One of the requirements for applying for British citizenship through naturalization is:

During the last five years you must not have been outside the United Kingdom for more than 450 days (about 15 months);

How is that proven as an EU citizen? Does the government already automatically know how long you stayed in the UK for (using their airport records) if you're a EU student?

Or do you need to show your flight tickets?

Please explain to me how this process works exactly. Thanks!


You swear a declaration to that effect

The authorities may or may not investigate at the time. However, if you lie and it emerges that you lied, your citizenship can be revoked as it was issued on false pretences.
