I'm trying to apply for my first British passport and have been reading various gov.uk sites for guidance to do it correctly. I have completed the online form, confirmed my identity, and I am at the stage where I'm ready to send supporting documentation - birth certificate, EU passport, and parents passport from when I was born.
I was born in 1986 in the UK, have lived here my whole life, and both of my parents are from an EU/EEA country and I only have an EU passport. My Grandparents are not British either.
One of the pages suggests that I may need to apply to the EU Settlement Scheme and under "Who should apply - you’re an EU, EEA or Swiss citizen"
"Except in a few cases, you need to apply if: you’re an EU, EEA or Swiss citizen .... This means you need to apply even if you: were born in the UK but are not a British citizen - you can check if you’re a British citizen if you’re not sure".
On this page it states:
If at least one of your parents was a citizen of an EU or EEA country when you were born You’re automatically a British citizen if when you were born at least one of your parents was both: a citizen of a country that was in the EU or the EEA and had full free movement rights living in the UK, and working or studying here
Based on the above I should be a British citizen, however I don't know how I would prove that my parents were living in the UK when I was born. Is there any way for me to know whether I'm considered a British Citizen or is this something I need to prove myself?
