The British citizenship experts

British nationality law is extraordinarily complex and many who have claims to British citizenship are unaware of their rights. Our UK-based team of experts will be in South Africa for one week only this February.

If you have an ancestor born in the UK, you might be surprised by your options. Book a slot to meet with us and discover whether your family tree holds the key to a British passport for you or your children.
