I have two sons 6yrs and 4yrs old. The 6yr old was born in Africa and came to UK on depedant visa on his mum who had gotten aworking visa with NHS but got her settlement inJuly this year. The second born is 4yrs and is born in UK. Do both of them qualify for british passport automatically or they have to first get ILR just like their mum


Further to your question, they will not need to apply for Indefinite Leave to Remain however they will need to naturalise as British.

Kind Regards

Do they need to first wait for their mum who is due to naturalise after one year of her ILR or we can apply for them.
Also does 4yr who is born here require naturalisation as well or he is already naturalized by the fact that is born here.
Does the one who is 6yrs need to first finish 5yrs here for him to qualify as his mother since they came on the same visa however he joined his mother was already in UK for 1yr.

Also what do they need as children below 18yrs to naturalise.
Customer: replied 4 days ago.
What are the requirements for them to naturalise since they are under 18yrs of age and they both having holding depedant visas for their mum but now their mum got her ILR in july this year


Further to your questions, kindly note that being born in the UK does not automatically make you British and you resume the nationalityof your parent. The children can both apply using the MN1 Application Form now as once a parent has settled status (ILR) then a child can apply to register as British.
