  • Hallelujah!!! If I were Superman, bureaucracy would be my kryptonite! This was super painful... But it's all done now... God save the Queen!

  • Become a British citizen

  • UK Visas & Immigration confirmed my application has been received and mentioned it may take up to six months to make a decision

  • Woohoo! This time the Nationality Checking Service told me all the paperwork is complete and is going to be submitted to the Home Office. What a fucking relief! Now I just have to keep my fingers crossed for 6 months whilst I wait for the Home Office to accept my application

  • Rebook appointment with the Nationality Checking Service

  • Fuck! The Nationality Checking Service told me that I didn't have all the paperwork done. I thought I'd end this today but I still need to gather a few more papers to prove I've been working and paying taxes in the UK

  • Complete all paperwork

  • Book appointment with the Nationality Checking Service

  • I finally got the permanent residence document!

  • Still waiting for an answer from UK Visas & Immigration :(

  • Interesting... The £65 fee was withdrawn on 29 June but only today I got an email from UK Visas & Immigration saying "Your application has been received and is being considered. It may take up to six months to make a decision on your case."

  • Apply for a document certifying permanent residence

  • This was brutal! It was the biggest bureaucratic task I've done in my Life. I feel like I finished a dissertation!

  • Either the rules have changed or I missed that I need to get a document certifying permanent residence (https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/apply-for-a-document-certifying-permanent-residence-or-permanent-residence-card-form-eea-pr). I've pushed back my next steps, since I need to get this first

  • Life in the UK exam

  • I did it! :)

  • Exam postponed to the 11th (the 3rd will be a busy day at work)

  • Book Life in the UK exam

  • After dragging reading the handbook for ages, I'm finally prepared. The most convenient available date is 3rd March. I'll keep doing online practice exams until then

  • Attend the English exam

  • Provisional result: passed with A in topic and A in conversation :)

  • OK, let's do this!

  • Book the English exam
