Re: UKM denied

As expertcitizen has advised, after the March 2018 UKSC judgment, children born abroad between 1962 and 1983 to British citizen mothers by descent can now register on Form UKM. You should therefore reapply, and cite the judgment in your application. Something does not make sense here. Why doesn't i...

Re: UKM denied

Your mother is automatically British by descent as she was born abroad to British father, so yes, she is entitled to a British passport without the need to be registered. However, this does not extend to her children. It most certainly does!! The Supreme court ruled as such in March 2018. the argum...

Re: BC ceremony - what if unable to attend for a few months?

Until you go through the ceremony you are not a British citizen yet. There was even a case reported in this forum where an approved applicant who had his citizenship ceremony was later refused a first passport becaue he applied for it right after from abroad raising doubts on his future intentions.

Once you have been granted British citizenship you are not permitted to enter the UK as a non-visa national visitor.
That is correct hence he has to possibly produce his naturalization certificate (along with his NZ passsport) to prove he is British

Re: Travelling on old passport after naturalisation

That should not be a problem. You can carry your naturalization certificate with you to present to border control upon entry proving to them you are British. There is no legal obligation as far as I know for British citizens to enter the UK with a British passport.

Re: Applying for UK citizenship - future intentions condition

Why on earth will a caseworker grant you citizenship 3 months in advance of a normal application and after knowing you are going abroad for 3 years? Most likely they will tell you to reapply if and when you return to the UK.

The OP lives in Malaysia and was born in 1981 in the UK to non diplomats parents. On the face of it he seems to me British already and can apply directly for British passport. His only issue may be with Malasiyan authorities retarding dual citizenship but I don't know too much about that..
