Someone who holds British citizenship is entitled to a British passport and has various other rights, such as the right to vote in general elections. A British citizen can come and go from the UK without any restriction.
In most cases an adult will acquire British citizenship by the process of “naturalisation”. This requires that the applicant has spent a number of years lawfully in the UK and that they have already acquired settlement (ie indefinite leave to remain or permanent residence).
There are also requirements about not having spent too much time outside the UK during the qualifying period, and about English language and the Life in the UK test. There is also a “good character” requirement, ie the applicant should not have any recent criminal convictions or similar.
Children may be able to acquire British citizenship by the process of “registration”. The rules about this are much more flexible, and are largely dependent on the situation of the parents. Even if a child does not meet all the stated rules the Home Office may nevertheless employ discretion and grant the application anyway.
A British citizen does not need to hold a British passport – although it may be useful for identification purposes. A British passport application is different from an application for British citizenship and it is a purely administrative application, not really an immigration application.

My wife’s visa situation was extremely difficult as she came into the UK on a visa waiver, she is from Iran and although I am British, my employment was in China. Adel (the lawyer) was extremely helpful and paid great attention to detail. An example of this is that the pay slips from China were extremely difficult to obtain and when I got them, they were not exactly how they should be. Adel very patiently explained how they should be and ensured that each and every document was at the highest possible standard for the Home Office. My wife was able to get a residence permit and if we had attempted to apply for the visa without the help of GET UK VISA, we would not have had such a positive ending. I truly thank them for all the help and guidance they offered us throughout a very tricky situation which led to the Best possible outcome. Thank you again Adel and GET UK VISA.
