Ask a Law Question, Get an Answer ASAP!
Please ask your questions.
Usually, if you are a British Citizen by descent, any child born to you outside the UK is not a British Citizen at birth.
Did you live in the UK before your child was born, if so, how long, and where were your parents born?
How did you qualify for British Citizenship by descent?
If you became British by naturalisation, then you are British otherwise than by descent and your child is automatically British by descent.
You simply need to apply for a British Passport for the child.
May I help further?
Yes, the child is British by descent.
Please go ahead and apply for a British Passport for the child.
