    Never married to her. Daughter was born in Thailand when I was in the uk. She was born in 2005.
    thinkIv got to register her birth with the British embassy for first step to getting s British passport.

    If I register her for a British passport first does that mean she can live with me permanently?

    Just an update.
    Filling out the form applying for uk passport from overseas for my daughter.

    couple of points on the form Iam not sure about.
    Section 9 deceleration her mum fills out this part as she is under 16 I understand that ok

    section 10 countersignatory: it says you should not sign this form if you are a relative of the person applying.
    IMPORTANT if the application is for a child you are confirming the id of of the adult in section 9 and the photo of the child.


    i have filled it in saying I know the mother to me fo 14 years.
    then gone on to fill in my home address.

    it asks for name and address of company I work for OR private address if it does not apply. Which is correct?

    can the countersignatory be the father

    So my question is can I countersign it or should I get my friend who knows them both to sign it?

    Once she has a UK passport she has the same rights as you and any other UK national and has full rights to live in the UK.

    Unfortunately, if she was born prior to 2006 outside the UK and you never married her non-British mother, then she is not yet British. A non-British person may not apply for a British passport.

    However, she may register first. After a successful registration, apply for a British passport.

    Please click on the links in blue for more information. I have assumed that you were British otherwise than by descent (e.g. born or naturalised in the UK) before your daughter was born.

    it suggests it's unnecessary to register for citizenship before applying for a passport.

    Read that thread carefully. A subsequent marriage to the child's mother legitimised the child who was born prior to 2006. Yours is not the case here.
