Are all Commonwealth countries eligible for the right of abode?
Citizens from countries that left the Commonwealth after 31 December 1982 are not eligible for the right of abode. Whilst they may appear on the list of Commonwealth countries, they’re no longer entitled to the right.
For example, countries like South Africa and Pakistan are not eligible as these countries left the Commonwealth and re-joined at a later date. Therefore, they chose to forfeit their right of adobe.
