    Default Lost citizenship certificate

    Hi all.. well what can I say, we have misplaced Pams citizenship certificate, and have not yet applied for her uk passport

    We plan to travel to thailand at beginning of April.. was filling out UK passport form this evening and realised we could not find it.

    She does have a valid Thai passport

    Couple of questions - anyone know how long it take to apply for and receive a new one? It seems to cost £198 so you would hope quickly.

    Secondly.. if we do not get one in time, will she be able to get back into the UK? Obviously no longer has Biometric card..

    Only other thing I have is a polling card in Pam's name, which she would not have been able to get if not a UK citizen

    Any advice appreciated

    Hopefully, she will get a replacement back before she travels.

    Cheers Vinny

    We filled out the application for replacement certificate and the associated payment slip for £198 and sent special delivery today

    Managed to speak to someone at UKVI for likely wait.. the lady suggested that it should be a fairly simple process so hopefully would not take 2 long.. she seemed to think within a week of the funds being taken. I also obtained an email address to 'state the urgency' which was nice of her.

    From a quick look on another immigraiton website the current wait times for first UK passport seem to be 7 days (no joke) to just under 4 weeks..

    Fingers crossed..
