Hi, thank you for your answer. So, it doesn't matter that I came in May 2007 and the self-employment doesn't count either? Why? I have a proof of my stay here, my bank account statements with money on them and also my tenancy agreement. I also have payslips for all the jobs I've been doing since August 2007, they don't count either? The blue residence registration certificate doesn't count?
Thank you for your reply.
The time that you spent in self employment will count towards the residency period, any time you spend working in the UK as a work you will need to have been registered under the WRS scheme.
Therefore if you were self employed in May 2007 , provided that you had evidence of this, you are able to apply for naturalisation. If you did switch from being self-employed to employed without being registered under the WRS scheme this period will not count.
I apologise for any confusing.
Thank you for your answer. So, to make perfectly sure, I have the Residence Registration Certificate, and in this case the date of coming will count, not the date of issuing the certificate? Thanks again.
