Post citizenship additions (PCA) have become extremely popular due to Covid. This way you dont commit to spending too much money upfront paying for family members. You can add dependants at later stages subject to availability of funds. When you apply as single main applicant, it gets much cheaper for you.
With the main applicant just one person applying, the whole process of application paperwork of collecting documents (police certificate, health certificate, legalisation etc.) becomes easier and the process can be accelerated for faster citizenship. You can apply at your own pace.
Post citizenship addition means you add family members (spouse, children, siblings) after the main applicant receives citizenship. You pay a flat fee to include dependants at any later stage including new born child.
Due diligence checks are also carried out on all family members and not exempted.
