You should also have no problem with your PR in UK. it's only when the fine is not paid that it will affect the outcome. It's like having an unpaid debt that's all and not a criminal offence.BillyB wrote:Sorry, my bad!

Well the original intention for me & my wife was to settle in the UK. But then my wife had issues with UK immigration and could enter UK only after I became a PR here. So we waited for 2 years and also appealed the refusal in the meanwhile. The UK regulations changed in April this year making it difficult for me to settle because of my traffic offences. I was totally confused as I have an established career here.
I have now asked my employer for a relocation to Singapore. The plan was to return to UK (as a returning resident) if my application for PR here is successful (against all odds) after spending a couple of years in Singapore. If not, apply for a PR in Singapore. So that we can start a family life at least now - two years after our wedding!
Still feel I'm stepping on someone else's PR chances? Can't help!
(btw I've paid my speeding tickets - but under UK laws they don't become spent until after 5 years - till when you will have issues with your settlement application)
It's the same across Europe too as far as i know!
Though if you have an Insurance number which it appears that you have and you have been in the UK more than 3 years, you are already a permanent resident, so you must be talking about Citizenship rather than PR, as a foreigner could apply for citizenship after 3 years back in the 1990's, i guess that may change to slow down the influx, and it maybe a 7 year wait now like in Denmark for foreigners.
The gate posts move all the time. But you have your PR in UK already otherwise you wouldn't be working legally, check your passport for the right of abode in UK, if you have that you can freely go in and out.
For citizenship all debts must be paid off top the government before any consideration for Citizenship, including HP. This is connected to the welfare system on loans and such.
