Taking Parent As Dependent
Posted 21 February 2011 - 08:31 PM
Planning to move to the UK in July on an ancestry visa. My mom is 76, born in SA to a Scottish born mom. I am an only child,
She is dependent on us financially. She in fact worked for my business until recently.
What is the procedure to apply for her? And what supporting docs are needed?

Would she be eligible for UK citizenship?

What does this mean for someone living in South Africa?

However I may be wrong and this being a complex area it would be worth consulting an advisor who can examine it in detail. If your mother is a British citizen she can apply to the HO for a nationality status document.
In the meantime you might find some of the chapters of the HO Nationality Instructions of interest.
From Volume 2 Section 2 "UK and Colonies" and "Dominions".
From Volume 1 Chapter 2 and chapter 43 on automatic aquisition and their annexes.
See also chapter 57 and Guidance ROA as regards whether your mother might have a right of abode. (Somethign to check with an advisor if she is not a British citizen.)
Also chapter 7 on registration as a British citizen (in addition to the link above on that subject).
