United Kingdom - Passport & Nationality - Asians in Burma (UK Nationality)
Because of how the Constitution of Burma determined how Citizenship was granted, Burmese with parents or grandparents born OUTSIDE of Burma have a possibility of being granted one of the five forms of British Nationality. This is because of the protection offered to British Subjects born or resident in Burma before Independence.
In particular, and because of the large numbers involved, Burmese with Indian ancestry (parents or grandparents born in India) have a higher likelihood of being granted automatic British Nationality.
STATUS OF BURMA (Myanmar)
