    Default British Citizenship

    Hey everyone, thanks for letting me join!

    I've got a question about my wife (Thai) applying to become a British Citizen.

    We got married in the UK in 2011, and have lived here until April 2016. In April 2016 we went traveling for a year and came back to the UK in July 2017 and she obtained Indefinite leave to remain in October 2017. Passed English language test etc.
    If she applies for citizenship now, she was absent for 443 days but it states in the requirements (booklet AN)’ on page 7, this can be up to 450 days. Also prior to her absent, she was living in the UK since 2011. So we've been back for over 220 days.

    Could my wife apply for citizenship now?

    Any help much appreciated

    It also says "spent no more than 90 days outside the UK in the last 12 months" so does that work out too?

    365 - 220 = 145, maybe not

    You have to pass the B1 test but also the life in the uk test. It is quite easy though.
