The following requirements must be met:

The Residence Requirement:
If you are in the UK on the basis of your marriage to a British citizen, the qualifying period is reduced to three years. The allowed number of absences is also reduced accordingly.
The Good Character Requirement:
If your application is successful, you will be invited to attend a citizenship ceremony organised by your Local Authority. You will then receive a Certificate of Naturalisation.
