Are you eligible?  

You can apply for a British citizenship if:  


You were born in the UK  

If you were born before 1983 or if born after the 1st January 1983 and one of your parents was a British citizen or ‘settled’ in the UK, then you’re a British citizen by birth. If you are not a British citizen by birth, you can still apply for naturalisation if you are:  

  • Under 18 and one of your parents becomes a British citizen or secures Indefinite Leave to Remain or settle status in the UK 

  • You lived in the UK until you were 10 years old or older  


You married a British citizen (or someone with settled status) 

If you are married to a British citizen and have lived in the UK for the last 3 years, you can immediately apply for naturalisation once you have ILR or you have a settle status under the EU settlement scheme.  


You have an Indefinite Leave to Remain (ILR) status  

In some immigration categories, you may qualify for ILR after completing 5 years of residency in the UK. You can apply for British citizenship after completing 12 months in the UK as an ILR holder or you have ‘settled’ status according to the EU Settlement Scheme.
