Step 3: (the 6th year) Apply for Citizenship


You’ll be able to apply for citizenship once you’ve been settled in the UK for 12 months. You’ll need to pay a fee to apply for citizenship.

You must also:


  • be over 18

  • prove you were in the UK exactly 5 years before the day the Home Office receives your application

  • prove your knowledge of English, Welsh or Scottish Gaelic

  • have passed the life in the UK test

  • intend to continue living in the UK

  • be of good character - read the naturalisation guidance


You should not have:


  • spent more than 450 days outside the UK during the 5 years before your application

  • spent more than 90 days outside the UK in the last 12 months

  • broken any UK immigration laws (for example living illegally in the UK)


You may have lost your indefinite leave to remain or enter if you’ve been away from the UK for:


  • more than 2 years at any time since you got it (you’ll need to apply for a Returning Resident visa)

  • more than 5 years if you have settled status

  • more than 4 years if you are a Swiss citizen, or the family member of a Swiss citizen, and you have settled status


It costs £1,330 to apply. (2020-10-29)
