This is great news from the Home Office Minister, accepting the terms of the Chagos Islanders Amendment means this Amendment will be part of the Nationality and Borders Bill, when the Bill is made law, and we no longer have to fear that the Government will remove our Amendment. Chagossian descendants will be granted BOTC and British Citizenship when the Bill is finalised.


Verzion Kréol:


Enn grand moment finn passé, gouvernment anglais finn accepté provision de député Henry Smith pou tou descendants Chagossians gagne reconnaître com British Overseas Territories Citizens et aussi British Citizen et alors, descendants Chagossians pou gagne zot nationalité Britanik - dir merci a zot bann grandparents ki natifs.


Bann adult là-haut l'âge de 18 ans pou ena 5 ans pou faire zot application kouma sa la loi la passé.


Bann enbas l'age de 18 ans pou ena disska zot gagne 23 ans pou zot faire zot application.


Bann ti descendants ki p née asterla quand sa la loi la passé pou ena disska l'âge de 23 ans pou faire zot application.


Home Office UK p travail pou mett bann procédures en plass au plu vit possible pou ki descendants Chagossians kapav faire zot ban application. Zot pou annonce plus détails et zot pou faire koné quand sa 5 ans la p commencé.


Aster nou atann Bill passé et nou atann Home Office lance date pou comence zot application et tou bann form ki zot pou bizin. Nou p expect Bill pou passé disska la fin Mai. Alors enkor enn ti patience, pa vinn UK lor zot passport Moricien.
