As of Tuesday, I am a British Citizen. This is something that I’ve been aiming for since I arrived in the UK six years ago and I can promise you that I am relieved to finally have it.
Whilst I am delighted about acquiring British citizenship, I didn’t want to lose my South-African citizenship. Today I received approval from South-Africa that I can retain my South-African citizenship. So everything has worked out very well.
It is a bit weird having dual nationality, but at least I’m in a win-win situation when the Boks play against England.
