My son was born in Zimbabwe in 1982 and holds a British passport (as both parents are British). He is now working and living in Dubai. His son was born in Dubai on 16 January 2014. The British Embassy is saying his son cannot be registered as British as his son is third generation descent. I would say my son Christopher is British by descent and his son Oliver is second generation descent. Help please. Lin Gurnsey
Did not know you were in USA are you able to answer my question on British law.
is there any way round this asmy grandson will be stateless.
UK Lawyer this has worried us as our grandson will be stateless. Is there any way round this, ie apply for citizenship?
The answer may not be what we wanted to hear but thank you.
Its very complicated as my grandson also needs a visa to remain in Dubai which has to be applied for within 190 days. We are just so worried.
