Dear OTS, My wife and I are from Belize. We have a son who was born in England during the time that I was at university in the UK in the 1990s. We are back in Belize, but what are the chances of our son getting UK citizenship?
Areas of Expertise:
Thank you for your question.
Your son may be eligible for British Citizenship if he was born in the UK after 1 January 1983 and 1 of his parents was a British citizen or settled here at that time. Alternatively, he may meet the criteria if neither of his parents were British citizens or had Indefinite Leave to Remain but he lived in the UK until he was 10 years or older and spent no more than 90 days outside the UK for each of the first 10 years of his life.
Someone from our office will be in touch with you shortly to discuss these and other possible options.
