Thanks for your question.
To enable me to answer your question could you please respond to the following:-
I am just worried that by moving abroad and spending all my time there I will be losing the right to come back to the UK to live and work.That is why I intend to apply for citizenship before I move away. Is this the solution? If I become a UK citizen, can I go and live abroad and still come back to UK without any problems?
I don't know what would happen to my status if I don't apply for citizenship, would i still be able to come back in the UK to live and work after a long absence?
I don't know if I made things clearer...
Thank you for your reply.
Just one more thing. One of the requirements of applying for citizenship is that I must intend to continue living in the UK. If I obtain UK citizenship and then move abroad for a few years, will I not be in breach of the citizenship? Will it be ok for me to move out of the country straight after obtaining the citizenship?
