United Kingdom - Passport & Nationality - Status Trace
Research into whether you have a valid British Nationality claim can be both time-consuming and expensive. To save you both time and money, We offer a FREE Status Trace service. The service is designed to be both quick and simple, and the objective is to give you guidance on whether you have a valid claim. It is a 3-step process:
- Register on the site, by doing the Quick search
- Answer as many Nationality questions on the Full Search
- Order the Status Trace service
One of our nationality experts will look at the family tree that your answers produce, and will give their opinion on your likelihood of having a valid claim to British Nationality. Their answer will be provided by email, and will be in the form of a one-word answer: Definite, Likely, Possible, Unlikely or None.
- You have a Standard claim.
- You have a Non-Standard claim.
- Your situation is unclear and your complex situation cannot be determined without further research.
- A claim in unlikely, though further research may establish a Non-Standard claim.
- You appear to have no claim to British Nationality, though we cannot rule it out completely without further research.
