New ebook now available: Naturalising as a British citizen

Our new ebook guide Naturalising as a British citizen is now available for purchase for £9.99 (free for Free Movement members).

For most people, an application for naturalisation is something they can complete on their own. This ebook helps individual applicants to do just that. In 2016 just shy of 150,000 foreign nationals naturalised as British citizens.

But 8% of applications were rejected, the majority because of failure to meet the “good character” and residence requirements. As the cost of an unsuccessful application is almost £1,300 – this processing fee is retained by the Home Office regardless of the outcome – £9.99 is a worthwhile investment for peace of mind.

This comprehensive but accessible ebook guides applicants for naturalisation though the process successfully, helping them to avoid potential pitfalls.

We explain what the legal requirements are, which rules are flexible and which rules are mandatory, and cover residence requirements, permitted absences from the UK, breach of immigration laws and good character issues, all in depth.

Examples and case studies are used throughout to illustrate complex points.

You can download the first few pages for free (click here), including the contents pages.

The full ebook can be downloaded from our online shop, which contains a growing range of ebooks and do-it-yourself guides on immigration and asylum.
