Citizenship is membership in a nation or an independent state. Citizenship may be acquired by birth or from parents. Citizenship is given by the competent person, and given the conservation status of the person. Nationality is where you were born or what country you are in. The UK citizen has no doubt the nationality laws of most complexes in the world due to its former imperial power. British Nationality Act has its origins in medieval times. There has always been a distinction in English law between the subjects of the monarchy and the foreigners.
When the British Empire came into force, there remains a kind of citizenship, namely, a British subject. Nationality law has spread too many rules and most of what is written. This situation changed with the adoption of a British citizen and the state of rights of foreigners in 1914. This is the first time, codified the laws of Great Britain.
Registration is a simple way to obtain citizenship, but only certain people can get it. British Nationals (non-UK nationals) is a permanent resident of the United Kingdom or the right of residence to obtain British citizenship, after registration of a residence of five years in the United Kingdom.
In many parts of world who do not speak English, they use the word related to the nationality in the local language may be understood as synonymous with ethnicity. They (especially non-English speaking regions of the world), follow the principle of citizenship law. Citizenship can not be changed at least one generation, but can be adopted accepting an individual within a national community. This principle has the potential to create a legal consideration, instead of following the law.
