How to apply for first British passport for child

There are a number of ways to become eligible for UK citizenship. It can be either by:

Birth, naturalization (immigrating to the UK and applying), descent, and registration.

  • The applicant can apply for their first British passport at any time – the applicant does not need to do it before they reach a certain age.

British citizenship can only be inherited through a parent by the first generation born outside the UK in almost all circumstances. Different rules apply to children born in British colonies and territories.

The UK recognizes dual citizenship. This means that any other citizenship you have will not conflict with your claim to British citizenship.

However, if the applicant claims British citizenship, he/she needs to make sure they do not conflict with their original citizenship as nationals from certain countries, such as Germany, automatically lose their original citizenship if they naturalize or claim another citizenship (under most circumstances).

1. How to apply online for a British passport for a child?

To apply online for a British passport for a child, the following things are required:

  • A digital photograph of the child.
  • Supporting documents
  • A credit or a debit card

It costs £49, to get a British passport for a child. Further, it takes around 3 weeks to process the same.

Once the parent has paid and submitted the application for their child’s British passport, they’ll need to ask someone to confirm their child’s identity.

That person will receive an email from HM Passport Office telling them to confirm the child’s identity online.

2. The parents can apply for the child’s British passport by post by either:

  • Getting a paper form from a Post Office that holds the Passport Check and sends service.
  • Contacting the Passport Adviceline to get a form posted for them.

The parents can fill in Sections 1,2,3,4,5 and 9 of the form and the child be required to sign section 6 if they are 12 or over. A ‘counter signatory’ is required to fill in section 10 and certify the child’s photo.

3. The application can be sent either:

  • Through post
  • Or can be taken to the Post Office

Someone with parental responsibilities should sign the form. If the child is between 12-15 years of age, they need to sign the form too.

Original documents are required in order to get a British Passport. Photocopies or even certified copies would not suffice for the same. Laminated documents would also not be used.

The documents are sent back through normal post, but the applicant can pay £5 extra to get them sent by secure delivery.

The child’s new passport will be sent through courier or Royal Mail.

They’ll either:

  • Post it through the letterbox
  • Hand it over to the applicant
  • Leave a card or post saying how the applicant can get it.

The Ultimate UK Residence Card Guide

What is UK Residence Card?

A Residence Card of a family member of a Union citizen is issued to the family member to confirm this right of residence. The holder of a valid Residence Card is entitled to use this document in lieu of an entry to all EEA member states.

People usually get confused between Permanent Residence Card and Registration Certificate. Let’s learn about the difference between them

A Registration Certificate that can be used by residence of the EEA and Switzerland as proof that they are entitled to live in another EU country (including UK) under European Law. A Registration Certificate does not confer rights on the holder, it merely confirms rights that they already possess as a ‘qualified person’ exercising treaty rights.

Whereas, a Permanent Residence Card can only be obtained after a citizen of the EEA or Switzerland has been living and exercising their treaty rights in the UK for a period of five years or more.

Who should currently apply for Residence Card UK?

  • You don’t need to apply for a UK Residence Card as a family member of an EEA or Swiss national, but a Residence card can:
    • Help you re-enter the country more quickly and easily if you travel aboard.
    • Show employers you’re allowed to work in the UK.
    • Help prove you qualify for certain benefits and services.
  • You must apply for a residence card if you’re an extended family member.
  • You must apply for a derivative right of residence card if you’re the carer of an EEA Citizen or UK National, the carer’s child, or the child of a former worker from EEA and you’re currently in education.

What is the Eligibility for UK residence card?

You can apply for a residence card if you’re both:

  • From outside the European Economic Area (EEA)
  • The family member, or extended family member, of an EEA national who is a permanent resident or a ‘qualified person’
  • You may also be eligible for a residence card if you have a ‘retained right of residence’ or make a ‘Surinder Singh’ application.

What is a Qualified Person?

A qualified person is someone who is in the UK and one of the following applies:

  • They’re working
  • They’re self-employed
  • They’re self sufficient
  • They’re studying
  • They’re looking for work (only if they meet certain conditions)

How long UK Residence Card lasts for?

  • A residence card usually lasts up to 5 years. However, your residence card won’t be valid after the UK leaves the EU.
  • A new scheme will be available for EU citizens and their family members to apply to stay in the UK after the UK leaves the EU.
  • If your residence card expires before the new scheme is available, you should reapply for another residence card.

How to stay back in UK after divorce from British citizen

If you are married to a British citizen, or a person with Indefinite Leave to Remain in the UK and your marriage or civil partnership is breaking down, you can seek to remain in United Kingdom if you have a child or if you have been a victim of domestic violence from your partner, their family or both and this is why your relationship has broken down before the end of your visa.

In order to apply to remain in the UK as the parent of the child you will be required to prove your relationship with the child and in addition you must be able to prove that

  • Your child or children are under the age of 18 years at the date of application;
  • Your child or children are living in the UK
  • Your child or children are either British or have Indefinite Leave to Remain

Based on our experience, we would strongly suggest that if your relationship is breaking down that you do not wait until your permission to leave expires before you take action. Submitting an application as soon as you realise that your application is ending will allow you to continue to live and work in the UK without any restrictions.

For more information on staying back in the UK if your relationship is ending or after your divorce, you can contact our immigration experts on info@smartmove2uk.com or call on +91 98191 27002 to book an appointment for a consultation.
