United Kingdom - Passport & Nationality - British Citizenship by Birth (Stateless UK Birth)
A person can be registered as a British citizen where:
- they were born in the UK or Northern Ireland;
- they were born on or after 1 January 1983;
- they are under 22 years of age; AND
- they were born stateless (i.e. without nationality).
This occurs more often than one realises. Where a parent's nationality does NOT pass down to a child born outside of the parent's country of citizenship, the child is often born without a nationality.
