It is a great pleasure for me, as your Governor, to hand over Certificates of Naturalisation to a total of 52 people who have made their homes here in the Virgin Islands. Today is your day, marking a key milestone in your quest for British Citizenship. Many of you will have harboured this ambition for years. I hope and imagine that all of you are feeling a sense of fulfillment and satisfaction in attaining this citizenship status, conferring as it does the right to carry a BVI passport and to apply for a full British passport.
All applications should be submitted at the Civil Registry & Passport Office.
Cross out any mistakes. Do not use correction fluid. If you make more than three mistakes on any line or do not provide a clear signature in section 6, you will need to fill a new form.
No, we cannot issue a belongers card in a name you have not legally acquired. The name you enter on your application, should match your birth, baptismal or marriage certificate and deed poll if applicable. If it does not, it could delay your application.
Please complete an application form and submit to the Civil Registry & Passport Office, along with supporting documents evidencing the change. This applies to a change in your name, photo (including where you cannot be recognised from your current passport photo).
If your belongers card is damaged, you may bring it to the Civil Registry & Passport Office immediately and apply for a new one. Your belongers card is a valuable document. Keep it safe at all times and be sure it does not get lost, stolen or damaged. It is designed to cope with normal wear and tear.
No, you will not be required to submit supporting documents for cards issued by the Civil Registry & Passport Office in the past, provided that your records are current.
