To register as a British citizen you must:

  • have been born in the United Kingdom; and
  • have been born on or after 1 January 1983; and
  • be 10 years of age or over; and
  • have spent no more than 90 days outside the United Kingdom in each of the first 10 years of your life.

It may be possible for the UKBA to make an exception to the requirement to have spent fewer than 90 days outside the United Kingdom. If you have exceeded this number of days but believe there are special circumstances, you should explain these on your application form.
