    @SAgirl I am currently trying for a second child and if we manage it I'm going to apply for citizenship for him/her before they turn one and I'll apply for my son too at the same time. Perhaps if I have citizenship and his sibling has citizenship they might make an exception........?

    Ok am I going crazy? Have they changed the rules for this again?

    Reading on the website now, I cannot find anything that says the application has to be made before the child turns 1 ANYWHERE. In fact, a lot of it seems to have changed.

    I'm confused now....my parents, grandparents and so on were all born in the UK and I was too. I moved here in 2006 and have an Oz and UK passport. DD was born here in 2014. Can I get a British passport for her then. ...?

    Where do you see the 1 yr old bit? Is it the link you posted before or on the actual guidelines for mn1 page?

    From what I've read, you just apply. I tried to register their births and it says you don't need to as you can use the birth certificate from the country they were born.

    Hi. A bit of a tangent. I was born in UK and tried to get DD a UK passport. But she is donor conceived and form I got from Aus Post required father to sign. For Aus passport I could fill in special form to explain no father. Not been able to find same form for UK passport. Can anyone help?
