Understanding your free British Passport Review

You can ask Philip Gamble to give his opinion on your (or your children’s) chances to claim to British citizenship. It’s free to use, and his personalised comments give you a better idea as to whether you should continue your research or not.

To ask Philip Gamble what he thinks your chances are of having a claim to British nationality, follow this simple process:

  1. Complete our free online British Citizenship Assessment
  2. Register your correct name, email address and mobile phone (it’s the final step in the online assessment)
  3. Double-check that all your family details are correct on your online family tree page (you’ll see this tab once you’ve completed the registration)
  4. Order a free British Passport Review from your results page.

You will get a confirmation email that you have correctly ordered your free review.

Philip Gamble will look at your family tree and give his opinion on your likelihood of having a valid claim to British nationality. His answer will be provided by email, and will be in the form of a one-word answer, accompanied by some personal comments about your situation.

The table below gives you an idea of the types of answers you will receive in your review.

How we rate your chances of claiming British nationality

Definite (>95%): You have a standard claim and no further research is required.
Likely (75%-95%): You have a non-standard claim and it requires a Status Trace to justify to the Home Office.
Possible (25%-75%) – research matter: You have a non-standard claim, but we’re in communication with the Home Office about approving the principle.
Possible (25-75%) - further information: Your situation is promising, but we need further specific information to give a more accurate opinion.
Possible (25-75%) – complex: Your situation is complex, and we will need to research your circumstances.
Unlikely (5%-25%) - UK Ancestry visa: A claim is unlikely, though further research may establish a non-standard claim. You qualify for the UK Ancestry visa.
Unlikely (5%-25%) - spouse could have a claim: A claim is unlikely, though further research may establish a non-standard claim. Your spouse may have a possible claim.
Unlikely (5%-25%) - UK spouse visa: A claim is unlikely, though further research may establish a non-standard claim. You qualify for the UK spouse visa.
Unlikely (5%-25%): A claim is unlikely, though further research may establish a non-standard claim.
Remote (<5%): You appear to have no claim to British nationality, though we cannot rule it out completely without further research.
