British Citizenship UK

Apply for a British passport

Once you have full British Citizenship you are free to apply for a British passport.

We can advise on all aspects of Citizenship including, residence, eligibility requirements and the documents required to support the applications. We also advise on complex citizenship applications and queries over claims to citizenship.

British Citizenship

If you have been living and working in the UK for at least 5 years and hold Indefinite Leave to Remain, you may wish to make an application for British citizenship through naturalisation. If you are successfully granted British Citizenship, you will be permitted to hold a British passport.

This will allow you to stay in the UK permanently and enjoy the full range of rights as UK citizens. Our immigration solicitors can help you and your family with your application to make sure you meet the requirements for citizenship and guide you through the process from start to finish.

British Citizenship


Registration is the way in which children can become British citizens and it is also used for adults in special circumstances. It is necessary for those over ten years old to be of good character, but it is not necessary to demonstrate knowledge of the language or of life in the UK.
There are several requirements and exceptions so it is best to speak to us about your individual circumstances so we can advise you on the best way forward.

Citizenship Application Appeals

If your citizenship application is refused, we understand that this can be a stressful situation. It can be refused for various reasons and there is no automatic right to appeal this decision. However , it is possible to request a review of the decision.
Our immigration team can assist with submitting a review on your behalf. If this is ineffective, then we can advise you further about the possibility of challenging the decision via Judicial Review.
