The most recent Migration Transparency data published in May 2023 shows that 98.4% of straightforward applications were decided within six months.

It is not always possible to conclude non-straightforward applications for citizenship within the published service standards. The Home Office actively monitors and reviews such cases on a regular basis, to ensure they can be progressed as soon as possible. Where a case is not straightforward, customers are contacted to explain that their application cannot be decided within the six months service standard.
