United Kingdom - flag United Kingdom - Passport & Nationality - NEW - British Citizenship by Discretion (4L Mother Protectorate)

This solution has become available because of new legislation to remedy gender discrimination in the old British nationality law. Broadly, it requires:

 - applicant born between 1 January 1949 and 31 December 1982;

 - applicant's mother born before 1 January 1949 in a former British Protectorate, Protected State, Trust or Mandated Territory;

 - applicant's parents married before the independence of the mother's country of birth;

 - applicant's paternal grandmother born in the UK.

PLEASE NOTE: This law gained Royal Assent on Thursday 28 April 2022, and is expected to become effective in the months following this date (around October 2022). However, we will be taking on cases now on a strictly first-come, first-serve basis in anticipation of this implementation date. This is because we will include a formal assessment of the applicant´s nationality status and an opinion on the likely success of their application, as well as setting out the documents that the home Office will require.

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.
