Dear Vinni,

Thank you for your time in replying to my post, I read the links and got the guidelines booklet but have a question here

In the guidelines it is mentioned as below which is exactly matching to my situation

Applicant was born outside the UK and the
Falkland Islands on or after 1 January 1983,
or outside the UK and any qualifying British
overseas territory on or after 21 May 2002,
to a parent born in the UK or the Falkland
Islands (or, on/after 21 May 2002, any
qualifying British overseas territory) or to a
parent registered or naturalised in the UK
prior to the applicant’s birth
• Applicant’s full birth certificate
showing parents’ details;
• Parent’s marriage certificate (if
claiming through father and applicant
born before 1 July 2006); and
• Parent’s full birth certificate, registration
or naturalisation certificate

in my case applicant is born outside the UK and Parent father holds British Passport the confusion I have is, they mentioned Parents marriage certificate if claiming through father and applicant born before 1 July 2006, what do they mean as applicant here? because my baby is born in April 2017 so don't come under before 1 July 2006

Can you please clarify this?

Many thanks for your support

It means that it's okay for the applicant's parents to be unmarried.

I don't think she is eligible for COE

COE is only for someone who is born dual citizen that is one Parent hold British or settled in the UK

I will let experts answer this for you

That's correct. However, child is entitled to register.

Do click on the link vinny has provided. She cannot get CoE until she is British and she is not British yet, you have to register her as British.

Hello

My daughter was born in UK in March 2014. At that time me and my wife were on Tier 1 General visa

I recently got my Citizenship and my wife wants to stay on ILR .
My daughter is on ILR too. I wish to know process for getting my daughters CoE to ROA

What are the options for her to get CoE to ROA

1. If I get her naturilsed in UK and obtain Naturalisation Certificate [without applying for British passport] , can she get CoE on her Indian passport?

2. After being naturalised , can she apply for CoE to ROA from India ?

What are the options?

Thanks
Sam

You would need to check the nationality criteria with the Indian authorities regarding this as she is not automatically British and has to apply for the citizenship which might be an issue for her Indian nationality.

What does this mean "You would need to check the nationality criteria with the Indian authorities regarding this as she is not automatically British and has to apply for the citizenship which might be an issue for her Indian nationality."

After being registered as british we need to surrender Indian passport and apply for british passport compulsorily?
Or I can I retain her current Indian passport to get CoE?

I think that applying for naturalisation or registration or a British passport may result in the automatic loss of Inidan citizenship.

The form that is mentioned in official gov.uk website from Aug 2014 , says
" FORM ROAApplication for a certificate of entitlement to the right of abode(To be completed only by people currently in the UK)"

Which form should be used if we apply from India?

The first page of this topic actually doesnt mention any link to form for ROA from India

Hence I need your help
