Thanks for your answer, so if will it still be revoked if ones coming for a short visit every year? Or with in two year time for a short visit. And is there any time limit of staying outside UK once one have a British Citizenship?
You cannot be out of the country for two years or more. You have to break the two year period.
Once you have citizenship this doesn't apply and you can come and go as you please.
