United Kingdom - Passport & Nationality - British Citizenship by Double Descent (Crown Dominion UKM)
A solution exists for a person born between 1949 and 1983 to a mother born before 01.01.1949 in a place that remained a British Protectorate on 01.01.1949. In addition, their maternal grandfather (mother's father) must have been born in a place that was within the British Crown Dominions on 31.12.1948.
If the candidate was born AFTER Independence of the Protectorate (where the mother was born), then the MOTHER needs a Paternal Grandfather born in the UK, and the applicant will need to have the UK Right of Abode. If the candidate was born BEFORE Independence of the Protectorate (where the mother was born), then the APPLICANT needs a Paternal Grandfather born in the UK.
For a successful claim, the candidate must not have been subject to the automatic loss arrangements specific to the Protectorate involved to qualify under this provision.
