New Home Office Policy Guidance for British Nationality
October 16, 2017
The Home Office today published a new collection of guidance documents used by the UK Visas and Immigration service when deciding applications for British nationality. These seem to have replaced the Nationality Instructions with, it seems, no guidance on what has been carried over, changed or dropped from the Nationality Instructions:
Section 1: Requirements and considerations common to all types of British nationality
This section contains information on common aspects of nationality policy and processes that apply to the applications for all types of British nationality.
These documents are an essential read for anyone intending to go through this process. Applications concerning British nationality attract exorbitant Home Office fees and some pre-application research may go some way to avoiding the financial hit of a refusal. Some research is required on our part too, the above guidance has been published just prior to our new Naturalisation Guide, which will now need some editing…thanks Home Office!
