If you retain residency in the US and become a national of the UK, you will have UK Dual Citizenship status. This is otherwise known as American-British Dual Nationality.

Having UK Dual Citizenship allows you to keep the same status in the US while enjoying the same freedoms in the UK. This means you can live, work, rent/buy assets and travel between the two countries with ease.

How can IAS help?

Our team of expert immigration lawyers can assist you with your British Citizenship application. We will ensure that you are eligible to keep your American status and guide you through each stage of your application process.

Your lawyer will work with you one-on-one, gathering and organizing your supporting evidence. They will also submit a detailed Letter of Representation and liaise with the Home Office. With IAS, every aspect of your application is taken care of. To find out more, contact us today on +1844 290 6312 or make an inquiry online.

FAQ

What are the American-UK Dual Citizenship requirements?

You need to have lived in the UK with Indefinite Leave to Remain (ILR) for five continuous years to become a British citizen unless you have been here with a British spouse/partner. If this is the case, you can apply once you have been living in Britain for at least three continuous years.

What is the ‘Life in the UK’ test?

The ‘Life in the UK test’, also known as the ‘British Citizenship test’ is a multiple-choice exam which tests you on what it means to live in Britain.

The test includes questions about British politics, history, tradition, geography and pop culture. These questions are constantly changing.

It must be passed successfully (by 75%) to become a British citizen.
