Hi, you can only naturalise as a British citizen after you secure your settled status and having held the settled status for 12 months. So your first hurdle is to apply for your settled status under the settled status scheme unless you already had the permanent residence document as EEA national and you have held it for 12 months. I hope this is useful to you and I would be grateful for your rating at your earliest convenience. All the best
Not under the settled status scheme. Under the regime that ended at the end of March you needed to have worked or to have held enhanced health insurance as a full time student.
Nobody qualifies for citizenship without having held either the permanent residence document or the settled status confirmation for 12 months. If you do not have either of these then you have to apply for settled status, wait 12 months and then apply for citizenship.I hope that has clarified it for you. If it will help I can speak to you on the JA calls service.
Good day your question has been forwarded to me to see if I may be of assistance. Kindly let me know whether you are still in need of help?
My colleague was correct in her answer to you. Perhaps it was unclear.
There is currently no requirement for you to have worked in the UK in order to apply for your permanent residency. It is enough for you to have been in the UK as a student for the five years. What you are now required to do eventhough you have not been in the UK for five years is to apply for what is called pre-settled status. All that is required is for you to demonstrate that you have resided in the UK>. When you apply, you’ll need proof of:
At the five year mark you would then apply to change from pre-settled to settled status.
