Form AN Application for naturalisation as a British citizen

February 2009

Naturalising as a British citizen in the future What are the proposed changes? On 20 February 2008 the Government published the Green Paper ‘The Path to Citizenship: Next Steps in Reforming the Immigration System‘. In this document we outlined our proposals for changing the way that someone can become a British citizen or remain here as a permanent resident. These proposals are collectively called ‘Earned citizenship’. These proposals will, if agreed by Parliament, lead to change late in 2009. Thereafter, migrants will be expected to pass through 3 key stages and demonstrate certain requirements in order to progress between these. Our aim is to make the journey clearer, simpler and easier for migrants and the public to understand. The three stages are set out below: 1. Temporary residence 2. Probationary citizenship 3. British citizenship/permanent residence Until then existing arrangements for naturalisation will continue.

Application for naturalisation as a British citizen
IMPORTANT: Before completing this form, you should read the accompanying Guide. Fill in those parts of the form that apply to your application (see pages 12 - 25 in the guide) and cross out all other parts. If there is not enough space for your answer, use page 14 to provide additional information. If you want help to complete your application form, you may wish to contact a competent adviser, for example a solicitor or agent registered with the Office of the Immigration Services Commissioner see page 14 of the guide which accompanies this form for details. Or you may wish to use the Nationality Checking Service operated by a number of local authorities. Your Register Office will advise if one is operated in your area. We recommend that you keep a copy of this application. NOTE: Some of the information you provide on this form will be stored on a computer which is registered under the Data Protection Act. Please ensure that you read the guide which accompanies this form. You should ensure that you understand the criteria for naturalisation before submitting your application. Full fees cannot be returned for applications that fail. Please write in BLOCK CAPITALS using black or blue-black ink. Please enter all dates as dd-mm-yyyy, e.g. 29/04/2002 Please note that each individual applying for naturalisation must complete a separate application form. Therefore husbands, wives and civil partners wishing to naturalise, must complete separate forms. For a “joint” application attracting a single fee the applications for a married or civil partnership couple must be submitted together. Family applications should include separate forms for each child, either an AN Form where the child is now an adult (aged 18 or over) or an MN1 Form for a minor (under the age of 18). WE DO NOT NEED APPLICATIONS FOR ADULTS OR MINORS WHO ARE ALREADY BRITISH. If you are acting as responsible adult for someone who is not of sound mind and able to make and understand their own application (see page 7 of the guide), you must take full responsibility for the accuracy of the information provided and sign the declaration on behalf of the applicant. This includes liability in law. 3
