Residents and those born in Bangladesh have several ways in which to claim British Nationality. These are:

  • A British or UK-born mother or father
  • Not having gained nationality of Bangladesh on Independence Day
  • A grandparent born in the UK
  • A parent or grandparent born outside of Bangladesh
  • A parent or grandparent holding a nationality other than Bangladesh

For British Nationality purposes, the Republic of Ireland is included in the definition of the United Kingdom before 31.03.1922.

The Independence Day arrangements on 04.02.1972 gave rise to many residents gaining one of the various forms of British Nationality. Those born in Bangladesh would have held Pakistani nationality. This status would have been lost if the new Bangladesh constitution granted nationality. If not, then British Overseas Citizen (BOC) status may have been achieved and, in some cases, this can be upgraded to full British Nationality.

For these and other forms of British Nationality available to Bangladesh residents, those born there or nationals, click on British Citizenship.

STATUS OF BANGLADESH

Before the date of Indian independence on 15.08.1947, Bangladesh formed part of India, and fell part of the British Crown Dominions.

Between the date of Pakistani independence from India (15.08.1947) and 03.02.1972, Bangladesh was known as East Pakistan and formed part of that country.

As from 04.02.1972 until the present day, Bangladesh was an independent Commonwealth country. Click here for more information about the consequences of being born in a Commonwealth country.
