hello, As stated in my question, the home office have already issued his naturalisation certificate with the requested spelling, which is slightly different to the spelling in his current passport.
If the Greek passport office will not agree to change the spelling, what can we do?
Could he apply for a British passport with the same spelling as his Greek passport if his naturalisation certificate is different?
Our marriage certificate uses Arhimandritis, as does my British passport and our daughter's passport. It's only the Greek passport which uses the different spelling so we requested the certificate to be issued with the same spelling as the rest of the family. We were not made aware at the time of application that there would be a problem with him applying for a British passport.
Given that this was the main reason he applied for UK citizenship, we now feel at a loss as to how to proceed.
Would the home office change the spelling at this stage to be the same as his passport? It would mean his surname being slightly different to rest of the family but if it means he can apply for his passport then fair enough?
sorry, I'm not getting anywhere here, I will try other sources of information.
I will not be happy to pay for your responses on this occasion.
Thanks but I think Ill leave for now and explore other avenues.
Can you tell me why I have been charged for the above question which was left unanswered?! I actually made it clear on one of my responses that I was not happy to pay. I've just seen my back statement which confirms I've been charged £26.
I expect a full refund.
