Good afternoon, I am Russian Federation citizen.

Customer Question

Good afternoon, I am Russian Federation citizen. I moved in the UK in November 2009 as a family member (wife) of EEA citizen (Estonian). In June 2010 I received Permanent Residence Card valid until June 2015. Permanent Residence is sticked into my Russian Passport. In November 2011 our relationship with my Estonian husband ended up and we divorced. In January 2012 I married to British Citizen, we have been married for 2,5 years now and we've got 2 children. I still live in the UK under my Permanent Residence Card. My question - Can I apply for British Citizenship via naturalisation in January 2015 (begin married to the UK citizen for 3 years) or should I wait until June 2015 when my current Residence will be expired and when apply on citizenship/naturalisation? Sincerely, ***** *****

Hi Anne
Thanks for your question.
Are you certain that you received "permanent residence" and not simply a "residence card" as the non-eea spouse of an EEA national?
Kind regards
