British Nationality

Question for Home Office

UIN 53472, tabled on 2 June 2020

To ask the Secretary of State for the Home Department, whether settled status is admissible as evidence of lawful residence in the UK for the purpose of making an application for British citizenship.

Answered on

Settled status is a grant of Indefinite Leave to Remain. It can therefore be used to demonstrate the date on which an applicant became free from immigration time restrictions under the Immigration Rules.

Additional evidence may be required to demonstrate an individual meets the statutory requirements for naturalisation.
