1. Dear Diana, where was your son born? Has he spent more than 3 years in the UK at any stage in his life? Did you register your son's birth in the UK before he was 18? Where were your two grandchildren (2 sons of your son) born? Were you born a UK citizen or did you acquire citizenship by naturalisation?
2. Dear Diana, I regret to say that your son won't qualify for UK citizenship unless he resides continuously in the UK for five years, as he was born in Ecuador. He can get a visa to live and work in the UK if he qualifies for one of the jobs in the Tier 2 visa requirements. However, he won't qualify for a visa to join you as a member of your family as he is now over 18. He can apply for a visitor visa to come and visit you on a temporary basis. However, this visa won't give him the right to live and work in the UK.
3. If your son had spent two more yeaers in the UK in 1999, he would have qualified for settlement and for naturalisation in the UK. However, as he is now an adult, he cannot join you as a member of your family, which would give him the right to live and work in the UK. He has to qualify if he gets a job with a Tier 2 visa employer.
4. As you obtained UK citizenship by naturalisation, your son won't qualify by way of descent for Uk citizenship. he has to establish himself by living continuously in the UK for five years I regret to say.

6. Yes, it will be straightforward for him to get a visa to visit you. He merely needs to show he has permanent relations in Ecuador, such as a wife and a job to which he must return. Also evidence that he can support himself in the UK whilst he is here is also necessary.
7. Yes, that is the total charge.
