In 2019, 160,000 foreign nationals became British citizens. Around 4% of applications were rejected, the majority because of failure to meet the “good character” or residence requirements.

This comprehensive but accessible ebook guides applicants for British citizenship though the naturalisation 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, excess absences, breach of immigration laws and good character issues 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.

Informative and Helpful Details. Thanks

Informative and Helpful details. I was ‘in the process’ of gathering information about retirement and migration to UK. A great starting point for anyone seriously consider in movement.

Excellent compact guide to relevant law

This book is great. It is really useful for those who are going through the process of applying for naturalisation as it is clear and concise yet with enough detail to signpost practitioners to further resources.

A very complete guide

I found this guide very complete, addressing all different aspects required to submit a (hopefully) successful application. All requirements are exploited in detail, including potential weakness to be well considered. Really a "must have".

Naturalisation Guide E-Book

Excellent. I've just started to research applying for British citizenship, this e-book was the first thing I read on the subject. It provides a very good, clear summary, I understand what I need to do now. Strongly recommended and well worth the money!
