfied. You are required to maintain a minimum of £1,270 in cash funds, earmarked for your sustenance during your stay in the UK. These funds should be consistently held in your bank account for a consecutive span of 28 days preceding your application.

Eligibility for a Family Visa in the UK

If you are not a UK national and have intentions to reside and work in the UK for an extended duration, you will need to undergo a UK Visa application.

There exist various visa categories catering to different circumstances. A Family Visa becomes essential if you aim to unite with family members in the UK for a period surpassing 6 months.

If you currently reside outside the UK, you can seek a Family Visa to join your spouse, fiancé(e), partner, child, parent, or a relative who will be your long-term caregiver.

There are also alternative routes that render you eligible for a Family Visa. You can apply based on the following grounds:

  1. Your relationship concluded due to divorce or your partner’s recent demise.
  2. Applying as the parent of a British or settled child, or a child who has spent 7 years or more in the UK.
  3. Application under the Ukrainian family member scheme.
  4. Applying to settle in the UK or extend your existing family visa.

Furthermore, you can determine if a UK-based family member is qualified to sponsor your visa application. The eligibility criteria for a Family Visa encompass various circumstances and pathways that facilitate family reunification within the UK.

Outlined below are the distinct types of UK Family Visas accessible to non-UK nationals:

  1. Spouse Visa: For individuals married to a British citizen or someone with ILR or settled status.

  2. Partner Visa: Designed for unmarried partners or those in a same-sex relationship with a British citizen or an individual with ILR or settled status.

  3. Fiancé(e) Visa: Applicable for those intending to marry a British citizen or a person with ILR or settled status.

  4. Parent Visa: For parents seeking to join their child who holds British citizenship, ILR, or settled status.

  5. Child Visa: Intended for children whose parent(s) are British citizens, have ILR, or settled status.

  6. Adult Dependent Relative Visa: For elderly dependent relatives of a person in the UK with British citizenship, ILR, or settled status.

The specific type of Family Visa you require depends on your unique relationship with a settled individual in the UK. Each category is tailored to address different familial circumstances, ensuring family unity within the UK.

Spouse Visa Details

Under the UK Family Visa category, partners and spouses are eligible to remain in the UK for a duration of up to 2.5 years. Subsequently, an extension can be sought, extending the total stay to 5 years.

After residing in the UK for more than five years, you become eligible to apply for indefinite leave to remain.

To apply for a Family Visa as a partner or spouse, you must meet the following criteria:

  1. Age Requirement: Both you and your partner must be above 18 years old.

  2. Genuine Relationship: Your relationship must be authentic and sincere.

  3. Intent to Reside: You should have the intention to reside in the UK for at least 2.5 years.

For those applying for a UK Family Visa as a fiancée, your stay duration will be limited to 6 months. During this time, marriage to your fiancé(e) is mandatory to meet the visa requirements; otherwise, you risk deportation.

It is possible to include dependent children in your spouse or fiancé(e) visa application.

Meeting the financial requisites is also necessary for eligibility. For a single applicant, the income threshold is set at £18,600, which increases by £3,800 for a child. Additional children add £2,400 each.

In terms of language requirements, eligibility for a Family Visa in the UK can be met by:

  1. Passing an approved language test.
  2. Holding a qualification from an English-speaking course.
  3. Hailing from a national or majority English-speaking country.

These language criteria do not apply to individuals aged 65 or older during their Family Visa application or those with mental or physical disabilities that prevent them from fulfilling this requirement.

Child Dependent Visa Overview

Children who are non-UK nationals residing abroad can apply for a UK Family Visa either alongside their parent’s application or as an individual application.

To be eligible for a Family Visa, the child must be under 18 years of age at the time of application. Additionally, the child must continue to be dependent and not have established an independent family unit.

For children to accompany a parent or carer to live in the UK, the parent or carer must meet the financial eligibility criteria.

Much like spouse visa applications, children who hold a Child Dependent Visa become eligible to apply for British naturalization after residing in the UK for five years subsequent to the expiration of the Family Visa.

UK Ancestry Visa: An Overview

The UK Ancestry Visa stands as a distinctive category within the family of visas.

Should your grandparents be native to the UK, and you originate from a Commonwealth country, you might qualify for a UK Ancestry Visa spanning a period of five years.

This visa permits you to engage in work, reside, and pursue studies within the UK. Upon the culmination of the five-year duration, you become eligible to apply for settled status.

Adult Dependent Visa: An Overview

For individuals above the age of 18 aspiring to reside and work in the UK under a Family Visa, eligibility for an Adult Dependent Visa may be within reach. This visa category is tailored for those seeking entry to the UK as parents, grandparents, or adult children of a British Citizen.

An Adult Dependent Visa can be sought under exceptional circumstances. It caters to individuals necessitating long-term care, which can be provided by their UK-based relative.

Unlike most other Family Visa types, the Adult Dependent Visa permits indefinite stay in the UK, contingent upon the UK-based relative holding British Citizenship, settled status, refugee status, or humanitarian protection in the UK.

This visa is reserved for specific situations and is notably challenging to secure. To gain acceptance, the following criteria must be met:

  1. Comprehensive Evidence: A substantial body of evidence should demonstrate the absence of sufficient care in your country of origin for an Adult Dependent Family Visa.

  2. Age Requirement: You must be above 18 years of age.

  3. Relationship Criterion: You must have a direct familial relationship with an individual possessing British Citizenship or settled status in the UK.

The Adult Dependent Visa caters to unique and exceptional circumstances where applicants rely on long-term care from their UK-based relatives. Meeting the stringent requirements ensures eligibility for this distinctive Family Visa category.

Furthermore, we extend specialized guidance for applicants below the age of 18 who have secured an acceptance letter from a recognized British educational institution and consequently need to pursue a Child Student Visa application.

In the event of a successful application, if you intend to bring your family along to the UK, we are equipped to assist with all requisite documentation necessary to support your dependents.
