Naturalisation or registration as a British citizen is a significant life decision. It is best that you consult an immigration specialist before proceedings with your application.
Once you have settled in the UK and have lived here legally for a set period of time, you may be eligible to naturalise as a British Citizen. Children may also become British citizens in certain circumstances. This is referred to as registration.
Before you begin your application for naturalisation, you must consider whether you meet the following requirements:
- You must be 18 and over
- You must meet the English language requirement and have sufficient knowledge of life in the UK
- You must be of good character
- You must meet the residential requirements
If you have any questions regarding any of the above criteria, your eligibility to apply for British citizenship or simply require legal advice on UK naturalisation or on registration of children, do not hesitate to contact us.
