star this property answer text <p>The Home Office has no current plans to specifically review the fees policy applicable to stateless persons applying to register as a British citizen, however the Home Office keeps its fees for immigration and nationality under review.</p><p>The Home Office has no current plans to produce a specific impact assessment in respect of the fee for a child or young person born stateless to register as a British citizen. An assessment of the impact of all border, immigration and citizenship (BIC) fees was published as an associated document to the Immigration and Nationality Fees (Regulation) 2018. In response to a recommendation from the Independent Chief Inspector of Borders and Immigration the Department will consider publication of fee-related Policy Equality Statements on a case by case basis going forward.</p><p>Statistics on the UK’s resident population and on births by nationality of parent are a matter for the Office for National Statistics.</p><p>The Home Office stateless leave policy is designed to assist those who are unable to return to their country of former habitual residence because they are stateless and no longer have a right of residence there. This also reflects our obligations under the UN Stateless Conventions by providing a means for stateless persons in the UK to access their basic human rights and is part of our efforts to address wider global issues facing stateless persons. Leave to remain applications to stay in the UK as a stateless person are free of charge.</p><p>There are citizenship routes for children who are born in the UK: if their parent becomes British or settled, or if they live in the UK for the first ten years of their life. In addition there are provisions for stateless children which allow us to meet our obligations under the 1961 Convention.</p><p> </p>

star this property answer text <p>The good character requirement for children was subject to parliamentary scrutiny when it was introduced by Section 58 of the Immigration, Asylum and Nationality Act 2006. It has also been the subject of inspection by the Independent Chief Inspector of Borders and Immigration (ICIBI). In response to recommendations in his 2017 report a number of adjustments were made to the policy clarifying that a child’s best interests must be taken into account when considering an application for registration as a British citizen. Updated guidance to reflect these changes was published in January 2019.</p><p>In addition, the good character requirement was the subject of a Policy Equality Statement, demonstrating compliance with the Public Sector Equality Duty, when the British Nationality Act 1981 (Remedial) Order 2019 was laid.</p> more like this
