British overseas territories

These territories are current British overseas territories from their formation on 1 January 1983.

Those with family links to a British overseas territory will probably become a British overseas territories citizen (BOTC).

In the case of Hong Kong before 1 July 1997, residents could (in some circumstances) register as British nationals overseas (BNO).
