Changes to knowledge of life requirement for British Citizenship

Visa Bureau is not affiliated with the Australian Government but is an independent UK company. Australian visas are available from the Australian Government at a lower cost or for free when you apply directly. Our comprehensive visa and immigration services include immigration advice from registered migration agents, a 100% success rate, document checking and expedited visa processing.

Commencing tomorrow, the British government will introduce new regulations changing the knowledge of language and life requirements for those applying for naturalisation as a British citizen.

The British Nationality Regulations will specify that all applicants relying on qualifications in English for speakers of other languages (ESOL) must study at an accredited college.

In addition, applicants will need to demonstrate to UK Immigration that after their course they have progressed at least one further level higher than their initial language assessment by a qualified person.

Applicants who have already demonstrated that they meet the knowledge of language and life requirement when they were granted settlement will not be affected by this change.

The UK Visa Bureau is an independent consulting company specialising in helping people lodge UK Visa applications with the British Embassy.
