British Citizenship Application through a British mother
People born to a British Mother before 1983
Unfortunately only people born to a British Mother after 1983 qualify automatically for a British Passport; however those born before 1983 have the right to apply to become British Citizens.
Upon being sworn in as a British Citizen, you will be issued with a Citizenship certificate, which can be sent off for a British Passport application.
How long does it take
Upon receipt of the application the Home Office will take about 3 to 6 months to process the application and send notification of where the swearing in ceremony will take place.
What does it cost
The fee for this application used to be 540 Pounds; luckily the Home office in their infinite wisdom has decided to do away with this exorbitant fee. There is however a fee of 80 Pounds to cover the swearing in fee. This needs to be paid by means of credit card form, which must accompany the application.
