British Overseas Territories Nationality & Citizenship Campaign
BOTC Campaign - About
We are campaigning to pressure the United Kingdom government and its fourteen British overseas territories, (specifically, the Caribbean located: Anguilla, Bermuda, British Virgin Islands, Cayman Islands, Montserrat, and Turks and Caicos Islands) to provide equal & equitable recognition for citizenship & nationality rights of children born outside-of-marriage, born abroad, before 1 July 2006 to British overseas territories fathers.
In 2014, after a long campaign by Tabitha Sprague from the group U.K. Citizenship Equality Campaign. The same category of children born to mainland U.K. born fathers ONLY had this discrimination removed by amendments to the British Nationality Act 1981 "BNA" through Section 65 Immigration Act 2014. It provided for them, for the first time, a retrospective registration route to allow them to hold British nationality and a passport by descent.
