I was born in the UK.
I have been born in the UK.
Is the second one correct or not?
No. Absolutely not. In almost all circumstances, we use "I was born". We can't use the present tense, the present perfect or the future. It is possible to use the past perfect if the voice and the context allows it, "I had been born in Wales in 1932, at a time when mining was the only source of income for most people. My childhood had been spent running around the mines, covered in coal dust and wondering how on earth I would ever get out of this place."
