Default British Citizenship Query.

Hi,
I am a British citizen by Naturalization (based on work permit) and my wife is a British citizen by birth. All of us including our two kids have British passports.

We have moved to Botswana since last year and are currently in Botswana on Work permit. We are planning to have a baby and want to find out that if we have a baby in Botswana, would the baby acquire British citizenship by default or do we have to go through the naturalization process?

Thanks
SD

If you are British citizens otherwise than by descent, a child born in Botswana would be a British citizen by descent.
