This question already has an answer here:
I intend to work and travel in/through the UK once I complete my degree, and I would like to know if I can apply for British citizenship.
I am an 18 year old (born 1997) South African, and I've lived in South Africa my entire life. My father is a UK citizen (born 1955), however he has lived in South Africa for 20+ years (after marrying my mother, a SA citizen).
My grandparents (on my fathers side) are both British, but served in the colonial service in Tanzania.
All my research thus far has yielded ambiguous forum answers, extortionate heritage tracing fees, and no clear answer. Any assistance would be greatly appreciated! :)
