HelloThank you for your enquiry. At the time of your child's birth were you already a British citizen? When was your child born. When did you acquire British citizenship? Are you married to the child's mother?

Your child is a British citizen by law there is no registration required. You should apply for your child's British passport. You will be asked to provide evidence of your British citizenship. Please can you rate before you leave. Thank you very much.

A certificate of entitlement is proof of son's right of abode for UK immigration control purposes. It is not the same as a settlement visa. If the application asks to declare your son's nationality, you must do so.
