My son Bobby attended court in Poprad, Slovakia last November. After the Judgement Monika signed the agreement that stipulated that Bobby could have 4 visits of 1 week each time in Slovakia in 2015 and then in 2016 he would be allowed to travel to Great Britain for those 1 week visits. Bobby obviously would go to Slovakia to get his son and then return him within the stipulated times. Nothing was said or agreed about the passport. His son did have a Slovakian passport but that may have ran out by now and it would be so much easier for his son to have a British passport so we can book flights and go through the controls at the airport with no hassles. My grandson has a different surname to his father that may cause concern when travelling. Also as his son has dual nationality I think (I may be wrong) he is entitled to a British passport and it would be great for him as he grows up to hold both Slovakian and British passports. The first visit in Great Britain is scheduled for March 1st 2016, so we want to get all this sorted out well before that time and we are prepared to do what ever it takes to obtain this legally (of course). My son and I will be travelling to Slovakia on 1 June 2015 to see his son for the week (Monika hands him over to us so we have sole charge of him for the week). We intend to be speaking honestly and clearly with her whilst out there, so that she understands everything, but we need to know ourselves the formality first. She knows it is a crime to not comply.I hope this information helps and I look forward to your reply.

I was already 99% sure that my Grandson was a UK citizen by decent but my question was about the procedure in obtaining the passport. Would Bobby have to go to the Slovakian Embassy in London and would Monika have to be there as well or would just signatures be enough or would they have to go to the British Embassy in Slovakia or would sending the documents in the post be enough ? This is what I want to know. Thank you.
