Briefing on Fees for the Registration of Children as British Citizens

PRCBC & Amnesty UK 2017 revised briefing on the fee for children’s registration (citizenship) applications, which closes with three recommendations:

  • That the profit element of the fee be removed
  • That a fee waiver be introduced on grounds of inability to pay
  • That no fee be charged in cases where a child is assisted by a local authority

We are grateful to our funders:

Paul Hamlyn Foundation for funding some of the complex legal casework service that we deliver for  young persons.
