Customer Question


I am on an Ancestry visa on my way to ILR. My question is: once I have ILR if I want to qualify for naturalisation, are the rules still that:

1) must not have been out of the country for more than 450 days in the last five years
2) must not have been travelling for more than 90 days in the last year

I'm asking because I'm wondering if the new rules during the Ancestry five year period (up to 180 days out of country) have had an impact on the rules for qualifying for naturalisation.

Many thanks

Seriously? You're responding in text speak? Good God. I will not be pursuing this question with you either.

I'm sorry, I was using voice recognition software.

Would you like to proceed, or would you prefer a refund?

Kind regards

I would prefer not to proceed. I don't require a refund - I registered for a free trial, which I have now cancelled.
