Waiting For Customer
I am afraid you are not yet eligible to apply for a UK passport yet unless you already have in your possession (or can obtain) a document confirming your permanent residence/indefinite leave to remain.
This is because you have not obtained a PR card. The rules were changed about a year ago, so that applicants for naturalisation must hold a PR card if they are EEA nationals if you want to apply for UK citizenship.
So, you must first apply for PR and obtain it before you naturalise, or you van simply apply for permanent residence and simply remain living here with a PR card. Details on how you can apply are on the following page:
IF the home office confirm that you have had PR from a date prior to the date they actually issue the card then you can apply for naturalisation once year has passed since that date.
If the home office do not acknowledge that you held PR prior to the date that they actually issue the card then you will have o wait until 12 months have passed since the issue of the PR card.
When you apply for naturalisation you must ensure that you meet the criteria on the following page:
I am sorry that I could not have better news for you, but it's fairly straight forward to get PR card and then naturalise. I would caution that when apply for PR you have to send off all your original documents (including your passport) and they take generally around 6 months to decide the application so you should only apply when you can put up with being without your passport for 6 months.
My goal is to provide you with a good service. If you feel you have received anything less, please reply back as I am happy to address follow-up issues specifically relating to your question. If you are satisfied then please leave positive feedback using the stars at the top of the page.
Sorry, I drafted my reply in a different program and it unforunately copied unintended parts.
If you do not hold a document confirming "indefinite leave to remain" or "permanent residence". Then the best way forward (whether you want to naturalise as a UK citizen or simply confirm your right to reside permanently in the UK, would be to apply for confirmation of your permanent residence status.
You can apply for permanent residence and simply remain living here with a PR card if you wish. Details on how you can apply are on the following page:
I would caution that when apply for PR you have to send off all your original documents (including your passport) and they take generally around 6 months to decide the application so you should only apply when you can put up with being without your passport for 6 months.
