Exempt spouses with Settled Status from Life in the UK Test

Petition Details

We want the Government to allow spouses of UK nationals, who are permanent residents of the UK with Settled Status, to be able to apply for UK citizenship without having to pass the Life in the UK test or prove their knowledge of English.

Additional Information

Many British Citizens, born and bred in the UK, have married overseas nationals. Their spouses have since made the UK their home. Many have lived, worked and paid their taxes for decades. Many have had several children, and even grandchildren. They have built their homes and whole lives around a British family, but they are denied citizenship unless they pay for and pass what we believe is an unnecessary test.
