Hello, What happens with AN application if the applicant doesn't meet the residency requirement due to spending a lot of time abroad in second homes?

Areas of Expertise: 

Public Answer: 

Thank you for your enquiry.

We will need to assess whether your absences will be overlooked by the Home Office and this will depend on the reasons you give for your absences. Please note at this stage, you will be asking the Home Office to exercise discretion in your application in light of your absences. If you chose to stay abroad, it is unlikely that you will qualify for naturalisation

We will need additional information to asses this. Someone will be in touch with you shortly to see how we can help you further.

Please note, this answer cannot be taken as a legal advice until we have your full instructions. The answer provided above is for information purposes only, if you would like to proceed to full legal advice and consultation with our immigration solicitors, please let us know your availability for an appointment by contacting us on 0207 936 9960 or through our contact form

We look forward to hearing back from you soon.
