Changing your nationality can be considered as a major life event, some
countries do not allow you to hold more than one citizenship. The UK on
the other hand, allows you to hold more than one nationality. There is no
automatic right to becoming a British Citizen. There are several ways to
become a British Citizen, the process itself is known as ‘naturalisation’ for
those 18 years and over. Naturalising allows you to obtain citizenship. This
area of law is complex and we suggest that you contact us, to discuss
your options.
