Dear OTS Solicitors, I was born in Hong Kong in 1979 and I hold a BNO passport. My parents moved to the UK in 1980 and I lived there until 2006. I currently live in the Netherlands and I recently applied for British citizenship however it was just refused. The reason was due to a letter I supplied from the Vietnamese Government. I was required to get a letter to state that I did not have nor ever held Vietnamese citizenship (both my parents are from Vietnam). The Embassy advised me this is the only letter they could provide me, it stated that I never held or applied for a Vietnamese passport which the home office states was not sufficient. If I am able to get this specific statement letter, would a review be successful.Thanks in advance for any assistance you can provide.
