    I have two friends who've recently gained British Citizenship. I can't be certain (and I will ask them as soon as I can) but I've fairly sure they both had a decision within about a month.

    Just spoken to my mate and he confirmed it was about four weeks from sending the application to hearing conformation of British Citizenship and a further two/ three weeks to go to the ceremony where you have to swear allegiance to the Queen and receive the certificate.

    A friend of the wife's has had hers confirmed in 3 weeks.

    These are all pleasantly surprising turn around times. Due to previous experiences with UKBA I wouldn't have expected it to be any quicker than about 3-6 months, so less than 2 months from submission to ceremony sounds pretty good to me

    No confirmation letter yet - but called Chelsea Town Hall and they told me the certificate has arrived today.

    Can you book a private ceremony without the number/reference on the letter?

    How does it work?

    Do you get a letter from UKBA then an invite from the council?

    We want a private ceremony anyway.

    We went to NCS on Friday 19th July - our payment went out on the 25th July.

    Still no letters. I assume we hear from the council it was sent too (Chelsea) not at Sutton NCS?

    You should get a letter from the council you nominated on your application form. It will ask you to contact a number to arrange a ceremony.
    Just have to be patient a bit longer PP.

    Yes I believe so Nick. The private ceremony is still organised by the local authority.

    from UKBA
    In special circumstances you can arrange a private ceremony. You should discuss your requirements with your local authority. You may have to pay an additional fee to arrange a private ceremony and it will not usually be attended by a dignitary.

    If you don't hear nothing today get your MP on board.
    Once my MP was on board it took a week to get the answer.

    I thought it was up to 6 months?

    Or is it 3?

    Nick if you search other forums it normally takes 4 - 5 weeks after the money has been taken.

    UKBA give a guide of up to 6 months.

    You could go back to the NCS as there is some after care with them and this should give you a indication if it has been done. The NCS have a direct number.

    I would still get my MP on board as to say the phone number they say call just sends you around in circles and you cannot speak to anyone. It is upto you which course of action to take but it's better than doing nothing and waiting, you never know the UKBA. Could have made a mistake somewhere.
