The Secretary of State may exercise discretion in certain circumstances, although key requirements such as initial residency in the UK and good character cannot be waived.

EEA nationals and their family members may apply for British Citizenship, provided they meet Settled Status requirements and demonstrate 12 months of settled status or permanent residence.

Individuals falling under specific categories, such as British Overseas Territories Citizens, British National (Overseas), and others, may explore alternative routes to British citizenship through registration.

Applicants require two referees, including a British citizen, and must cover an application fee of £1,330, plus additional costs for citizenship ceremonies. Planning ahead and selecting appropriate referees are crucial steps.

Applications may take up to 6 months for processing, with decisions often received within 3 months. Applicants can travel outside the UK during processing, adhering to specific guidelines.

Successful applicants must attend a citizenship ceremony to receive their certificate of naturalisation. Subsequently, they may apply for a British passport.

Kash Legal Services is one of the most successful legal services in United Kingdom and here is the reason 50 days ago I applied visa application for my wife.it took short time to get the answer from the British embassy in Egypt successfully less than two months I myself couldn’t believe that because I been told that it will take about three to six months to get the answer so that means Kash legal service did very good job and they are very professionals to minimise the time from six months to fifty days I recommend the service to everybody that I know thank you very much

I couldn’t be more happier👌🏻 Excellent communication with the client. I had a problem with my student finance application and asked Kash legal services for help and I don’t regret it at all. The solicitor sorted my issue out within 2 days and without any of my input completed every bit in the form! 5 stars all the way.
