British Citizenship by Birth for Child Born in the UK

Getting British Citizenship?

British citizenship is not automatically granted to infants born in the UK. With the introduction of the British Nationality Act in 1981, having been born in the UK no longer gives British nationality. Children born in the UK may acquire a nationality, depending on their parents’ circumstances.



If either the child’s mother or father is a British citizen at the moment of his birth, or if one of the following applies, the child will immediately receive British nationality.

• Either the mother or the father of the child has established residency in the UK, which indicates that they have either received Indefinite Leave to Remain or a Settled Status under the EU Settlement Scheme.


Please take note that if these requirements are not completed at the time of birth, the child will not immediately receive British citizenship.

If a kid is born in the UK but does not already have British citizenship, they should apply for a visa as a dependent using the same process as their parents used.

In this situation, the youngster shouldn’t leave the UK until a British passport or UK immigration paperwork is produced.

The child may apply for British citizenship if one or both parents get British citizenship or establish residence in the country while the child is still a minor and present there.

The youngster must submit a registration application before applying for a British passport.
