How did your father obtain his UK citizenship please?
Where and when was your father born please?Tom
Thanks for your question. I will try to help.
I’m afraid that if your father was born outside the UK then he would have obtained Uk citizenship by descent. This means that he was not automatically entitled to citizenship by being born in the UK and instead his father’s citizenship had to descend one generation to your father.
This means that your father cannot automatically pass on his citizenship to you if you were born outside the UK. I assume that you are over 18 years of age, but please let me know if you are not.This means that you are unfortunately not entitled to citizenship.
However, if you are a Tanzanian citizen and you wished to come to the UK to work and eventually settle/naturalise as a UK citizen the you would appear to be eligible for an Ancestry Visa if you can prove that your grandfather was actually born in the UK:
My goal is to provide you with a good service. If you feel you have received anything less, please reply back. Please remember to leave positive feedback using the stars at the top of the page.
At some point before your siblings were born did your father live in the UK for three years or more?
In that case they are in the same position as you, which means that you are not entitled to UK citizenship but you can probably apply for an ancestry visa in order to come to the UK, work and then ultimately apply for indefinite leave to remain after 5 years in the UK and then naturalise as a UK citizen one year after obtaining indefinite leave to remain.
Please remember to leave positive feedback.Tom
