Stateless person may be able to register as a British citizen if they are not recognised as a citizen of any country - that is, if they are ‘stateless’.

To register all of the following must apply:

  • you’ve lived in the UK or an overseas territory for 3 years or more
  • one of your parents is a British citizen, subject or protected person
  • you were born outside the UK and qualifying territories on or after 1 January 1983

Qualifying territories are all the British overseas territories, except sovereign base areas of Akrotiri and Dhekelia (in Cyprus).

If you become a British citizen and you have children, they may automatically become British citizens but this depends on your circumstances. For example, if you’re a British citizen by descent you won’t be able to pass on British citizenship to your children.
