Stateless Persons, Scotland

Get in touch

A stateless person is one who is not recognised as a citizen of any country. This means they cannot benefit from the rights associated with being a citizen of a country.

There are various ways one can be made stateless. However, most stateless people are refugees.

If you are a stateless person, Jones Whyte immigration lawyers can advise you and help ensure your status is settled.

Stateless person – legal definition

Statelessness occurs in the UK if you are not recognised as a citizen of any other country and you do not have permission to live permanently in any country.

If this is the case, you can make a stateless application. To gain permission to stay in the UK as a stateless person, both conditions must be made.

These are:

  • You are not recognised as a citizen of a country.
  • You are unable to live permanently in any country.

Before making an application to remain as a stateless person, you must have had a claim for asylum refused.

Our experienced immigration lawyers can help you make an application to remain in the UK as a stateless person.

We will support you throughout the process and work to ensure issues are resolved in your favour.
