British law allows you to take several routes to British citizenship. If one or both of your parents have a British nationality, the easiest way for you to UK citizenship is to apply for citizenship by descent.
However, you must meet additional requirements in order to be eligible for this route. Here is a look at these requirements and other details.
As noted above, you can acquire UK citizenship by descent automatically or you may have to apply for it.
In general, you automatically become a UK citizen if you were born abroad and one of your parents was a British citizen at the time. However, this is subject to when you were born.
If your date of birth fell before 1983 and you were not born in the UK, you automatically qualify for citizenship only if your father was a UK national and was married to your mother at the time of birth. In this case, your father must also have been a citizen of the UK and Colonies to pass on the citizenship.
If your date of birth was between 1983 and June 2006, you automatically qualify for citizenship if:
If the above conditions are met, you are eligible to apply for citizenship UK by descent.
If your date of birth fell on or after July 1, 2006, you are automatically eligible by nationality by descent granted either of your parents was a UK national at the time of your birth. However, the eligible parent must not have received their citizenship by descent.
If you are not sure whether or not you can automatically qualify for British citizenship, you can consult our immigration lawyers. Our British citizenship solicitors in London can offer detailed advice on how best to proceed.
British law broadly categorizes two ways of achieving British nationality – by descent, or otherwise than by descent.
Citizenship by descent is when you can seek UK nationality through the citizenship or settled status of one or both parents. It is also possible to seek nationality by descent through the status of your grandparents, although it is quite rare.
However, if you have become a UK citizen through descent, you can’t pass your nationality rights to a child who is not born in the UK. In other words, if a parent has become a UK citizenship by descent, his or her child can’t take the same route to British citizenship.
Citizenship by descent is automatically passed to the next generation in some cases. In other cases, you will have to apply for this route to citizenship if you meet the requirements and are eligible.

You need to apply for British citizenship by descent only if you don’t automatically qualify and need to register instead. You may register by filling out a Form UKF. You must submit several supporting documents to confirm your personal details, parental details, immigration history, good character, and other information.
You may also apply via post instead of submitting the online application. Postal applications typically cost more and take longer to process.
Once you submit your application, you will also be required to attend an appointment at a UKVCAS centre so that your photographs and fingerprints may be collected. This biometric information is a part of your citizenship application. During your UKVCAS appointment, you can also have your documents scanned if you couldn’t directly upload them online.
Our experienced immigration lawyers can thoroughly guide you along this process and offer help at every step of the application. It is best to ensure that your application is accurate and complete at the time of submission. Any omissions or errors can lead to delays in the processing of the application.
