  British Overseas Territories Act 2002 - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
It further grants, from 21 May 2002, British citizenship to anyone holding British Overseas Territories citizenship on that date (with the exception of those solely connected with the Cyprus Sovereign Base Areas), whereas previously this was only available to people from Gibraltar and the Falkland Islands.
Those acquiring British overseas territories citizenship after 21 May 2002 may usually be registered as British citizens under s4A of the 1981 Act.
While citizens of all the Overseas Territories now have the right of abode in the UK, this is not reciprocal, as UK citizens visiting Overseas Territories are subject to local immigration controls, and require residence or work permits.

 Overseas Territories
Overseas territories should be distinguished from crown dependencies (the Channel Islands and the Isle of Man, which have a different constitutional relationship with the United Kingdom), and protectorates (which were not formally under the sovereignty of the United Kingdom).
Overseas territories have never been considered integral parts of the United Kingdom, and have never had representation in the British Parliament, on the grounds that they are separate jurisdictions.
By this Act, the redefined status of all British territories was evident.

This is the effect of the commencement of the British Citizenship provision of the British Overseas Territories Act 2002, which has already re-named British Dependant Territories Citizenship (BDTC) as British Overseas Territories citizenship.
The Act provides that BDTCs except those whose BDTC status derives solely from their connection with the sovereign base areas of Akrotiri and Dhekelia in Cyprus, become British citizens on 21 May. People born in the territories from that date will be both BCs and BDTCs from birth.
Applications for British Citizen passports must be made as first time applications, with a countersigned application form, two identical countersigned passport photos (download our guide to taking a good passport photo as a pdf) and original supporting documents.

 Ilois   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-09)
The Ilois, numbering some 2000 people at the time, were expelled by the British Government between 1967 and 1973, first to the island of Peros Banhos, 100 miles away from their homeland, and then, in 1973, to Mauritius and the Seychelles (for the relationship between the Chagos Archipelago and Mauritius, see Chagos Archipelago).
Their case was brought to the High Court of Justice in London by a British firm of solicitors, Sheridans, and on November 3 2000 the High Court ruled in their favor, stipulating that they should be allowed to return to their homeland.
On 21 May, 2002, the British Foreign Affairs Secretary Jack Straw signed a document conferring British citizenship upon the Ilois, later implemented in "Section 6: The Ilois: Citizenship" of the British Overseas Territories Act 2002.

 Overseas Territory Residents Get British Citizenship Option, by Amanda Banks, Tax-News.com, London   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-09)
Following the granting of Royal Assent to the British Overseas Territories Act 2002 in February of this year, residents of Overseas Territories, which include offshore jurisdictions such as the Cayman Islands, the British Virgin Islands, Anguilla, Bermuda, and Turks and Caicos, have been granted dual citizenship and permission to apply for British passports.
The status of UK nationals living in Overseas Territories is unlikely to change, however, due to strict immigration requirements and limited space and resources in the majority of such regions.
British citizenship, with its rights of travel, work, and abode will not be reciprocated and therefore this endorsement is necessary,' he explained.

 The Head Heeb: Involuntary ignorance
On the other, Pitcairn is not part of the United Kingdom and, prior to the British Overseas Territories Act 2002, its people couldn't automatically acquire British citizenship.
And although the Pitcairn Supreme Court ruled in April that the Bounty mutineers brought British law to Pitcairn as part of their birthright, it was not explicitly incorporated by ordinance until after 1970.
The law is presumed to be available to every citizen, and it is part of a citizen's duty to learn the law before acting; otherwise, individuals would be able to selectively avoid certain laws by claiming not to know of them.

 Cayman Net News: Brits can run for Assembly   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-09)
A motion was passed this July to recommend to the UK government that section 18 of the Constitution be amended so as to exclude for the definition of dual citizenship those Caymanians who received British Citizenship solely by virtue of the British Overseas Territories Act 2002.
However, the text sent from the FCO to the Privy Council omitted the part of the phraseology, so that it now excludes all British Citizens from the dual citizenship restriction, rather than just those who obtained British citizenship by virtue of the British Overseas Territories Act 2002.
The People’s Progressive Movement’s General Secretary, MLA Alden McLaughlin, who was on the select committee that drafted the recommended amendment said that the objective was to ensure that those persons who qualified to stand for election prior to the coming into effect of the British Overseas Territories Act 2002 continued to be qualified.

As was in fact reported to the Committee during their oral examination of the United Kingdom's 15th report, the new, structured dialogue between the Overseas Territories Governments and the United Kingdom Government which was foreseen in that report (CERD/C/338/Add.12 (Part II) at p.4) is now fully in operation.
There have been a number of meetings of the Overseas Territories Consultative Council and also a number of meetings of the Conference of Attorneys General of the Overseas Territories (usually under the chairmanship of the Attorney General of England) to discuss such subjects as the protection of human rights.
In the meantime, the Committee is referred to the general description of the ethnic or national origins of the population that was given in the Note to paragraph 32 of the 15th report.

The amendment means that a British overseas territories citizen, who is also a British citizen by virtue of the British Overseas Territories Act 2002, is no longer disqualified for election to the Legislative Assembly of the Islands.
This provision corrects the Cayman Islands (Constitution) (Amendment) Order 2004 (S.I.2004/2029) in which reference to the British overseas Territories Act 2002 was inadvertently omitted.
The Order also modifies the Constitution of the Cayman Islands to require the Governor to dissolve the current Legislative Assembly no later than 17 March 2005, extending the life of the current Assembly by a few months following the recent hurricane.
