    What are the eligibility requirements for British Citizenship by Marriage?

    British Citizenship by Marriage is the process by which non-EEA spouses of British citizens become naturalised as British citizens. In order for your the British Citizenship by Marriage application to be a success, the following eligibility requirements must first be satisfied.

    • You must have passed to the Life in the UK Test- this is a series of questions pertaining to the culture, customs and history of the UK;
    • You must hold Indefinite Leave to Remain (ILR);
    • You must have been a continuous and lawful resident of the UK for at least three years;
    • You must have demonstrated the ‘Good Character’ requirement throughout your time in the UK- to do this, you must be free from criminal convictions and have always adhered to the UK immigration rules;
    • You must at least 18 years of age;
    • You must demonstrate the required level of English language proficiency.

    Failure to fulfil these requirements could result in the outright rejection of your application. Taking this into account, it is strongly advised that you seek the help of one of our OISC-accredited lawyers. We’re here for you in person, over the phone and via Skype.
