Thank you for your question

My name is Clare

I shall do my best to help you but I need some further information first

Are you named on the birth certificate of the child

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
my name is ***** ***** birth certificate. Also the child's name is ***** ***** on the Birth certificate
Expert:  Clare replied 1 year ago.

Then all you need to do is apply for a British Passport for your child - your child is entitled to this although it may well mean that he cannot also have Chinese Citizenship

I hope that this is of assistance - please ask if you need further details
