United Kingdom - Passport & Nationality - British Protected Person (BPP) - Bechuanaland
A person who was born before 30 September 1966 outside of Bechuanaland to a father who was born in Bechuanaland will have been born a British Protected Person (or BPP) by descent. In some cases, this BPP status is retained after independence of Botswana on 30 September 1966. If this person is still considered a British Protected Person in the modern day - even if they don't realise it - it may be possible to upgrade this status to full British nationality.
The criteria for this solution is:
- Candidate born before 30 September 1966;
- Candidate born outside of Bechuanaland (now Botswana) in an independent country;
- Candidate's father born in Bechuanaland.
