British Nationality could be obtained through your birth, or through the birth of any one of your parents or grandparents, in the Seychelles. This arises because of Britain's relationship with the Seychelles 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 of the Seychelles that were passed over the years.
