British Nationality Applications

  • You must be over 18 and living in the UK for the past five years (or three years if married to or a Civil Partner of a British Citizen)
  • Good Character – this will include an assessment of your Tax and National Insurance payment history. A criminal record check will also be undertaken, if you have any convictions which are spent under the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 these are protected by this statute and therefore do not need to be revealed
  • Sound Mind – this will be assessed and where necessary a further examination will be made
