Want to claim British citizenship? Find out if you are eligible.

We examine your circumstances to see if you qualify

Find our your UK nationality status

If you were born in a different country to that of your parents or grandparents, or you have a UK-born ancestor, then it’s possible that you have a claim to British nationality. However, most clients struggle to find the information needed to determine this.

 

Routes to British nationality

Many claims to British nationality are straightforward and based on one of the following criteria:

  • You were born in the UK before 1 January 1983
  • One of your parents was born in the UK before 1 January 1983
  • You have a parent who was naturalised in the UK before your birth
  • You obtained naturalisation through residency in the UK

An in-depth look into your family history

Our initial assessment can give you a quick answer to your nationality and visa options. However, many cases are more complex and require in-depth research into old nationality laws. Independence Day arrangements and the Constitutions of the jurisdictions of your parents’ and grandparents’ birth and residence also need to be consulted.

Our sister company, Philip Gamble & Partners, specialises in British nationality claims and offers a Status Trace service to those looking for a definitive answer regarding their nationality status.

This service involves the examination of your nationality documents, including birth and marriage certificates, as well as old passports and other documents that could have a bearing on your nationality status.

The Status Trace service costs £350 and can be purchased from the results page on your Visa Assessment. You can also purchase the service here, directly.
