New application form and guidance for naturalisation


22 November 2010

The UK Border Agency has published a new version of Form AN, which is used to apply for naturalisation as a British citizen.

Also, following a review, we have split the existing naturalisation guidance into 2 documents:

  • Guide AN - this simply explains how to complete the form; and
  • Booklet AN - this gives more detail about the requirements for naturalisation and the way that the Secretary of State exercises his discretion.

You should now use the new versions of the form and guidance documents (dated 'September 2010') when applying for naturalisation under section 6 of the British Nationality Act 1981. You can download them from the How do I apply for naturalisation as a British citizen? page.
