Naturalisation. Good character. Criminality. Sex Offender

If you apply to naturalise as a British citizen, you must satisfy the good character requirement. A factor considered when assessing your character is whether you have committed, in the UK or abroad, a sexual offence, or whether your details are recorded by the police on the Sex Offenders Register.

You application will normally be refused if you have been convicted of a sexual offence, or if you have not been convicted by reason of insanity or disability, or if you have received a caution (not a criminal conviction, but an evidence of bad character).

You may have your application refused even after your name was removed from the Sex Offenders Register.
