Israel

British Nationality could be obtained through your birth, or through the birth of any one of your parents or grandparents, in Israel. This arises because of Britain's relationship with the Middle East and Britain's Colonial history.

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 governing Israel that have been passed over the years.

STATUS OF ISRAEL

Up until 28.09.1923, the Crown exercised extra-territorial jurisdiction over the Palestine (which included what is now Israel).

On the 29.09.1923, Palestine became a British Mandated Territory.

Both the mandate and the jurisdiction ended when the State of Israel was established on 15 May 1948. From that day and up to the present, Israel is considered as a foreign country.

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

WhatPassport.com is a specialist UK Nationality and British Citizenship site offering an online search and assessment. Claims to hold a British Passport can be complex and the site offers a quick, simple search to give you the answers. While many people qualify for the UK Ancestry Visa based on holding a Commonwealth passport with a UK born grandmother or grandfather, we have found that if you have a grandparent born in the UK, or if your mother is British or your father is British, then there are several scenarios where you can claim British Nationality and the right to hold a British Passport. This stems from Britain’s collection of British Colonies, British Protectorates and British Protected States in the middle of last century and the Nationality rules concerning what are now the countries of the Commonwealth.
