British citizenship

UK passport is amongst the most powerful passports in the world. It not only allows the holder to freely live and work in the UK, but gaining British nationality will allow you to travel visa free to 187 countries in the world.

There are a number of ways to obtain British citizenship. You might be automatically British if you were born to British or settled parents in the UK, or you might be able to naturalise as British, if you have ILR and have had a lawful residence in the UK for at least 5 years. Apart from these scenarios, in certain circumstances, for those with links to the UK, registering as a British citizen might be an option. British nationality applications, in particular those related to rights by descent, can be quite complex. We have a team of top immigration lawyers specialising in British nationality matters. You can rely on our immigration team for guidance and support for your British Nationality application.

We can offer you help for all British nationality matters, including:

  1. Naturalisation as a British national – If you have spent at least 5 continuous years in the UK and have obtained your ILR, you might qualify for naturalising as British. Things can become complex if, for instance, you have too many absences from the UK, have a criminal record, have undergone bankruptcy or other issues that may place your good character under question. Or perhaps there are other complexities in your circumstances that you require help with. Whatever your question or concern, RVS Solicitors has the best UK immigration lawyers to assist you with your naturalisation application.
  2. Registering as British for minors – children, while minors, can be registered to become British nationals in a number of circumstances. For instance, a child who is born in the UK, might not have been able to receive British citizenship upon birth because neither of the parents were British or settled. Or perhaps the child being born abroad to non-British parents now has parents who have naturalised and so on. There can be many situations in which you, as a parent, might be unsure about your child’s right to be registered as British. Our immigration solicitors can assess your matter and clarify the situation for you, so that you can proceed with a clear understanding of your child’s circumstances.
  3. Registration as British National for adults – Registration as a British citizen as an adult differs from naturalisation in that it is open to those that have specific types of links to the UK. For instance, they might be someone born to a British mother before the date when women were able to transfer their nationality to their children. Alternatively, they might be born to an unmarried British father and so on. For these people, there is no requirement to have spent a certain amount of time in the UK or demonstrate that they are free of immigration controls like it is the case with naturalisation. However, registration can be even more complex than naturalisation, as there are a myriad of different situations in which one might have a claim to British Nationality. It is essential that your circumstances are assessed correctly and the right route of registration is identified for you. Our lawyers specialising in British Nationality matters will be able to guide you, no matter how intricate your circumstances are.

No matter what route you take to British Nationality, you will have the right to reside in the UK without any restriction on the time, your ability to work here, study here and will be able to reunite with your family, if you have one abroad.
