***Advance apologies if this has been covered somewhere that I didn't find in my search.***

With the UK looking increasingly likely now to actually & stupidly persist with leaving the EU, does anybody know if a 1960s birth in our SBA at Akrotiri might qualify that individual for any kind of avenue leading to Cypriot (& hence EU) citizenship? With advance thanks for helpful replies, and hello to all from here in western Canada.

UK Forces have always had their own independent registration system for births and hence the person in question will most likely be a UK Citizen.
I say most likely because another member asked a similar question recently and although the birth was registered by Army authorities abroad, they had problems
obtaining UK citizenship at a later stage.

Akrotiri is UK sovereign territory. Birth there is not the same as birth in The Republic of Cyprus.

In 1960 the War Office still had imperial delusions !
