    Hello All,

    We are in the getting information about the naturalisation process state and I have two questions:

    1. I am Romanian and got my settled status in May 2020. My husband is Syrian and got his SS in October 2020. Is it better to apply for UK citizenship together or individually? I am in absolutelly no rush and can wait until October. If I were to apply in May, how would that impact my husband's application just 5 months later (with me having or maybe not having a decision yet)?

    2. Does one's passport need to be valid when applying for naturalisation? If there are strong reasons why one can't have it renewed, can this be explained in a cover letter?

    Many thanks!

    Kindest regards,

    Morning,

    I'm a bit confused here, as you posted this a year ago: Settled Status first few months - UKCEN Citizenship and Residence for European Nationals and their families

    Hello All,

    Thank you so much for this forum and advice.

    I am very confused about my first months in the UK re: the application for the Settled Status. I have pre-settled status from 2019 and have sent my application for settled status 10 days ago, but still haven’t heard anything and now all thoughts are boiling in my brains ?

    I have arrived in the UK on 6th January 2016. I still have the e-ticket email, but do not the boarding pass. I have added the eticket email to the application.
    The post above was made on the 27th of January 2021, stating you moved here in January 2016, so I can't see how you could have settled status since may 2020. Would you be able to clarify the situation here before going further?

      Sorry, I meant 2021.

      I got my settled status in May 2021 and my husband in October 2021 so this year we can apply for naturalization.

      Thank you! ?

          You may want to look here: Family applications and dependents


          ...where we have:

          You can include family members in your application. Once you start your form, you get the option to add spouses, children and siblings to the form.

          However, each individual will be assessed against the statutory requirements in their own right.

          The fees are the same as for individual applications, there are no savings nor discounts for applying together as a family.

          The main advantage of a family application is to have just one UKVCAS appointment for all applicants, as well as being able to upload shared supporting evidence where relevant.

            We have covered that here: Expired passports

            ...where you'll note:
            The form asks whether you have in your possession, a valid passport. If the answer is No, it then asks whether you can provide details of your passport using a copy.

            Click image for larger version  Name:	copyOfPassport.png Views:	1 Size:	344.6 KB ID:	1060
            This screen cannot be used to enter details of expired passports, as it will not accept an expiry date that's not in the future.

            If you have an expired passport, you have to answer No to this question so you can get the following:

            Click image for larger version  Name:	ExpiredPassport.png Views:	1 Size:	277.5 KB ID:	1061

            If you have your expired passport, you need to supply it, even if applying with a valid ID card.

              You may want to refer to the following resources which are the starting point for citizenship applications:If you are an EEA national, you may also want to consider the potential impact of becoming British if you wish to sponsor family members in the future: Impact on family members
