I am a Greek citizen. I am married to a British man by a civil

Resolved Question:

I am a Greek citizen. I am married to a British man by a civil ceremony in Scotland. I have lived and worked in Britain since 2005. I want to take out dual citizenship. I know that both Greece and Britain allow this, but I do not know what to do to start the process.

Hello,
You need to apply for naturalisation as a British Citizen using form AN. You need to have an English language qualification and have passed the life in the UK test, if you have done so, you may apply immediately.

Does my marriage to a UK national make any difference to my naturalisation status? Even if I am married, am I still at risk of losing my resident status in the UK when it leaves the EU?

Expert:  UKSolicitorJA replied 2 years ago.
The only difference is that the residency period is shorter if you are married to a UK national I.e. 3 years instead of 5 years, for UK naturalisation.
In your case, it makes no difference as you have been here since 2005.
No risk of losing your status if the UK exits the EU.
All the best
