UKSolicitorJA : Hello,
UKSolicitorJA : your daughter is already a British Citizen at birth by virtue of being born in the UK to an Irish father.
UKSolicitorJA : Irish nationals are considered to be settled in the UK so anyone
UKSolicitorJA : born to them in the UK is automatically British at birth otherwise than by descent.
UKSolicitorJA : all that needs to be done is for a British passport to be applied for your daughter
UKSolicitorJA : See here for the procedure for applying for a first child passport:
UKSolicitorJA : https://www.gov.uk/get-a-child-passport
UKSolicitorJA : I would advise that a British passport be applied for as soon as possible for your daughter so that she has no issue entering the UK
even though she already has two passports?
UKSolicitorJA : No problem, she may have a third one as well
UKSolicitorJA : please leave feedback
my question related to her NZ passport. I don't really want to maintain 3 different passports for the future.
how can you just finish the chat without knowing if i have more questions?!
UKSolicitorJA : She is not guaranteed entry to the UK on her NZ passport
UKSolicitorJA : If the intention is for her to live in the UK in the foreseeable future, then it is advisable to apply for a UK passport for her
UKSolicitorJA : and perhaps not renew the German one
UKSolicitorJA : The site is having technical issues
UKSolicitorJA : i see you have left negative feedback, please reconsider this as it was not my fault due to the site having technical issues
I don't want to lose her German one. And Germany only allows for dual nationality in accordance with the parents passports. She cna't have an irish one as she only has great-grandparents born on the island and my husbands birth wasn't registered on the register. If she was to get a british one she'd have to give up the german one. And that wasn't my question as that's not an option. I realise, as per my initial querry, that there'll be an issue entering the country with the nz passport, hence me being on this website! Therefor I didn't find your answer helpful.
There must be a way of adding something to her nz passport by immigration or to get an extra document so she can enter the UK with it.
UKSolicitorJA : Ah I see now
UKSolicitorJA : There is a solution in that case
UKSolicitorJA : I can help further if you change your rating
UKSolicitorJA : as your current rating does not give me credit I am afraid
UKSolicitorJA : The site is still having issues it seems
UKSolicitorJA : The solution is to apply for a Certificate of Entitlement to prove that your daughter has the right of abode in the UK, this will be placed in her NZ passport
UKSolicitorJA : so that she will be free to enter and leave the UK without any immigration restrictions
UKSolicitorJA : see here for the process involved

UKSolicitorJA : hope this helps. Please remember to change your rating if this is helpful
UKSolicitorJA : So that I am credited accordingly.
UKSolicitorJA : Thank you
