NANTPERIS NATURALISATION CTTEE

 

The new Nantperis Naturalisation Committee, process and citizenship test for aspiring Nantperis residents is entirely modelled on the one for becoming a British Citizen. In line with updates to the British process, this is intended to place more emphasis on Nantperis history and achievements, and comes into imaginary force this week as part of The Art of the MOOC*.

The Committee and process have been instigated by Nantperis resident incomer, Lindsey Colbourne. She says "This process will allow people who want to move to Nantperis, or who already live here, to find out if they are suitable for citizenship. Although I wrote the test myself, I was delighted to pass it, and I also think I fulfil the criteria.  I now consider myself a Nantperis Citizen, which is nice. Early indications (from neighbours, friends and relations) are that the test will prove challenging to those that didn't write it. However, we are following an established precedent - in line with procedures required for citizenship in Britain. Although all our procedures are not yet in place, our flexible and inclusive approach will mean that all those with positive attitude to key Nantperis wellbeing considerations will be granted citizenship. We are hoping to educate rather than exclude*".

*Please note, none of this is serious!

More about how to become a Nantperis citizen

Following the exact wording of the British Citizenship process, we are instigating different ways to become a Nantperis citizen.

1. The most common is called ‘naturalisation’.

You can apply for Nantperis citizenship by naturalisation if:

                you’re 18 or over

                you’re of good character, eg you don’t have a serious or recent criminal record, and you haven’t tried to deceive the Nantperis Naturalisation Cttee or been involved in immigration offences in the last 10 years

                you’ll continue to live in Nantperis

                you have met the knowledge of Welsh (Welsh qualification at B1, B2, C1 or C2 level) and life in Nantperis requirements (take the quiz/apply to take the test)

                you meet the residency requirement

And you must usually have:

                lived in the Nantperis for at least the 5 years before the date of your application

                spent no more than 450 days outside Nantperis during those 5 years

                spent no more than 90 days outside the Nantperis in the last 12 months

                been granted indefinite leave to stay in the Nantperis (or permanent residence if you’re an EEA national) - this means there’s no specific date that you have to leave

                had indefinite leave to stay in Nantperis for the last 12 months (or permanent residence if you’re an EEA national)

                not broken any immigration laws while in the UK

There are different requirements if your spouse or civil partner is a Nantperis citizen.

You can’t include any time spent in Nantperis when you’re exempt from immigration control (eg as a diplomat or member of visiting armed forces) as part of the 5 years.

Read the full guidance notes and the requirements booklet before applying.

You may be able to apply to become a Nantperis citizen by ‘registration’ in certain circumstances.

2. If you’re married to, or the civil partner of, a Nantperis citizen, you can apply for citizenship if:

                you’re 18 or over

                you’re of sound mind, eg you’re able to think and make decisions for yourself

                you’re of good character, eg you don’t have a serious or recent criminal record

                you have met the knowledge of Welsh (Welsh qualification at B1, B2, C1 or C2 level) and life in Nantperis requirements (take the quiz/apply to take the test)

                you’ve been granted indefinite leave to stay in Nantperis (or permanent residence if you’re an EEA national) - this means there’s no specific date that you have to leave

                you meet the residency requirement

Unless your spouse or civil partner works abroad either for the government or for an organisation closely linked to government, you must usually also have:

                lived in Nantperis for at least the 3 years before your application is received

                spent no more than 270 days outside Nantperis in those 3 years

                spent no more than 90 days outside the Nantperis in the last 12 months

                not broken any immigration laws while in Nantperis

Read the guidance notes and the requirements booklet before applying.

 

 

3. Registering as a Nantperis citizen is usually simpler than becoming naturalised, but you must be eligible.

You may be eligible if:

                you have another form of Nantperis nationality

                you were born before 1 January 1983 to a Nantperis mother

                you were born to a Nantperis father, even if he was not married to your mother

                you were born in Nantperis on or after 1 January 1983

                you’re under 18 and don’t fit into the other categories

                you have a connection with Patagonia or Liverpool

                you’re stateless

As well as belonging to one of these groups there are other eligibility rules for each category.

The rules are different if you’ve previously renounced your Nantperis citizenship.

Registration fees (Punt Nantperis): Each adult £NP913   Each child £NP749 If child becomes 18 during application process £NP80 each child (for citizenship ceremony)

How to pay

You must pay the fee in full when you send in your application.

Use the payment slip.

In most cases you won’t get a refund if your application is refused. Read the guidance notes carefully before applying.

Biometric information

You must also provide their biometric information (fingerprints and a photo). This costs £19.20.

The Nantperis Naturalisation Cttee will tell you when you need to provide your biometrics. Your biometric information is only held until you’ve attended a citizenship ceremony.
