United Kingdom - Passport & Nationality - British Overseas Citizen (BOC) - Burma Father
Where a person was born in Burma before 01.01.1949 and either their father or Paternal grandfather (i.e. their father's father) was born outside of Burma, then this person can apply for British Overseas Citizen (or BOC) status.
A further requirement is that the applicant must not be a "potential citizen" of any Section 1(3) country. These are the 7 Independent Commonwealth countries that existed in the years before 01.01.1949 and include Australia, New Zealand, Canada, South Africa, Southern Rhodesia, Ceylon and Undivided India.
Where an applicant has a grandparent born in the UK or Ireland, then this BOC status can be upgraded to full British Nationality.
