How do I register my child as a British citizen?
While different to Naturalisation, the application to register your child as a British citizen is still long and complex.
Your child will not need to fulfil most of the requirements of British Citizenship through naturalisation. They will not need to provide proof of English Language ability or pass a Life in the UK test.
You will, however, still need to provide:
- an extensive immigration history;
- reasons for wanting to apply;
- original documents, such as birth certificates and current passports; and
- biometric information (fingerprints and a photograph), this costs less than £20.
To ensure that your application is completed smoothly and within a reasonable timeframe, get in touch with the expert lawyers at IAS.
