Re: Foreign Birth Registration

Thanks. I don't think we'll ever get to the bottom of the disparity in processing times. It wasn't a particular rush for me but I did get fed up waiting as it approached the second anniversary of the applications. Really glad to get this over with.

Re: Foreign Birth Registration

No, they did not ask for them to be signed. In fact, they explicitly stated "these photographs are not required to be witnessed".

Re: Foreign Birth Registration

Just an update (or lack of it). Applied May 2019 for my kids, documents received May 31, 2019. Got an email on October 19, 2020, demanding I send updated photos within 28 days or they would cancel the application (never mind that I live 3,000 miles away and there is a global pandemic). I sent them o...

Thanks, 86ti. I guess I just have to cross my fingers and hope the UK citizenship doesn't become an issue. As you point out, my place and date of birth will be on the application form. Also, my Irish passport states that I was born in the UK. Ironically, I always thought that being born in the UK wo...

UK EEA Permit for non EU spouse. Both resident outside EU.

I am an Irish national, and Irish passport holder, however, I was born in the UK prior to Jan 1, 1983 so I think that also makes me a UK citizen. My wife is non-EU, and we...
