According to the British Nationality Act 1981 citizens of other countries can become British citizens if they fulfill the requirements for naturalisation. Many EEA nationals, living in the UK have been contacting us about the possibility of becoming British citizens.
The British passport will give you and your family members undeniable advantages of free movement and employment in the United Kingdom.
The process of application
As a European citizen you are eligible to obtain Permanent Residence after residing for five continus lawful years in the UK under EU regulations.
A Permanent Residence is equivalent to Indefinite Leave to Remain, however it only costs £65.
Once you have obtained your Permanent Residence there are no leave restrictions assigned to your status, therefore you can enter and exit the country at your discretion.
Note that if you are out of the country for more than 2 years your Permanent Residence is can be lost.
EEA nationals must comply with the following rules to be eligible for naturalization:
-The applicant must have been living in the UK for more than 6 years
-During the stay in the UK the applicant must have been exercising “Treaty Rights”
-The applicant must meet the residence requirements
-The applicant must pass the Life in the UK test
-The applicant must meet the English language test requirements

Once the applicants have met all the conditions and have obtained the naturalization certificate, they will be eligible to make an application for a British passport.
