Citizenship by Descent

Recommended Posts

My daughter is awaiting Citizenship by Descent, applied for in the UK.  The 90% processing time, currently 8 months, is up in a few days.  She hasn't had any communication.  Is she now entitled to phone the contact centre?  The Global centre is now an Australian number.  Is it no longer possible to speak to someone at Australian House.  Their previous number no longer works.

Is anyone else still waiting and in a similar position?  It's concerning not receiving any updates.

I need to do this for my youngest. When I did it for my eldest two I just walked into the centre in Perth and filled in the forms. Can I do that again? I'm UK based but will be visiting when covid is finished, probably with my youngest.


Nearly there! Don't drop the ball now guys! Vaccines are weeks away. Stay safe!

Thanks, is this permanent or just since Covid?

Permanent... cost saving presumably.

OK, I'll have to sort out a cheap calling method.

Check your mobile phone contract. I use mine (ALDI) to call UK mobiles from and numbers from Aus and it just uses my call minutes (at a higher rate) and no extra charges.


So many wineries ......so little time :yes:
