Sudan

British and Egyptian forces occupied the Sudan in 1898 and the following year the territory became an Anglo-Egyptian Condominium. This continued up until 1953, at which point the UK and Egypt agreed that Sudan should be granted independance. Sudanese Independence was granted on 1 January 1956. During this period, passport holders were treated as royal prerogative BPPs (British Protected Persons).

Since 1 January 1956, Sudan is considered as a Foreign Country.

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.
