If you can’t afford the fee
You can apply for a ‘fee waiver’. If you get a fee waiver, you will not have to pay the fee.
To apply for a fee waiver, you have to show you don’t have enough income and savings to pay for both the fee and essential costs like food and rent. You’ll need to send documents showing your income and spending for the last 6 months, for example your:
- pay slips
- bank statements for all your accounts
- tenancy agreement
- utility bills
Registering a Child Born in the UK as a British Citizen after 10 years
Section 1(4) of the British Nationality Act 1981 states that any child born in the UK whose parents are not British or settled in the UK shall have an entitlement to register as a British citizen provided that in each of the first ten years of the child’s life, the number of days spent outside the UK does not exceed 90.
requirements to register a child born in the uK as a British citizen after 10 years
Generally the child will need to show that they:
- have been born in the United Kingdom on or after 1 January 1983;
- they are 10 years of age or over;
- have spent no more than 90 days outside the United Kingdom in each of the first 10 years of your life; and
- be of good character.
It may be possible for the Home Office disregard 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.
As the applicant has an entitlement to be registered as a British citizen if the requirements are met, the absence of parental consent (in cases where the applicant is a minor) should not be a reason for refusal. It is good practice to gain consent of all those with parental responsibility for the child and it should normally be requested, but this is not mandatory. If the consent is not gained it is not a reason for refusing the application.
