British citizenship
Status Trace

With our Status Trace we research into your family's history (birth, death and marriage dates and countries of birth) to determine what rights to British nationality have been passed from one
generation to another. The objective is to find whether a person (or their children)
has a claim to British nationality in the modern day.

What does the Status Trace provide?

The research work is undertaken by a specialist British nationality expert trained in nationality law and a Status Trace report is written summarising their findings.

The Status Trace will enable Philip Gamble's nationality experts to provide a definitive "Yes" or "No" answer to whether you (or your children) have a right to a British passport. This service costs £350 and is popular with clients wanting to know whether they have a legitimate claim or not.

The Status Trace is the only way in which Philip Gamble and his team of British nationality advisers can establish your rights where there is any complexity in your family tree. In addition, it serves as the justification and legal basis by which you have a claim when an application is submitted to the Home Office.

To start the process, we suggest that you order your free British Passport Review. After you have an answer, you can then make a decision as to whether to move to the final step in finding out if you have a claim to British nationality – the Status Trace.
