Free UK Immigration and British Nationality Search

Our online database contains over 3.5 million unique rules, matching your input data against all the immigration and nationality solutions and anomalies known to Philip Gamble. Our unique QUICK search asks 20% of the available questions that supply over 80% of the most popular and common visa and passport solutions.

This QUICK search is designed to take less than 1 minute to complete.

Once you have completed the QUICK search, you can then complete our FULL search. This covers 80% of the available questions that supply 20% of the solutions - these are typically the interesting and obscure solutions that you never knew about. In fact, many of these obscure visa solutions aren't offered by your typical visa agent, because they have no experience (or knowledge) of them.

This FULL search can be done any time, and at your leisure. You can log back into the site, recall your data, and continue the process. The more questions you answer, of course, the more accurate and complete the solutions.

Registration on the WhatPassport site gives you several key benefits (all of which are free):

  • You can search through all the nationality solutions that you appear to qualify for.
  • You will receive updates whenever new solutions or loopholes are found where you appear to meet the criteria.

Free Updates by Email & SMS

We hate spam as much as you do. So we only send you an email and/or SMS IF - and only IF - a new immigration or nationality solution becomes available to you.

Every day, we run an automated search matching your input criteria against the solutions held in our database. Your eligibility to solutions can change when:

  • WhatPassport.com adds a new solution into the database that matches your existing search criteria;
  • Your personal circumstances trigger a new solution (for example, you turn 18 or 65, or your residency length or relationship length passes a certain threshold); OR
  • A visa solution changes (remember, governments change their immigration rules constantly), triggering a change in your eligibility.

Status Trace

The Status Trace is a written report produced by our team of British nationality specialists. It involves research into your family history to determine where and when key family members where born and married. It is the only way in which we can give you a Yes/No answer to a claim to British nationality where there is any complexity in your situation.

What documents should be supplied:

We do not need to see original documentation. We can rely on copies of certificates (birth, registration and marriage) or simply on what you can recall from your family history. The Status Trace does not involve an application to the UK Home Office.

If we do find that you have a valid claim, we will advise you on the next steps to take and also what documentation will have to be supplied when a formal application is made to the Home Office.

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.
