British Overseas Territories

Citizenship Campaign

BOTC Campaign - What's this about?

Our campaign is about securing legislative amendments to British nationality law from the government of the United Kingdom. The British Nationality Act 1981 ('BNA') treats certain groups of children, now adults, in an unequal and discriminatory manner when trying to claim citizenship by descent. 

 

We seek citizenship equality for illegitimate children born before 1 July 2006 to British Overseas Territories fathers. 

 

We seek citizenship equality for children born abroad to British Overseas Territories mothers before 1 January 1983.

This discrimination affects the British Overseas Territories: Anguilla, Bermuda, British Virgin Islands, Cayman Islands, Falkland South Georgia Islands, Gibraltar, Montserrat, Pitcairn Island, St. Helena, Ascension & Tristan da Cunha, & Turks and Caicos Islands.
