Residents and those born in Uganda (including those descended from parents born in Uganda) have several ways in which to claim British Nationality. These are:

  • A British or UK-born mother or father
  • Not having gained nationality of Uganda on Independence
  • A grandparent born in the UK
  • A parent or grandparent born outside of Uganda
  • You or your family have Indian origin
  • A parent or grandparent holding a nationality other than Uganda

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

For more information on how British Nationality could be gained through your birth (or a parent's birth) in a British Protectorate coupled with a UK-born grandparent, watch this short video by Philip Gamble:

Birth in Protectorate and UK-born grandparent

 

The Independence Day arrangements on 09.10.1962 gave rise to many residents gaining one of the various forms of British Nationality. Those born in Uganda would have held British Protected Person (BPP) status. This status would have been lost if the new Uganda constitution granted nationality. If not, then BPP status would have been maintained and, in some cases, this can be upgraded to full British Nationality. In particular, those with an Indian-born parent or grandparent have strong possibilities for British protection. In some cases, where Uganda nationality was NOT granted (i.e. because of where your parents were born), then British Overseas Citizen (BOC) status would have been granted.
