Anguilla Citizenship (Belonger) Status

by Denise
(United Kingdonm)

Just a quick query, one of my parents was born in Anguilla but has lived in the UK for over 40 years. I was born and raised in the UK as a child of an Anguillian.

Do I automatically qualify for citizenship?

Any help and advice in this area is greatly appreciated.

Ken's Answer I didn't know the answer, so I asked Eustella Fontaine, our Anguilla attorney. She says that you would have to make an application at the Immigration Department for "belonger" status.

The outcome depends on the details. It's not a sure thing. If you'd seriously like to get this status, I recommend contacting Eustella. Make sure you don't make any fatal mistakes.

No special deals for Belongers
by: Nori

There is no difference in hotel rates for Belongers, Barry.

Some restaurants do offer discounts for local RESIDENTS. You don't have to be a Belonger, just live there.

But I've never hard of discounts just for being a Belonger at a hotel or a restuarant.'

Hope that helps.

What are the hotel rates for someone with Belonger Status papers? Is it a flat rate at each hotel or a percentage off the regular hotel rates of the individual hotel? Thanks

If it's your mother, belonger status is easy
by: Anonymous

If it's your mother who was born in Anguilla then you should have no problem gaining your belonger status. You will need official copies of your mother's birth certificate, your birth certificate and your parents' marriage certificate (not sure why they ask for this).

My mum was born in Anguilla and I got my belonger status some 5 years ago. I've only just started to explore building something on the land (some of which overlooks the sea) my mum left my brother and me... just wished I'd thought of it sooner.
