Customer Question

I am from the Phillipines. In the Uk for 15 years. I have a work visa. I recently applied for British citizenship. After several interviews and paying thousands of pounds for bonds, I was told that my application was successful and that the paper work was complete and that the ceremony would take place in a few weeks. I have in the past week now received letters to say that I am required to leave the country. I think this is a mistake and that wires have been crossed etc etc. Is it a regular occurrence that after citizenship is awarded that on occasions decisions can be reversed?

Sorry for the delay in replying.

Did the letters which you have received telling you to leave the UK give reasons for why you were required to leave the UK?

I will be able to answer after you reply.
