Permanent residence in the UK, often known as British Naturalization, grants successful Applicants the right to become British citizens. This means individuals would have access to all the rights held by those born within Britain. For many people, this is a life changing opportunity to be able to work and live in their desired country of choice. Not only does this offer many families the right to remain in the same country, but it also offers many new financial opportunities to those who have not had the right to remain permanently.
If you are over 18 years old and have been living in the United Kingdom for the last five years (or three years if you are married to a civil partner of a British citizen) then you may be entitled to apply for UK permanent residence as a British citizen.
In order to make a successful claim, there are a number of requirements which need to be met. It is important to know what requirements you need to meet based on your current Nationality Application. At Bloomsbury Law, we understand the application for permanent residence can be a somewhat overwhelming process. There are many different types of Nationality Applications as well as different ways to make and send the application. Our immigration solicitors appreciate that these applications are costly and want to make sure that your application runs smoothly in order to avoid excessive fees based on unnecessary errors. It is therefore best to seek legal advice as early as possible.
