Story

Can you help save my daughters from deportation? I am a British citizen who's family comes from Diego Garcia, a British island in the India Ocean. My family were forcibly removed from the island 50 years ago to make way for an American air base. Now my daughters, who are 16 and 18, are not afforded the right of British citizenship by the UK Government and are facing deportation. We have no family anywhere else and they have nowhere to go. Can you help me raise money to pay for legal help to apply for their citizenship and keep my family together?

    Jeanette, Thank you very much for sending the 6 scanned images of documents relating to Taniella, Nesta and you; very helpful. I have filed these in case we need them to support you once we have received the advice from the Home Secretary’s team. We await information about your property.

    could regularise Taniella’s status with the forthcoming Second Reading of the British Indian Ocean Territory (Citizenship) Bill; hopefully it will soon pass into law. Please be assured I have not divulged any personal details about you. We await details of your landlord and/or agent so we can try to help with the state of your property. Please let me have this as soon as possible. I look forward to hearing from you again

    Been ask to scanned Taniella and Nesta Seychelles passport and birth certificate Jeanette, Thanks for your e-mail and for explaining that only you have the surname Valentin. Yes, it would be very helpful if you could send me a scanned image of Taniella’s and Nesta’s birth certificates. A copy of your birth certificate, and their dad’s if you have it, would also be useful as we will need it once we move to the formal process.
