ROA on Pakistani passport, Now applying for British Passport

Postby z4ydi » Fri Sep 02, 2011 1:17 pm

Before my wife gets her spouse visa issued my first child was born while in Pakistan. Because my child was British by descent, I had 2 options to bring him:
1. To apply for a British passport in Pakistan BHC but the lead time was 7 months.
2. To apply for Right Of Abode (ROA) for my child which will be stamped in his Pakistani passport.
I went for Option 2 because the lead time was much, much shorter. My wife and child joined me in the UK in April 2011, My question is: since my child has ROA on his Pakistani passport, do I apply for British passport straight away or is there another process?

2. There's no hurry. Wait until ROA expires or they will cancel the ROA when applying for a British passport.

Yes I was a British Citizen at the time of my child's birth, hence the ROA. So does this mean I don't have to apply for anything but a straight forward British Passport application?

It takes the same amount of time as the Sattlement Visa, which is around 12 weeks - if you are 3 months through the waiting process I would say just wait for the passport - it is 6 - 7 months and it is cheaper than the ROA.
