Customer Question
I have applied for British...
I have applied for British citizenship in October 2015 my mother is a British citizen residing as a landed immigrant in Canada. I have done the bio metrics for my application in December 2015 and have not heard anything from the UK since then. Once the application is approved I would like to move to the UK and work and settle there. Do I need to apply for a British passport once the citizenship is approved? Do I need to obtain a national security number on my own? Must I wait for the approval before doing these things? Must I wait for the approval before seeking employment in the UK? I should receive the approval by the end of March 2016 but I am not sure if there are other things I need to do that I could be doing in the meantime. Thank you for your assistance with my questions.
