UK Citizenship for EU nationals


New Member
Hi All,

I have been reading the British Citizenship regulation and the sections concerning CSI as I have a very small gap when I first moved in the UK. I no longer understand if it does apply in my case or not.
  • Will the case officer be verifying the continuous residence 5 years of settled status + 1 year?
  • or
  • Will the case officer be verifying only the continuous residence 5 years prior to the application date?
I came to the UK as EU citizen and here are the dates to further clarify my circumstances:
  • 08/02/2015 landed in the UK
  • 21/04/2015 started my first job and have been working from since without any interruption
  • 15/02/2020 obtained my settled status
  • 15/02/2021 passed one year since I have received my settled status
Based on the above dates, can I apply for the British Citizenship on 16/02/2021?

Happy to provide further details if required.
Thank you very much in advance
