United Kingdom - flag United Kingdom - Passport & Nationality - British Citizenship by Descent (UKM British Registration)

A person...

 1) who was born between 01.01.1949 and 31.12.1982;

 2) whose mother was registered as a British citizen before 31.12.1982; AND

 3) who was born AFTER their mother's registration but BEFORE 31.12.1982.

 ... may have a potential claim to British nationality. Their mother's registration as a British citizen meant that she passed on a CUKC by descent status to their child, and the child could have been reclassified as a British citizen on 01.01.1983.


Ask Philip Gamble whether you (or your children) have a claim to British nationality.

WhatPassport.com is a specialist UK Nationality and British Citizenship site offering an online search and assessment. Claims to hold a British Passport can be complex and the site offers a quick, simple search to give you the answers. 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.
