United Kingdom - Passport & Nationality - British Citizenship by Double Descent (Territory PGF Colony)
This is a rare instance of entitlement to British Citizenship. It relies on:
- The applicant born before 01.01.1983 in a former British territory;
- The applicant's father born in a country that became a Commonwealth country on 01.01.1949;
- The applicant's paternal grandfather born in a former British Colony that remained a colony after the applicant's country of birth became independent; AND
- The applicant having the Right of Abode through a UK-born grandparent.
This claim relies on both generations born in wedlock and the applicant escaping the Automatic Loss provisions that were enacted upon independence of his country of birth.
