Naturalisation Flowchart: how to become a British citizen

Freedom of movement is integral to Lush as a business, allowing us to put the right people in the right positions regardless of nationality and forge equal relationships with suppliers in remote areas of the world.​

How will Brexit affect individuals and families living in the UK?

Currently, much of what we know about the UK's withdrawal from the EU is uncertain, such as the agreements we will strike with other countries and what Brexit means for British nationals living abroad and EEA nationals living in the UK. Britain will be the first member of the United Nations to leave the European Union, meaning there is no precedent to fall back on and use as a template.

Consequently, Lush will continue to take steps to support staff members affected by the UK's withdrawal from the EU, as we navigate this complex political situation together.

Becoming a British citizen

For those who want to achieve British citizenship, this simple flowchart has been designed to guide you through the process of naturalising which will enable you to hold a British passport. You will need to already have a document certifying permanent residence or a residency card to apply for British citizenship before you can naturalise.

It is important to note that under the nationality laws of some countries, a person will automatically lose their nationality if they become a citizen of another country. To see if this affects you, you should contact the Embassy or High Commission of the country you are a citizen of. If you are currently regarded as a refugee in the UK, you will also lose this status when you naturalise. 

Here's a simple guide to determine whether you are eligible for British citizenship.
