star this property answer text <p>To support those people who have lived in the UK for a long time, on 30 May we launched the Windrush Scheme. The scheme ensures that members of the Windrush generation, their children born in the UK and who arrived in UK as minors, and others who have been in the United Kingdom for a long period of time, will be able to obtain the documents to confirm their status and, in appropriate cases, be able to obtain British citizenship free of charge.</p><p>We aim to provide a high level of service for all our customers and to everyone who uses our services. All applications to UK Visas and Immigration, including citizenship applications, will be considered in line with existing service standards and customer commitments.</p> more like this
