Details

British nationals of Nepalese descent may be eligible to register as British citizens under the British Nationality (Hong Kong) Act 1997 or Section 4B of the British Nationality Act 1981. Nepalese law did not permit dual nationality before 26 November 2006 and now does so only in very limited circumstances.
