British citizenship

The most sought after dream of any individual would be to become a British citizen. SInce the UK is the 5th largest world economy and ranks 4th on the Global Innovation Index, it is therefore the most lucrative place to be in order to have a very bright future in work and study.

But since the UK left the European Union, the difficulties for EU citizens have risen in many critical ways.

Now that European residents seeking for British citizenship must have complete documentation and eligibility proves to meet Naturalisation application requirements.

In this article, we will be discussing the barriers to British citizenship for EU citizens.

Before we begin understanding the barriers to citizenship, let us have a look at the advantages of British citizenship to EU citizens.

Advantages of British citizenship

The UK offers a secure home environment to EU citizens. EU residents can seek for permanent residency status under EU legislation, but the British government has stated that this status will expire at the end of December 2020.

Problems with the citizenship for EU citizens

There are some remaining barriers to EU citizens acquiring British citizenship that are not addressed by the new settled status the UK is introducing after Brexit, and which can and should be addressed as quickly as practicable so that children born in the UK can become British as relatively easily as possible.

Let us see some of the barriers:

Proving the lawful residence

There are four important requirements of lawful residence that must be met by EU citizens for making a naturalisation application to obtain British citizenship.

Being settled in the UK

To naturalise as a British citizen, the applicant must demonstrate that he or she is not “subject under the immigration regulations to any restriction on the duration for which he or she may remain in the United Kingdom” (paragraph 1(2)(c) or 3(c) of Schedule 1 of the British Nationality Act 1981). The Home Office interprets this provision as needing permanent residence in the case of persons relying on EU law to live in the UK.

Pre- lawful residence

An candidate for naturalisation must establish a period of prior lawful residence dating back from the date of application in addition to being settled at the time of application:

If you’re married to a British citizen, you’ll have to wait three years.

If you’re not married to a British citizen, you’ll have to wait five years.

It is suggested that you seek legal advice from immigration specialists to represent your case while applying for British citizenship as a EU nation. SInce the barriers are evident, you need expert, bespoke advice in your case to avoid any hiccups and hassles in your application.
