Thank you for your enquiry.

The British Nationality Act 1981 governs the requirements for obtaining British citizenship. It is a complex area of law and we must take detailed instructions from you before we can advise you as to your options. 

You cannot obtain British citizenship simply by birth in the UK. 

Someone will be in touch with you shortly to see how we can help you further.
