Passportia is a specialist immigration and nationality firm independent of the UK government and regulated by the Office of Immigration Services Commissioner. Applications for UK visas and UK passports are made directly to the UK authorities, however the UK government does not give legal advice on making a claim or eligibility. In our experience, many people who are eligible to become British nationals do not realise they are eligible.
Passportia is a leading UK immigration and nationality law firm and is committed to providing the very best legal advice concerning UK nationality and UK immigration:
- Our extensive legal experience in passports and citizenship allows us to assist you in establishing and then proving if you are already a British citizen or other British national, or eligible to become one through registration. In our experience, many people in this situation are not aware of their privileged status.
- Our specialist immigration lawyers can assist individuals or their families who wish to migrate to the UK, extend their visas or who have run into a problem.
We aim to remove the complexity and uncertainty from the process of proving your nationality, applying for visas or naturalisation and we are able to help with any of the categories listed below.

We also specialise in claims to British nationality, including naturalisation, registration and Status Tracing:

Extending your visa in the UK
If you are already in the UK, it is important that you do not overstay your leave or visa. In almost every visa category (unless you are a citizen of a European Union/EEA country) you must extend your leave or visa before it expires, otherwise there can be serious problems for future applications. The Home Office regularly changes the rules and the requirements to extend your visa may have changed or become more difficult since your last visa was issued. You should prepare for an extension at least 2 months before expiry.
