If you want to apply for citizenship in the UK, it is recommended to ask for details and information in this matter from our immigration solicitors in London who can also guide you throughout the entire process. It is important to have the support of a UK immigration lawyer right from the start.

British citizenship by naturalization
Obtain British citizenship through registration
Instead of naturalization, individuals living in the UK might be interested in obtaining British citizenship through registration, an easier procedure. This option is available for persons born after 1983, before 1983 to a British mother or for individuals known as stateless persons. Moreover, people with relations in Hong Kong or Gibraltar are also eligible to obtain British citizenship through the registration process. Our London immigration lawyer can assist throughout the entire process.
