Re: entitlement certificate to right of abode

By the way the cert of entitlement states s1(2)(a) of BNA 1971 so that woud mean he is a british citizen If that's the case and he is as you say a British citizen, it means that he can apply for a British passport. How long he has been in the UK or even whether or not he has ever been in the UK is ...

Being employed is not a requirement for naturalisation. Indeed, some people who naturalise have never been employed in the UK (an obvious group of such people being women who might put "home duties" as their employment).

A citizen cannot be deported and may be afforded consular protection when abroad (and there could be situations in which being British could be more advantageous than being American). However, for most people these things are, happily, more a matter of academic interest than practical reality. One o...

Two things that occur to me for you to consider:

(a) You must have been in the UK on the date of your application at the beginning of the qualifying period.

(b) Have you checked if you would, under Spanish law, lose your Spanish citizenship if you naturalise as the citizen of another country?

Huh? :?: The OP is talking about naturalisation as a British citizen. The ceremony is on 14 August.

Well done, blackbeauty! I hope you can now move on from the anxiety and proceed with the rest of your life as you would wish to. :)

The father's passport can't be completely necessary, because not every father in such a situation would have even have had a passport. The fact that the child was born overseas and that the child's mother was married to the child's British-born father doesn't, after all, preclude the fact that the c...

However, even if you were to use your current passport with ILR to travel in and out of the UK, you would not be able to renew your ILR sticker when it came time to renew your passport. You could, completely legitimately, elect to have a Certificate of Entitlement to the Right of Abode placed in you...

The passport application form is very deficient in this regard. Many years ago there were multiple forms, for use depending on the basis on which one was applying (birth, descent, naturalisation, birth in a colony...) – this of course made it easy if one knew to ask for the right form (no internet b...

I would be very worried if the government starts to give away citizenships within a day. There is a big difference between giving the right to work/live in the country (even if indefinitely) and citizenship. On the other hand, it is clear that the HO can't cope with the amount of applications. I th...

Agree with Jambo – it won't make any difference. The Home Office is interested in whether you fulfil the requirements, including the UK residence requirements, for naturalisation, and the fact that you may have a resident permit for a third country (i.e. not your country of citizenship and not the U...

Re: Multiple citizenship??

That is no problem. In broad, general terms, countries that do not attempt to restrict double or dual citizenship take the same approach to multiple citizenship. You will be able to keep your Australian and New Zealand citizenships if you apply for naturalisation and become a British citizen, and th...

Those born on the island of Ireland after 1922 can choose to be one or tother or both. Well, that has only ever applied to people born in Northern Ireland, obviously.
