Re: Not Accepted for Adopted Children Register in England

Good morning to you, Manci and Simon,

I read in the government website that the local MP also deals with immigration matters. Do you think I should, or could, write to the local MP and explain my case? Would that be of any help? Or would that not be appropriate at all?

Thank you for your advice.

Re: Not Accepted for Adopted Children Register in England

If you now live in the UK, you could apply for an ILE application for your son to join you in the UK. That would make it easier for him to either register as a British citizen (before his 18th birthday) or for him to naturalise as a British citizen (after his 18th birthday). Keep in mind that for t...

Re: Not Accepted for Adopted Children Register in England

Dear Manci, Thank you very much for taking time to respond to me. There is much to read and understand from your link and I shall do that carefully. Forgive me one stupid question - should I write to the Home Office with my plea? I have actually done that on December 16 but so far, no response. A fr...

Not Accepted for Adopted Children Register in England

I have since learnt that he cannot automatically obtain British citizenship because he is a child adopted outside of the UK, and NOT under The Hague Convention. One way is of course to register him into the Ado...
