  • Applying for a child's first British passport when parents have settled status

    A child born in the UK to a parent who was granted Indefinite Leave to Remain (ILR) before the child was born is British from birth and parents can apply directly for a British passport for the child.

    Some people who were granted ILR under the EU Settlement Scheme may have already been settled, this would be the case if they had acquired PR status under EU law, by exercising treaty rights for a continuous 5 year period years (such as by being a worker or a self-employed...

  • Children and their rights to British citizenship

    Many children are growing up in the UK, including many who were born in the UK, either unaware that they are not currently regarded as British citizens, or that they have rights to British citizenship. They include many children in care. It is vital that children, their parents and carers, including local authorities, understand these rights and are able to ensure children secure these rights.

  • Changing the PR acquired date

    Changing the PR acquired date

    It may be possible to get the Home Office to change the date they deemed you to have acquired PR status if you write to them stating why you think you should have an earlier date.

    The dates are particularly important if you have children born in the UK before the date written in the letter sent by the Home Office.

    If you don't know the date when you acquired PR status, see How to find the date when you acquired PR status.

  • Children born in the UK to a British parent

  • Registration of children born abroad as British citizens

    Unlike children born in the UK, the fact that a parent later acquires PR or citizenship doesn't allow them to be deemed British from birth and they have no entitlement to register as British in the same way children born in the UK may be able to do.

    This document provides guidance on the registration of children under 18:

    On page 13, it says the following:

  • Children of Irish nationals

    Irish nationals are considered as settled in the UK immediately on taking up residence.

    Unlike other EU nationals, they don't need to have a minimum period of residence, nor be exercising treaty rights. Therefore, UK born children of Irish citizens were born to a settled parent and are already British.

    If a child was born in the UK before 1 July 2006 and the parents were not married, it is advisable to get legal advice.

  • Children of British citizens by naturalisation

    If the British parent became naturalised after the child was born, the child is not automatically British, however, they may still be British if either parent had PR status or ILR at the time of the birth, provided the child was born in the UK.

  • UK citizenship for UK born children of EEA parents

    On 1 July 2021, new legislation introduced a new Section to the British Nationality Act 1981.
