The guidance from the Secretary of State on what historical legislative unfairness means has not yet been released. That is why the agency refers to October and not April.

Re: Citizenship by Double Descent /Discretion

To the extent there is a waitlist, it is entirely on the agency's end as they cannot submit any registration applications until the guidance is published. There is always a waitlist on the...

Re: Citizenship by Double Descent /Discretion

You will probably be able to register once the guidance is released. The group marketing this solution are doing so before the Secretary of State issues guidance on what "historical legislative...

Re: Citizenship by Double Descent refused (mom born in Rhodesia)

Passport examiners routinely deal with Romein applications from SA. The issue was that the passport examiner made an error that might not have happened had the person he used to submit the claim said...

Re: First adult UK passport rejected, needs help

There was no ETJ in China in 1977 when you were born so this does not apply to you. The Crown exercised extra-territorial jurisdiction over British subjects in China from 26 June 1858 to 19 May 1943....

Re: How to Prepare for Passport Application (Double Descent)

I used them for a (relatively complex) application that required a balance of probabilities assessment. I know my application would not have been successful if I had applied without them. This is not...

Re: How to Prepare for Passport Application (Double Descent)

What year were you born?

Gable would not add value to a case where the records showing recruitment in the UK and release.

Re: Citizenship by Double Descent refused (mom born in Rhodesia)

You are welcome, I hope that the decision is reversed quickly. I believe you have to send the documents in and in any case, it would be a good idea to do so so that the examiner comes to the correct...

Re: Citizenship by Double Descent refused (mom born in Rhodesia)

I examined the Form NR/reconsiderations refund policy and "Where an application for a certificate of registration or naturalisation, or for a certificate of entitlement, has been refused and is...

Re: Citizenship by Double Descent refused (mom born in Rhodesia)

That is unfortunate. I suppose it is a choice between submitting UKM again - with the justification - and waiting a year or paying for form NR (along with the justification) for what should be a...

Re: Romein ... Commonwealth ... Rhodesia

Do you know how your mother and father became CUKCs/British citizens? Was there some registration route used or was it just automatic acquisition from your grandparents? I know that both would be...

Re: Romein ... Commonwealth ... Rhodesia

What year did your grandparents (or only parents) leave South Africa for Rhodesia?

Re: Romein ... Commonwealth ... Rhodesia

The reason that BNA 1948 5(b) applied only to births in foreign countries (the section your question is about), and not Commonwealth countries, is interesting. Those born in Commonwealth countries...

Re: Citizenship by Double Descent refused (mom born in Rhodesia)

You're welcome. You could also register a complaint with them stating that your caseworker did not adhere to the Romein decision when evaluating your case. You will receive a response within 20 days....

Re: Citizenship by Double Descent refused (mom born in Rhodesia)

No, your mother's birthplace is irrelevant because at birth your mother was a CUKC by descent born to a father who was born in the UK (BNA 1948 5(1)). Please let us know when you learn the outcome of...

Re: Citizenship by Double Descent refused (mom born in Rhodesia)

The caseworker's finding that "As your mother was born outside the UK and Colonies, she would have held British subject:CUKC status by descent at the time of your birth. She would therefore not have...

Re: Citizenship by Double Descent refused (mom born in Rhodesia)

Your grandparents were married when your mother was born? Rejection seems odd since South Africa was not a commonwealth country when you were born.

Hopefully, BritInParis can answer this since he...

Re: Citizenship by Double Descent refused (mom born in Rhodesia)

Ask Gamble for the text of argument that he submitted to the Home Office with your application. Without this, it would be speculation as to why your application failed. It would also help us...

Re: First adult UK passport rejected, needs help

Your father's situation is addressed in Fransman's British Nationality Law, considered an authoritative text that is referenced in some Home Office guidance documents. It states that a person in...

No, it does not help you because the certificate would only be useful in showing that your father (and grandfather) remained British Subjects because it excepted them from the general...

Re: First adult UK passport rejected, needs help

This finding is in error. Your father and grandfather did not lose British Subject status due to 2(1)(b), thanks to your grandfather's birth in a place with ETJ as I detailed extensively further...

What is the text of the original rejection letter? What was your argument in support of your application?

Were you able to find the Imperial Certificate of Naturalisation or not?

Unfortunately, that doesn't apply because he isn't a British national and he isn't normally living in Ukraine.
