Re: British Nationality

How can I find that my mother's registration was done or not? Which office I have to contact for that? I already contacted the national Archives, UK. they don't have such copy. The only department on the UK side that I know would have such records would be the National Archives. And of course, your...

Re: British Nationality

they moved to UK, before they are turned 18 years of age. If they moved to the UK and then resided in the UK for five years before 1983, it is quite likely that they will be full British citizens. Did you mother live in the UK for five years before 1983 or did your grandfather include her in the re...

I will complete my 10 years in 2.5 years. Am I still able to get ILR based on long residence?
Assuming your other absences are in control and you meet other requirements, you may be able to apply based on Long Residence on or after May 2023.

Re: British Nationality

As I have mentioned in that other thread, it all depends on whether your mother was registered as a CUKC in the UK (or at the UK HIgh Commission in Singapore) herself OR if she had resided in the UK herself for five years before 1983. If either of these conditions are met, she would have become a Br...

Thanks, what does (M) mean?
FLR = Further Leave to Remain.
Possibly "Matrimonial"?

Re: Option after wife's ILR

Keep in mind that if you switch to FLR(M), your years on Tier 2 will not count for the purposes of ILR.

You will need five years on FLR(M) before qualifying for ILR.

Re: American citizenship by descent

US nationality law by birth outside the US is quite complex and depends on the period of time that your husband was born.

Have a look at the Wikipedia page on US citizenship through birth abroad to US citizens to get a broad idea of the complexities involved.

Re: whats the best way to stay an EU citzen after brexit?

It should be pointed out that there is no such status as "EU Citizen" Actually, there is , though it is currently limited to qualifying citizens of EU member-states. But EU citizenship is in addition to the national citizenship. Indeed, that is the whole basis of the Surinder Singh route, where EU ...

Re: British Nationality

The chances of being able to claim British nationality through such a route are relatively low, but not impossible. In what capacity did your grandfather work for Her Britannic Majesty's service? And where was he recruited (generally Crown Service only counts if the person was recruited in the UK an...

Fees: £80.
And given that the £80 is fees for a citizenship ceremony, I presume (not sure) that it would be refunded if the application fails.

My research is getting complex results .Look at this passport validity 1980-1990.Same stamp? https://www.papertotravel.com/MP-74 Unless I am missing something subtle, that is a bog-standard cancellation stamp. It has nothing to do with RoA or patriality (what RoA was called before 1983). As I menti...

Renewing your mother's British passport can jeopardize her residency in India, assuming that's where she lives now. Indian immigration law permits latent claims to other nationality, but application for a foreign passport is an act that causes automatic loss of Indian nationality, and she would bec...
