Can I register a child aged under 18 as a British citizen? Children
This section provides details of how a person under 18 can register as a British citizen using application form MN1. Within this section, a person under 18 will be referred to as a child.
You should read the information in this section before you make an application for registration. You will need to pay a fee when you make your application. If you make an application for registration and it is unsuccessful, we will not refund your fee.
Good character requirement Eligibility
This page provides details about the good character requirement that must be met by anyone applying for British nationality unless:
they are under 10 years old when making the application; or are stateless and are applying on application form S1, S2 or S3; or they are a British overseas citizen, a British subject or a British protected person and are applying on application form B(OS). We consider you to be of good character if you show respect for the rights and freedom of the United Kingdom, have observed its laws and fulfilled your duties and obligations as a resident.
We will check with the police and may contact other government departments as part of our character check. By signing the application form you are giving your consent for us to contact these organisations to obtain information about you.
Changes to good character policy On 5 December 2007 the Home Secretary announced changes to the way that an applicant's good character will be assessed for the purposes of naturalisation and registration as a British citizen.
The changes took effect as from 1 January 2008. This page has been updated to include the changes.
Applications made on and after that date will normally be refused if the applicant has been convicted of a criminal offence and the conviction has not yet become 'spent' in accordance with the provisions of the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974.
Application forms and guides will be updated in due course.
Your financial background We will check that you pay income tax and National Insurance contributions. We may ask HM Revenue & Customs for confirmation of this. If you do not pay income tax through Pay As You Earn (PAYE) you should send a Self Assessment Statement of Account with your application.
If you have been declared bankrupt at any time you should give details of the bankruptcy proceedings. Your application is unlikely to succeed if you are an undischarged bankrupt.
Your criminal record We will carry out criminal record checks on all applications from people aged 10 and over.
You must also provide details of all civil proceedings which have resulted in a court order being made against you.
You must give details of all unspent criminal convictions. This includes road traffic offences but not fixed penalty notices (such as speeding or parking tickets) unless they were given in court. You must include all drink-driving offences. An explanation of unspent convictions is given below.
If you have an unspent conviction, your application for citizenship is unlikely to be successful. You should wait until the end of your rehabilitation period before applying.
What is an unspent conviction? If you have been convicted of a criminal offence you must declare your unspent convictions but do not need to declare ones that are spent. A conviction becomes spent after a certain period of time has passed (we call this the rehabilitation period). The length of time it takes for a conviction to become spent will depend on your sentence. It starts from the date on which you are convicted. The period may be shorter if you were aged under 18 at the time of your conviction.
If you have been sentenced to more than 30 months in prison for a single offence, this can never become spent. Your application for citizenship is therefore unlikely to be successful.
If you have been convicted of a criminal offence but the rehabilitation period has passed by the time you make your application you do not need to provide details of the conviction on your application form. If you were convicted of a further offence during the rehabilitation period of your original conviction, the rehabilitation period for your original conviction may be extended.
If you have been convicted of a criminal offence and the spent period has not passed you must include details of the conviction on your application form. If the conviction is unspent at the time of your application, it is unlikely that your application will be successful.
For further guidance on the rehabilitation period, please see Guide AN. Information on how a conviction becomes spent, and a chart providing examples of rehabilitation periods for various sentences, can be found in the Good Character section of this guide.
Offences for which you may go to court or are awaiting a hearing in court
You must provide details of any offence for which you may go to court for or are awaiting a hearing in court. This includes any offences for which you have been arrested and are waiting to hear if you will be formally charged.
If you are living in Scotland you must provide details of any recent civil penalties.
If are arrested or charged with an offence after you have made your application you must let us know.
Other things we will consider You must tell us if you have ever had any involvement in terrorism. If you do not regard something as an act of terrorism but others do or might, you must mention it when making your application.
You must also tell us if you have been involved in any crimes in the course of armed conflict including crimes against humanity, war crimes or genocide.
Widespread or systematic attacks on civilian human beings committed at any time (not just during armed conflict), as part of a government policy or a wide practice of atrocities tolerated or condoned by a government or self-appointed authority.This includes offences such as murder, torture, rape, and severe deprivation of freedom.Convictions for criminal offences may become 'spent' after specified periods of time from the date of conviction if there are no further convictions during that time. Spent convictions will be disregarded for certain purposes. They will not normally be taken into account when assessing whether someone is of good character. Convictions that are not yet spent are known as unspent convictions and will be taken into account when assessing good character.Serious breaches of the Geneva Conventions committed during an armed conflict. The Geneva Conventions are international treaties that set humanitarian standards, mainly for the treatment of civilians and prisoners of war. Examples of acts that may constitute a war crime are deliberate killing, torture, extensive destruction of property that is not necessary for military reasons, unlawful deportation, intentionally targeting civilians and taking hostages.Acts committed with the intention of totally or partly destroying a national, ethnic, racial or religious group.
