Second, another point of fact is that for married applicants, if you do not share the same mailing address, you are charged as single applicants. Now, part of the reason we wanted to apply together is for the general savings of the married versus single application (currently a £300 savings); though the other reason is that fees are going up by £250 in April. So thank goodness the registrar CALLED THE HOME OFFICE and got this sorted out, or, once again, our application would have gone in and ALL OF THE MONEY WOULD HAVE BEEN TAKEN but with no citizenship as it would have been our faults for screwing up the paperwork.
Anyway: everything is sorted now, the application will be mailed on Monday, I should get an email confirming its receipt by the Home Office on Tuesday, and some time next week a fat wad of money will be charged to my credit card, to be transformed into frequent flyer miles. And both of us have our passports and can I say that our upcoming Easter holidays canNOT be coming soon enough; I am sick and tired of the freezing weather! Oh yeah, and J and I both agree: this was £90 WELL SPENT.
