Re: Can I register my child’s birth with only her mother’s ops number?

If the child is born in the Republic of Ireland, then the birth must be registered.

Whether or not parents have a PPS number and whether or not the child is an Irish citizen.

Re: Could I be a British citizen? (mother born in singapore)

I am confused what citizenship she had when she was born. She is unable to say. My understanding is that Singapore was no longer a British colony in 1959. However, this website (the person responding is Jane White of the Nationality Operational Policy UK Border Agency) states "Before 16 September 1...

Re: Mother born in Singapore- eligible for UK passport?

As I understand the (British) State of Singapore Act 1958 established Singapore as a de-facto independent Commonwealth country for most purposes, including nationality, with effect from June 1959. On that basis, birth in Singapore would not have automatically conferred Citizenship of the UK & Coloni...

Re: Cant remember work history before 2013

Perhaps ask HMRC for your tax records and Department for Work and Pensions for your National Insurance record?

After that if you don't have specific details and cannot find any other records, you will simply have to say that specific details are unavailable.

Re: Do you have to have a passport to do the UKF Form?

Applicants under Form UKF (or Form T) do not need to have a passport. If there is a choice between the two routes then UKF is normally preferable since the fee is lower and a U.K. born person will normally be a British citizen otherwise than by descent. What's the mother's nationality? If a Commonwe...

Re: Naturalisation by MN1 - Does the child have to be present to get the passport

If the child is born in the U.K- then child is not required to be present in the U.K. to become a British citizen. However, a first British passport application from Pakistan may take some time.

Re: No ROA Stamp on my father's passport, Can I claim a British passport through him?

When in 1962 did he arrive in the U.K.? The Commonwealth Immigrants Act 1962 came into force in (as I understand) July 1962, so immigration control operated quite differently before and after that date. Certain persons from former British India did not become Indian or Pakistan citizens in the post-...

I'd expect some investigation of identity status when a first passport application is made from overseas by someone claiming to be born to a mother naturalised as British in 1960. Pre-1986 naturalisation certificates are no longer held by the Home Office and may not be replaceable if lost. Perhaps f...

Who is "they"? The Passport Office? Regardless of the outcome, you need to seek your own legal advice as to whether you are really a British citizen or not.
