The British nationals in Kenya in 1963 would have likely become Kenyan. Are you sure that didn't happen with your family?

If it didn't, you'll have to not only find your parents' proofs of British nationality, but you will have to prove that they didn't become Kenyan. It's a tall order.

Sorry for the bad news.

You'll need his passport, your parents' marriage certificate, your birth certificate naming him as your father...but it may still not be enough. They may believe he became Kenyan. Proving that part is tough. But whether or not you have to prove that, I don't know. You can always apply with the above and see what happens.

An entry record showing that they entered Pakistan on British passports might work, if they have a record of that.

It might work if you can show the entry stamp from Pakistan as well.

I don't know that their passports would help. I think the thing to prove is that you are British. Because of the different parent, they could be British for other reasons.

It doesn't appear that the Kenyan Embassy or High Commission in Islamabad has a webpage, but here is a page from the Kenyan Embassy in Brussels about birth certificates: http://www.kenyabrussels.com/index.php?menu=4&leftmenu=101&page=113
