Ask an Immigration Solicitor. Get an Answer ASAP.
Hello,Sorry to hear about the issues back in Pakistan.To answer your questions:1) the baby is already a British Citizen so you may apply for a certificate of entitlement to right of abode in the UK using his Pakistani passport. The application may be lodged at the same time as your wife's settlement visa application: http://www.ukba.homeoffice.gov.uk/britishcitizenship/right-of-abode/certificate-entitlement/Right of abode means the baby is free from UK immigration control and is free to enter and leave the UK at will. Once in the UK, you may apply for a British passport for the baby, you do not need to do so but you may do so. The baby is perfectly entitled to live and work in the UK on the Pakistan passport with the certificate of entitlement to the right of abode but it will obviously be easier to travel etc if a British passport is obtained.
Once a British passport is issued to the baby, the certificate of entitlement will no longer be valid as one cannot hold both a British passport and a certificate of entitlement at the same time, it is either one or the other.
Hope this helps.
are these the steps i need to take? please confirm.
1)obtain a pakistani passport for baby
2)apply for a visa under sub category "right of abode,certificate of entitlement"
3)lodge baby's application with my wifes application for a spouse visa
will this allow him entry into uk with no immigration control/restrictions and how long is the processing time for this type of visa application?
