Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
1. Can you provide more information please. Where are you and your husband living? Is it in Malta? Or in the UK? If you have been living in the UK how long have you been resident there? What passport does your husband hold? What time has your husband spent in the UK?
2. I regret to say your husband cannot apply for a British passport now. Since 2012, when the law was made more restrictive, your husband needs to spend five years continuous residence in the UK in order to qualify for a British passport. This is what is necessary in order that he qualify as the spouse of a British citizen. It is not possible to qualify for a British passport if he is living in Malta, purely on the basis of being married to a British citizen and being the father of British citizens. He must live in the UK for five years.
2. Additionally, he must apply for a Permanent Residence card during those five years he is in the UK and also have private health insurance so he is not dependent upon the NHS for his health care. These are two additional requirements for him.
