I do not currently have a British Passport - would I be able to apply for one based on the information supplied?
My Mum can get, and is in the process of getting, an Irish passport through her grandfather, ***** *****, (who was born in Ireland). However, her mother and herself were born in South Africa. (My brother lives in Olney in the UK, and it just makes visiting him and his family easier)
As far as we understand the Irish passport, my Mum can get one, but this cannot extend to me, as she did not register me in the Foreign Births Register when I was born in 1966.
Thank you for the information - the last question I have then, is do I have to apply for my ancestry visa, and then my son's "dependent ancestry visa", before he turns 18 years old or before he turns 21 years old?
ie. Could I apply for the two ancestry visas after he has finished grade 12 at school (matric). He would have turned 18 in the June of his grade 12 year. Would that be too late as he would be 18 already?
Ideally we would only want to come to the UK after he has finished schooling, but I have been given contradictory ages of 18 years old (from a visa consultant in SA) and 21years (from your reply above)
Thank you so much,
