Hello
Thank you for your enquiry.
Human Rights considerations are usually taken into account in applications made to the Home Office.
Article 15 does not entitle a foreign national who chooses to renounce his/her nationality to acquire British citizenship. Article 15 simply protects individuals from the deprivation of his/her nationality or their right to change their nationality.
Please note that the acquisition of British citizenship is based on British Nationality Law.
I hope this clarifies your question.

Thanks for your response. I understand there are procedures when it comes to the acquisition of British passport. But what I want to understand is apart from been seen as threat to the nation, can there be a reason why someone may be prevented from taking up a British citizenship?

I will be glad to know what really goes into "good character requirements " and how it's been determined by the authorities

Thank you so much.
And finally what's your take on deportation since article 13 of UDHR permit all persons to leave their country to a different country and return 'if they wish'.
Must someone be forced to return home against their wish, and can the state been sue for abuse of human rights since article 30 prevent destruction of all the laws in the decleration?

Hello
Thank you for your enquiry.
Deportation and human rights issues are alawys controversial areas of debate. My opinion in these areas depends on the full circumstances.
I hope this helps.
