British Nationality could be obtained through your birth, or through the birth of any one of your parents or grandparents, in the Northern Territories Protectorate, now part of Ghana. This arises because of Britain's relationship with Ghana and its Colonial history. As a general rule, any person born in the Protectorate became a British Protected Person (BPP).

To determine what form of British Nationality you might have, an analysis of your family's history must be done, and then applying it to the Nationality laws of Ghana that were passed over the years.

NOTE: For UK Nationality purposes, it is critical to know the places and dates of birth of BOTH your parents and ALL four grandparents (irrespective of whether you think this data is relevant or not). If any parent or grandparent was born in a country DIFFERENT to your country of birth, then you have a greater chance of automatically qualifying for a form of British Nationality.
