Many children born in, or who have been living in the United Kingdom for ten years, are entitled to be registered as British Citizens.  

Such registration involves the payment of an application fee which currently amounts to the sum of £1,012.

Sharan Rupra of Kangs Solicitors reports upon events which may result in the reduction in the amount payable upon such an application.

The Circumstances | Kangs Immigration Procedure Advisory Solicitors

  • In the case of R (The Project for the Registration of Children as British Citizens & Ors) v Secretary of State for the Home Department [2019] it was ruled that the Home Office had failed to consider the ‘children’s best interests’ under Section 55 of the Borders, Citizenship and Immigration Act 2009 and that the level of fees imposed was unlawful.
  • The Home Office has been requested to consider the level of fees imposed upon Children’s Naturalisation Applications with a view to reducing them and to introduce a procedure to consider fee waiver applications in respect of circumstances where a child’s parents are financially unable to pay the fee required.
