We are world leaders in British citizenship applications

British nationality law is extraordinarily complex and many people who have claims to British citizenship are unaware of their rights. That’s where our team comes in. We make the process of researching your options and applying for British citizenship as simple as possible.

British citizenship eligibility

Once you have British citizenship, you can live and work without restriction in the UK.

You may be eligible for British citizenship when you:

  • Register as a British citizen if you have another type of British nationality

  • Receive settled status and can then apply for UK naturalisation

Standard claims

Many claims to British nationality are straightforward, and are made up of one of the following:

  • Born in the UK before 1 January 1983

  • A parent born in the UK before 1 January 1983

  • A parent naturalised in the UK before your birth

  • Naturalisation through residency in the UK

Non-standard claims

All other claims to British citizenship have to be determined by reference to old nationality law and the independence day arrangements (and constitution) of the relevant countries of your family (i.e. your parents and grandparents). This requires researching legal documents dating back as far as 1906.

A further difficulty is that such applications do not have a standard application form and so a written explanation of how you qualify (and why) has to be made to the Home Office – and you will be required to quote the necessary nationality law substantiating this.
