I am a British citizen who was under 18 when my father applied for naturalization in 1979. I (as well as my father) was then given citizenship when the naturalization came through in 1982.

Am I a British citizen by descent or not?

  • I believe you are a British citizen otherwise than by descent, but the British Nationality Act 1981 is very complicated indeed. – phoog Feb 16 '18 at 15:32
  • There are a few users on Expatriates who may be able to offer an authoritative answer. – phoog Feb 17 '18 at 6:17
