Citizenship

British Citizenship is not compulsory; however, this is something many people consider following a period of time working the UK. British nationality law is a very complex area of UK law. It may be necessary to trace back several generations to identify if a person is a British Citizen or is entitled to British Citizenship.


Naturalisation is often the way adults who were not born in the UK become British. People who have Indefinite Leave to Remain (ILR) or settlement can apply to naturalise as British Citizens, subject to fulfilling the necessary residence requirements.


Registration as a British Citizen
For children born outside the UK, we need to make sure under which category the child is entitle for the citizenship. – Section 3(5) of the British Nationality Act 1981 or Section 3(2) and Section 3(1)


Also, when the child is born in the UK, we will also have to evaluate the circumstances of the parents to evaluate is the child is entitle for the citizenship at the time of his birth.


Right of Abode
British nationality can include categories such as British Overseas Territories Citizenship, British Subject and British National (Overseas). Whereas British Citizenship will give you a right to live in the UK, these other forms will not, although they may be a step toward becoming a British Citizen.


The Right of Abode in the UK, is a certificate allowing a person to live and work in the UK without restriction. Holders of this type of visa may enter and leave the country free of Immigration control and pass through the gates for British passport holders at UK ports and airports.
