yes i am now a Uk citizen and i have my passport since 2005.


Thanks for your reply.

No, the residential qualifying period only applies in respect of the eligibility criteria for indefinite leave to remain. There is no such restriction on the length of time a naturlised UK citizen in the same way that there is no restriction on UK citizens by birth.


Once you are a UK citizen, you are a UK citizen with the same unfettered rights.

Citizenship can be revoked where it can be proved it was obtaining by deception but not be time out of the UK.
