British Citizenship

British nationality law is the law of the United Kingdom which concerns citizenship and other categories of British nationality. British nationality laws can at times be complex owing to UK’s historical standing as an imperial power with colonies.

UK allows dual citizenship (also known as dual nationality). This means you can be a British citizen and also a citizen of other countries. There is no need to apply for dual citizenship. Individuals can apply for foreign citizenship and keep their British citizenship. However, many countries (e.g. India) do not accept dual citizenship.

Also you don’t automatically become a British citizen when you marry a person from the UK.

Naturalisation as British Citizen

An individual who has lawfully been a resident in the UK for five years and has held Indefinite Leave to Remain (ILR) for last one year can apply for naturalisation as a British Citizen. In order to apply for naturalization as British citizen the individual must not have any unspent criminal conviction and must have passed Life in the UK Test.

According to current UK Nationality laws an individual can apply for British citizenship by naturalisation if they:

  • are aged 18 or over
  • are of good character, for example, you don’t have a serious or recent criminal record, and you haven’t tried to deceive the Home Office or been involved in immigration offences in the last 10 years
  • will continue to live in the UK
