    Default help with applying for British citizenship then British passport forThai stepdaughter

    Can somebody please point me in the right direction as to applying for British citizenship for My Thai Step daughter please, she has been in the U.K. now for 5 years legally on a ILR. I've just not have the time, money or patience to apply. I now think its the correct time to do this as we are planning on a holiday to Spain this year so rather than messing around with schengen visa's I may as well sort it all out for good.

    Thank you Lads

    Hello Tobias, and thank you for your reply she is 14 years old and her mother has British citizenship also a British passport. I've been quite lazy in the last 5 years and not sorted this out.

    I am living on aircraft or at airports at present, so not in any one place for more than a few hours! This means very little time to do anything not work related. Last night I arrived in Singapore ... and am shortly heading back to the airport.

    Have a look at the following official guidance, you should find your answers there: https://www.gov.uk/government/upload...nuary_2017.pdf

    See also Children born outside the UK and registration under Section 3(1).

    I think she may use the Joint Citizenship and Passport service at some NCS.

    When the child applied to join her mother in the UK she would have been given a reference number, dig out the old paperwork and you should fine it.

    I've just had a look through the old paperwork, and I can not see anything as I did not do this application.
    I had to use a visa lawyer in Bangkok recommended to me via a fellow member of Thai uk.
    The lawyer "orchid of Siam, Anthony Kierans
    was excellent first class all the way. I've just emailed his Bangkok office to see if they can help me with this reference number.

    If she received any letters from the Home Office, then her reference number should be there. Sometimes, they also write her reference number on the back page or cover of her passport.
