You can register to become a British citizen if you fulfil all of the following criteria:

  • you were born in the UK on or after 1 January 1983
  • you are under 18 when you apply for registration as a British Citizen
  • one of your parents has become a British citizen or settled in the UK since you were born

An application for registration as a British Citizen by a child under 18 is made using application form MN1. This is a very common way of registering children as British Citizens as all immigrants whose children are born in the UK before one of the parents get Indefinite Leave to Remain (ILR) can register their children as British Citizens as soon as either parent acquires ILR status. There is no requirement to wait for 12 months after the grant of ILR to the parent(s) for the child to be registered as British Citizen.

There is no requirement in the Nationality laws for the child to have lawful visa status in the UK at the time of making an application for registration as a British Citizen under this category. It is very common under this category that an application for registration as a British Citizen is made without the child having to apply for leave to remain or Indefinite Leave to Remain (ILR) and being registered as British Citizen as soon as either parent of the child getting ILR.