Frequently Asked Questions What is the good character requirement? CloseThe law requires that a person aged 10 or over who is applying to become a British citizen must normally satisfy the Home Secretary that she or he is 'of good character' before the application can be granted. Does this apply to everyone? CloseNo. Those aged below 10 when they apply, and certain persons applying on the basis that they are currently stateless or have no other nationality apart from British overseas citizenship or the statuses of British subject or British protected person are not subject to this requirement. What checks do you make? CloseWe make checks with the police in all cases where the good character requirement applies. Additional checks may be made with other government departments and agencies, depending on the particular circumstances of the applicant. What if I have a criminal conviction? CloseIf you have a conviction which is not yet spent under the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1978, an application for citizenship made now is unlikely to be successful. We would therefore advise you to wait until the end of the rehabilitation period before making an application. How will I know when my conviction has become spent? CloseInformation about spent periods is contained in a leaflet 'Wiping the Slate Clean' which can be obtained from the Home Office, Direct Communications Unit, 2 Marsham Street, London, SW1P 4DF. My conviction will never be spent - can I still apply for citizenship? CloseYou may apply if you wish, but should bear in mind that an application in these circumstances is unlikely to be successful. I have a recent conviction for a minor offence. Should I still wait until the conviction has become spent before I apply for citizenship? Close We will normally disregard a single conviction for a minor offence resulting in a bind over, conditional discharge or relatively small fine or compensation order, if a person is suitable for citizenship in all other respects. By 'minor offences' we mean speeding or other 'regulatory' offences.
Offences involving dishonesty (for example theft), violence or sexual offences are not classed as minor offences. Drink-driving offences, driving while uninsured or disqualified are also not minor offences.
I applied before the Home Secretary announced these changes. How will they affect my application? CloseThe new policy applies to all applications made after 1 January 2008. If your application was received in the Home Office before that date, we will apply the previous policy as set out in the guide that accompanied your application form. When I got an application form and guide from the Home Office it said that I could apply after a clear period - will the old policy apply to me? CloseAll applications received after 1 January 2008 will be considered in accordance with the new policy. The information contained in our forms and guides is intended to help you decide whether you are eligible for citizenship, however, the forms and guides are not a complete statement of the law or policy and the information in them is subject to change. What if I am under investigation by the police but have not yet been charged, or have been charged but am still awaiting trial? CloseWe would advise that you wait until the matter has been resolved before considering whether to make an application for citizenship. What does 'of good character' mean? Close There is no definition of good character in nationality law, but we would normally accept that the requirement is met if:
- our enquiries with the police and other government departments reveal no cause for concern;
- there are no unspent convictions;
- there is no other information to cast doubt on the applicant's character.

To be able to register as a British citizen using application form MN1 the child must be under 18 on the day we receive the application. Once the child turns 18 he or she will need to apply for registration or naturalisation as an adult.
If the child meets the requirements for registration, you should go to the applying section for details of how to apply.
Children who have automatically become British citizens do not need to register. You should read the page Who has citizenship for more details.
There are several ways that a child can meet the requirements to register as a British citizen. Depending on the child's circumstances, they will be able to apply for registration as a British citizen by entitlement or discretion. These terms are explained below.
If the child has a right under British nationality law to apply and be registered as a British citizen this is an entitlement.
If the child does not have a right under British nationality law to apply and be registered as a British citizen, registration will be at our discretion. In these cases we will consider the circumstances of the child's case and whether it is reasonable for them to be registered as a British citizen. If the child is applying for registration at our discretion you should provide as much evidence as possible to support the case.
It is possible that some families include some children with an entitlement to register and others without. If an application is made from families in these circumstances you are asked to indicate on the form if you still wish to register the children who have an entitlement to British citizenship if other applications are unsuccessful. If you do so, the children will have different nationalities.
For all registrations, the child must:
be under 18 on the date we receive the application; and be of good character if they are 10 years or over on the date of application. The child must also meet the requirements of certain sections of the British Nationality Act 1981.
Children born in the United Kingdom Sections 1(3), 1(4) and 3(1) Children adopted abroad by parents who are British citizens Section 3(1) Children born before 1 July 2006 whose father is a British citizen but not married to their mother Section 3(1) Children of a parent in designated service or community institution service Section 3(1) Children whose parents have given up and subsequently resumed British citizenship Section 3(1) Children born abroad to parents who are British by descent and who have lived in the United Kingdom in the past Section 3(2) Children born abroad to parents who are British by descent and who are now living in the United Kingdom Section 3(5) Children born abroad after 13 January 2010 to a parent who is in the armed forces Section 4D Other cases where it is considered to be in the child’s best interests to be granted British citizenship
ahojte všetci chcela by som sa opýtať, že môj priateľ robí v UK a chceli by sme si vybaviť children benefit claim ...ale je tam bod s ktorým si nevieme dať rady. Keďže ja nebývam v UK som na Slovensku, ale môj priateľ UK býva aj pracuje... tak sme sa rozhodli že on bude poberať benifit...ale v dotazníku sa ma pýtajú na môj national insurance number ale ja ho nemám, a tak isto chcú aj mojej malej benefit number.. a neviem čo to mám napísať... za radu veľmi pekne ďakujem
