Section 8 - Declaration
Warning: to give false information on this form knowingly or recklessly is a criminal offence
punishable with up to 3 months’ imprisonment or by a fine not exceeding £5000 or both.
(Section 46(1) of the British Nationality Act 1981, as amended).
8.1 I (full name in block letters)
declare that, to the best of my knowledge and belief, the information given in this application is
correct. I know of no reason why the child should not be registered as a British citizen. I promise
to inform the Home Secretary in writing of any change in circumstances which may affect the
accuracy of the information given whilst this application is being considered by the Home Office.
I understand that information given by me will be treated in confidence, but may be submitted for
checking against records held by other Government departments, the Security Service and other
agencies, local authorities and the police, where it is necessary for immigration or nationality
purposes, or to enable these bodies to carry out their functions.
I understand that I may be liable for prosecution if I have knowingly or recklessly provided false
or incomplete information.
I authorise the HM Revenue & Customs to provide the UK Visas and Immigration with any
information relevant to this application, and with any information needed to check the information
I have provided. I understand that any information provided to the HM Revenue & Customs in
connection with this application may be used by them for the purpose of their statutory functions.
8.2 I confirm that I have read and understood the guide MN1
8.3 I confirm that I have enclosed the appropriate registration fee
8.4 I understand that if I withdraw my application, or it is refused, only part of the fee will
be returned to me
8.5 I confirm that I have enclosed the appropriate documents
8.6 Where I have provided a photocopy of my parent’s, adoptive parent’s or
grandparent’s British passport, I confirm that, to the best of my knowledge and belief, it is
a complete and full copy of that original document.
8.7 I understand that a certificate of citizenship may be withdrawn if it is found to
have been obtained by fraud, false representation or concealment of any material
fact, or if someone registered as a British citizen goes on to engage in conduct
which is seriously prejudicial to the public good.
8.8 [For parents applying for British citizenship at the same time as their child] I still
want my child to be registered as a British citizen even if my own application for British
citizenship is refused.

wish to proceed under section 3(2) (see page 9 of Guide MN1).
