1. Dear Eliza, firstly, you can leave the Uk for up to 90 days each year and still qualify for citizenship. The idea is that you should spend most of your time in the UK, not all your time. So long as you spend more than 275 days each year in the UK for five years, you can qualify for citizenship. Secondly, you should also obtain a residence card to prove you have been living in the UK for the necessary five years. This makes the process much easier when it comes to applying for citizenship. Whilst this is not a necessary prerequisite, it greatly helps. Finally, you should purchase medical health insurance if you are not working and paying National Insurance contributions. This is because you have to be able to provide your own medical care if you wish to obtain citizenship.
