    can British Nationality Overseas BNO apply for Indefinite after 5 years

    Raju dai,
    I have a friend who is born in HongKong and holds BNO Brtitish National Overseas passport. Currently she is here in england since 24 April 2004. I have heard that these BNO passport holders can apply for Indefinite entry after 5 years of continuous stay in england. Is it true? Could you please clarify.

    k garne raju dai, hamro nepali society ma rumors nai dherai, so i thought of asking you as being a uk certified solicitor.

    namaste

    Dear Viewer

    In relation to your question, I understand that your friend is a BN(O) passport holder.She is entitled to register as a British citizen after living in the UK for five years. Basically she will have to satisfy residence requirements that she is legally in the UK at the beginning of five year period ending with the date of the application provided that she is not outside the UK for more than 450 days; in the last 12 months of that five year period she was not outside the UK for more than 90 days. her stay in the UK was not subject to any time limit under the immigration laws and she was not, any time in that five year period in the UK,in breach of the Immigration Rules by virtue of section 4 of British Nationalty Act 1981.

    Dear Shova bahini
    First I would like to extend my sincere apology to you as I was escaped for couple days due to long holiday. I put my effort to answer your querry as much as I can.
    The only route for British citizenship is registration under section 4(2) of the BNA 1981, following five years residence in the UK that requires you to be free of time limits on your stay in the UK on the day you apply.
    You have not clearly stated on what basis you are staying in the UK. Normally the Immigration Rules will apply to BN(O) passport holder. You are not entitled to apply for British citizen on basis of your physical presence in the UK. If you are on a student visa you can apply for ILR on basis of 10 years lawful residence. The only option I can advise you is to switch to either Tier 1 (General) as highly skilled worker or work permit. Even that will take you for period of five years to apply for ILR. I am sorry that I cannot advise anything more positive towards your question.

    Please check your BN(O) passport and what is contained an endorsement in your passport to the effect that you have right of abode in the UK or right to land? Do you also hold Nepalese passport or you do not have any nationality except BN(O) passport? I need specific information that where were you living prior to 4th February 1997?

    Many Thanks
