Having 'right of abode' means you are allowed to live or work in the UK without any immigration restrictions; this means you won’t need a visa to come to the UK and there’s no limit on the length of time you can spend in the country.
All British citizens automatically have right of abode in the UK.
If you have a UK passport describing you as a 'British Citizen' or 'British subject with a right of abode', you won’t need to apply for a certificate of entitlement.
If your parents or grandparents were born in the UK, you will be able to obtain a right of abode or entry visa. This will allow you to work in the UK without sponsorship. These visas can be obtained from your local Visa Office or Consular Office. You will be required to provide your birth certificate along with the birth certificates for your parents/grandparents who were born in the UK. There is no fee for this type of visa.
The certificate goes into your passport and proves that you have the right to abode in the UK, but you will need to apply for a new one when your passport expires. To find out more about applying for the right to abode click here or you can download a form.
Please consult the checklist of supporting documents which you will also need to submit with your form to UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) in Liverpool.
A certificate of abode will cost you £223 if you apply from the UK. You will get a decision within six months of submitting your form.
To apply for your certificate of abode from outside of the UK, it will cost you £289.
