Sa citizen want aquire british citizenship

edited October 2010 in - Britain and Ireland
I'm a SA citizen with a SA passport.
I went to the UK on a working holisay visa in 2006.
Is there any way to aquire British or EU citizenship?

    Hi Janette,
    I've heard it's quite difficult for South Africans to acquire British citizenship unless one of your parents or grandparents was born in the UK. have a look at the Work Permits page on it has some useful info about the new points system that the UK has put into place. I'd say that it would probably be easier to get a job in the UK and live and work there for four years and then apply for UK residency...once you've got that you can try the citizenship route.
    Good luck :)
