British Citizenship by Double Descent-Swaziland (1948-5-1d)

British Citizenship by Double Descent through birth in Swaziland is a rare situation and relies on the Independence Day nationality laws. It relies on being born in Swaziland between 06.09.1968 (when Swaziland was a Protected State) and 01.01.1983 (when the new UK Nationality Laws became effective).

In addition, the candidate's father must have been born OUTSIDE of Swaziland and any one of the candidate's grandparents must have been born in the United Kingdom (or Ireland before 31.03.1922).

Children of this successful applicant can pass on certain UK Immigration rights (in particular, they could get Settlement but not Nationality).

For more solutions involving:

  • British Citizenship by Double Descent,
  • Crown Service,
  • a parent born in a UK controlled territory,
  • a British parent; OR
  • or a grandparent born in the UK (or Ireland before 1922),
