Those who have been granted ILR no longer have any time limit on their rights to reside and work in the UK, and there is no requirement that they must apply for British citizenship. As ILR would be lost after living outside the UK for two years, however, some decide to apply to Naturalise as a British citizen.
Points to note:
More information on applying to Naturalise as a British citizen is found in Home Office guidance.
Some countries do not permit their citizens to hold dual nationality and when granted British citizenship they would lose their own citizenship. Some other countries require applicants to give notice that they are applying for another nationality, or to submit an application to retain their own citizenship.
The Staff Immigration Team (SIT) recommends that applicants check with their own embassy or consulate whether their country permits dual nationality, and if they need to follow any other processes, to carefully consider these issues before applying for British citizenship.
