British Parents: Child born in India Citizenship & OCI Quer

Post by sojan » Sat Aug 09, 2014 5:53 pm

Friends,

AS per topic , the situation is Both parents BC by naturalisation. Baby to be born in India
I understand it is a very long process to apply BC passport , but would like to get your tips/experience on this matter

1. Father needs to come back to the UK within 2 weeks. Is mother alone sufficient to apply BC for baby?
2. I heard from colleague that baby can have both Indian passport & British Passport till he/she reaches 18 years?

The parent(s) should apply for CoE for the child, assuming the child was born after a parent was naturalised.

@Amber, thanks for that . I was reading details of CoE and is completely new to me :shock:

So after applying for CoE, can the baby come to UK and then apply for British Passport? Is that an easy process? Will then have to surrender Indian Passport?

A CoE in the passport would suffice without the need of applying for an additional passport.
