Yes. Birth certificate is not a proof of citizenship. You need to apply for citizenship(registration) for you child and once he is registered as BC then only you can apply for his passport.hj_vortex wrote:Thanks a lot guys for your support and quick answers but I am just a bit confused here ... my son when born in UK was issued a birth certificate from the local council...
Is this some different kind of registration ?/?Since I have my passport and visa original with the HM in this application , this will be painful

ME and my wife both got ILR on 22 Aug 2013 and my son who was born in Dec 2012 in UK is now eligible for naturalization certificate . I am going through the Council nationality checking service and have an apointment on 11 Oct 2013. I just want to find out given that my son is just 8 months old and has british birth certificate. How long will it take for his British national certificate to come through ? what is the time line ?
obvsly after that his passport will need to go through and that takes around one month time
Thanks in advance

me and my wife have been granted ILR on 26/08/2013 and my son was born on Dec 2012 so now I Am applying for mn1 for him under Section 1(3)
so in the mn1 form the question which I need help is
1- 1.3 Please say if and when the child was given indefinite leave to enter/remain in the UK... DATE ?
I did not get ILR for my son as I didnt wanted to waste money. so what shoud i say there ?
ALSO in the MN1 form do i need to fill Section 3 ? as it says Please say which parent is the one who is british citizen by descent and on whom this application is based --> so i guess none and i should leave it empty ? so I should leave the whole SECTION 3 empty ?
FOr referees do they BOTH need to be British Citizen ?
it says one of the referee must be a professional , can I use my estate agent as the professional or does it have to be a doctor minister etc ?
can the other referee be just any biritish citizen ?
which questions.?hj_vortex wrote:can anyone answer my other questions ?
