Singapore

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

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.
