I was born in the United Kindom in 1997, both of my parents were British, but in 2004 we moved to Australia where we have lived ever since. I became an Australian Citizen in 2008

I am now applying for a UK Citizenship, and the form is asking me the date range I was a British Citizen for. I know the start date was the day I was born, but when did my British Citizenship "expire"?


1 Answer 1


British citizenship does not expire. If you did not apply to renounce your British citizenship (and was approved), you are still a British citizen. You cannot "apply for" British citizenship as you already have it. As a British citizen, you can simply apply for a British passport at any time.
