And a much better investment than a passport which would expire after five years.

I am looking at finally getting around to a CBR for little Miss P, who recently celebrated her tenth birthday, but if I decide to get her a passport too, "just because", I won't get that until next year when she approaches her eleventh birthday because then when it expires she can replace it with a ten year passport around her 16th birthday.

Default Re: British passports for children born to British father

Hi, I've now applied and need to get the documents in within 90 days. I have photocopies of their passports, and originals of my birth certificate, and my marriage certificate.

I'm not sure on a couple of things:
1. Do I need to send my kids birth certificates?
2. The sentence "The passport you entered the country from which you are applying...". I moved to the US in 1999, so do I need to send that passport?

Thanks
Jon

1) Yes - you need to send the originals of their birth certificates.

2) No - you need to send your current British passport.

This is the main reason I gained Irish citizenship, as they don't place insane bars to citizenship through descent like the UK does.

You need to send original birth certificates, but not passports. Only a photocopy of the child's passport (if they hold one) is required.
