British Citizenship and Naturalisation

Attaining British Citizenship will be one of the most important steps in your immigration history. It’s the final destination for many after having lived in the UK for a considerable length of time. However, it can be a very complex area of law with the different types of ways you can become a British Citizen and all of the different types of application forms and fees. The most common is called ‘naturalisation’.

You can apply for British citizenship by naturalisation if:

  • You are 18 or over
  • You are of sound mind
  • You are of good character
  • You will continue to live in the UK
  • You have met the knowledge of English and life in the UK requirements

You must usually also have:

  • Lived in the UK for at least the 5 years before the date of your application
  • Spent no more than 450 days outside the UK during those 5 years
  • Spent no more than 90 days outside the UK in the last 12 months
  • Been granted indefinite leave to stay in the UK
  • Had indefinite leave to stay in the UK for the last 12 months
  • Not broken any immigration laws while in the UK

Child Registration

If you are a minor under the age of 18 then you may make an application for child registration. This is not always an automatic right and in some instances you will be applying on a discretionary basis asking the Home Office to register a child as a British Citizen based on his/her circumstances. If you have any queries in relation to Nationality, British Citizenship, Naturalisation or Child Registration then please send us an enquiry.
