Applying for British citizenship can seem like a complicated and difficult process.

Whether you are hoping to register or naturalise as a British citizen or to find out whether you may already have automatically acquired British citizenship, we will provide you with the detailed guidance you need.

The team at Vanessa Ganguin Immigration Law is highly regarded in all the main legal guides and directories and we receive referrals from many other high-regarded law firms too. We have a wealth of experience in working in all matters of nationality and citizenship, which can be a particularly tricky area, affected by decades of different legislation.

Feel free to contact us to discuss your nationality and citizenship options or to talk through any immigration issues you or your family may want assistance with.

We do offer fixed fees where we can. More information on pricing can be found here.


Those who have lived in the UK continuously and lawfully for five years (three years if married to or in a civil partnership with a British citizen) may apply to naturalise subject to meeting certain requirements.

Our service includes advising you on meeting all aspects of the rules as well as meticulous preparation and submission of your application.
