Right of Abode | Obtain Certificate of Entitlement to Right of Abode in your Passport
All British citizens have right of abode in the UK. Person with the right of abode can work and live in the UK without any restrictions. Right of abode can be stamped in a non-British passport with a “Certificate of Entitlement” sticker. This used to be called a “Certificate of Patriality”. In some cases a person with right of abode is eligible to become a British citizen by registration under laws enforced after 2001.
