British Citizenship

Once you have successfully obtained British Citizenship you are able to work, live and access public funds as well as raising your dependent children in the UK; without any immigration restrictions. This is known as a right of abode. 

There are different ways in which you can apply for British Citizenship based in your circumstances. If you are eligible to apply in more than one way, you choose which way you wish to apply.

You may be able to apply for British Citizenship by ‘Naturalisation’ if either 

You moved to the UK on a visa, or

You are from a European Economic Area (EEA) country

In order to be eligible, generally, you need to have lived in the UK for the last five years and must:

Have held Indefinite Leave to Remain (ILR) for the last 12 months, or

Have held a Permanent Residence Status for the last 12 months if from the EEA

You may be able to apply as a spouse or civil partner of a British citizen instead for which you are only required to have lived in the UK for the last three years and must:

Have ILR, or A Permanent Residence document if from the EEA
