Further Nationality Enquiries,

Dear Syed Faghurudeen

Thank you for the email,

We can confirm a status letter is an opinion as only the courts can confirm a persons citizenship but a status letter plus the docs they provided at the time would form the basis of an application for a British Overseas Passport. Again HM Passport Office would then decide if that was enough, we just provided an opinion.

Indian Citizenship Acts are not within our remit to provide guidance on. You should enquire about that with the Indian authorities. The UK allow dual citizenship.

We certainly wouldn't agree or accept anything by e-mail. We definitely wouldn't agree without original evidence.

Further Nationality Enquiries,

Dear Syed Faghurudeen

Thank you for the email,

You applied to be registered as a British citizen under Section 4B, on the 13th March 2012, which was refused on the 30th April 2012, it was reconsidered on the 08th December 2015 and 15th September 2016 and the decision was maintained on each occasion.

If you feel you have further information that has not already been considered and that alters the decision to refuse, it is a matter for you to apply if you feels you meets all of the requirements in place, at the date of application.
