Hello.

Im new in this forum and this is the first time i write here.

My grandfather was born in Wales in the begining of the century, and my father was born in Israel, in 1946, while the british mandat controlled Israel.

I was born in Israel.

Could i get a passport via my father/grandfather?

Thanks

Naaman

When were you born? Before or after 1 January 1983?

Also, was your paternal grandfather married to your grandmother?

Hi

First of all, thanks for the fast answer.

I was born after the 1st of Janary 1983. I was born in the end of June 1983.

My paternal grandfather (born in Wales) was married to my grandmother, but my mother and my father arent married.

Unfortunately, based on the information you provide, it appears that you are not a British citizen. You would probably have been British (by descent) if born before 1983 and if your parents were married.

Your father was a Citizen of the UK & Colonies (CUKC) by descent and became a British citizen on 1 January 1983.

Was your father with the British armed forces or British Government in Palestine in 1946?

My father was only born in 1946, and my grandfather wasnt with the British armed forces or British Government in Palestine.

Unfortunately, in that case you are not a British citizen. You would probably have been British if:

- your parents had been married; AND
- you were born before 1983

Assuming you are an Israeli citizen then you don't qualify for an Ancestry Visa either.

Sorry there isn't better news.

Hi all,

First of all, thanks for all of the information provided in the forum.


I was born in June 1983, in Israel. when i was born my father was married to a diffrent woman than my mother.
My mother and father were also born in Israel. they were never married, but i have a paper from an Israeli court (based on D.N.A. test) proving that he is my father.
My grandfather from my father's side was born in Wales in 1899, my father was born in Israel in 1944, and lived, worked and studied in the U.K. between 1970-1973.
I know that his other kids (from another wife) has british citizenship because of him.
I wanted to know whether i am entitled to a british citizenship? although i'm over 18, this page: http://www.ukba.home...obritishfather/ says that only from 2006 could a child of unmarried father register as a citizen.
As in 2006 i was already over the age of 18, so i had no option of submitting this request before the age of 18.
In the legitimacy it section in the home office site it mentions:

Israel
5.1.7... A child born to a married man and an unmarried woman was not forbidden by the Torah and is
called "a child of the unmarried" not a "bastard". Such a child is
treated as a "lawful child" (i.e. legitimate).

Thanks in advance :)

I don't believe that anything has changed since you made this query four years ago.
