Not every child born in the UK will automatically be able to claim British citizenship by birth.
A child does not automatically become a British citizen when born in the UK if at least one of its parents aren’t British citizens. If a child is born in the UK, to one/both British parents, they will automatically be a British citizen.
If a child is born outside the UK to one or more British parents, they will need to register their British Citizenship status. This is a simple and straightforward process which allows the individual to access their British passport and full rights as a British citizen.
We can guide you through the process of British citizenship by birth. Your assigned lawyer will work one-on-one with you to assess your eligibility, discuss any issues you are having and guide you through the registration process.

A child born in the UK to a British parent will gain British Citizenship automatically by birth.
If a child is born in the UK to non-British parents who then gain settled status, the child can register for British Citizenship.
A child can become a British citizen through the process of registration.
This applies if the child was born outside the UK to at least one British parent, or if a child was born inside the UK to non-British parents who are then granted settled status.
A child who is born in the UK to non-British parents does not have a right to British Citizenship as of 1983.
However, if the child’s parents gain settled status after the birth, the child becomes eligible for British Citizenship through registration.
If a child born in the UK is eligible for British Citizenship by descent then they can apply for a passport straight away through the GOV.uk website.
If a child is born in the UK to non-British parents who gain settled status once the child has been born, the child will need to register as a British citizen. After they have done this, they can then apply for their British passport.
