Ask an Immigration Solicitor. Get an Answer ASAP.
Dear Nicola, Thank you for the response. The initial appeal of this website was the possibility to get a fast response (to what I had assumed is not such a complicated situation), but given that three days on I'm being asked to wait then I shall seek alternative sources for future information - hence I cancelled my subscription. As it turns out, the answer to the question seems to be that we could apply for my daughters UK passport from Uganda, even though I'm not present there, but the process would take as long as three months. It will be more expeditious to bring her to the UK on her Ugandan passport, along with her mother, and make the child passport application in London. Time is of greater concern to us than cost. Kind regards, XXXX
Thank you for the reply. Yes I was aware that it is an online application, and although I can post the documents from the UK it is regarded as an overseas application and as such, can take up to 12 weeks to be processes. Bringing the girl here on her Ugandan passport and then making the UK child passport application (that application could be processed in about one week) would be a better option. Regards, XXXXXXX
