This route is for those children born in the UK and have remained stateless to apply for British citizenship by registration. ‘Stateless person’ means someone who is not considered as a national by any state under the operation of its law.
In order to be eligible to register as a British Citizen, the stateless child must satisfy the following requirements.
The Schedule 2 of the British Nationality Act 1981 provides the statutory confirmation that a person who is stateless can be registered as a British Citizen if they meet the above conditions. In addition to this, in the case of MK (India) Statelessness EWHC  1365 (Admin), the high court has reaffirmed this position. The court also confirmed that the fact that a child can apply for ‘Indian citizenship’ is irrelevant. The applicant is expected to provide evidence that they are not national of any other country in order to ensure statutory evidence requirements are met.
