Re: Baby Born Abroad

understood that child is British.

Rephrase of question - how do we get British Passport for the child?
What age can we apply for the Passport - is it immediately after we reach UK?

Thanks

Re: Baby Born Abroad

Hi Cr001,

Thanks for the quick reply.

Yes I am British by Naturalisation.
