A person who on some date after 1982 renounced British citizenship, British dependent territories citizenship or British Overseas Territories citizenship may in some circumstances resume that nationality by a process of registration. In all cases, there is a good character requirement for the registration. Normally, the process can only be done once. A person who renounced citizenship of United Kingdom and Colonies before 1983 may in some circumstances become a British citizen or British Overseas Territories citizen by a process of registration. Passportia can advise on:

  • whether the person qualifies for resumption by registration,
  • the advantages and disadvantages of resumption,
  • any cheaper routes to re-acquisition of British nationality,
  • the procedure to follow.

Passportia can analyse your situation and find out if you qualify, prepare and submit your application to the Home Office in the UK, to ensure that you get your British passport back with the minimum of stress and hassle. To find out more contact us or request an evaluation now.

Passportia is a specialist nationality advice firm independent of the UK government and regulated by the Office of Immigration Services Commissioner (OISC).  Legal advice on how to demonstrate and substantiate a claim cannot be obtained from the government.

I'd like to take this opportunity to thank you for all your guidance and efforts that resulted in a successful outcome for this case. Having UK citizenship has been tremendously significant in my life, and I’m most grateful to you that my children will now experience this too.
