just had a baby girl and i'm wondering if anybody has registered their child as a british citizen through the wonderfully organized BRITISH embassy here.
now i know you will say look at the website, and the missus has been delegated to this task and come back with all these strange requests for translations and registering our marriage in the UK etc.
so what i'm looking for is actual experiences, costs, speed bumps etc.
prayers and chickens will be sacraficed by my chinese family for your improved rebirth in thanks
i'll just green informative responses

Thought thai were the master race?
P.S Grats on your fatherhood
Your birth certificate and (not sure) passport.
Marriage paper -translated.
Daughter's birth certificate -translated.
Translation costs depend upon where it's done.
Embassy costs - see their website.
I've been to the British Embassy twice recently (statement of means letter etc.) and was amazed how empty the place was.
In and out in twenty minutes - no wisecracks please!
The Thais think they're the master race.

now thats what i'm talking about
Yes, and the difference is noticeable - no queues in particular.
Very easy mate - did it a few months ago. Will cost around 15k all told, by the time you fork out for Birth Cert and Passport.
Pretty well depends when you go - I've been about half a dozen times in the last few months altogether (new passport, got married, birth cert/passport for daughter) and have waited as long as an hour and a half on one occasion. Quickest was about ten minutes - take a book or newspaper, it gets very tedious listening to other folk's conversations in that place. Seems like every tourist in there really believes that he is the first person ever to get married/lose passport/overstay etc!!!!no queues
Last time I was there the bloke in front of me queued up for an hour and a half to try and extend his 30-day stamp
Back to the OP - If you need any specific advice - PM me, just follow the instructions on the website and it's all very easy!
Excuse me for not taking this seriously .....
i'm going to postwhore with my gratitude
looks like the queen will find out i'm hitched to a heathen then
make sure you have the full/ long version of your birth certificate
otherwise it creates a lot of fucking about
I too am a British Canadian. I was born in Canada between UK parents. I was told that because I am of the second generation that should I have my children abroad the UK, my children will granted Canadian citizenship but not UK citizenship unless of course, I marry a first generation British citizen. And for my children, if they are to be born in Thailand, must declare as adults that they intend to retain their Canadian citizenship being second generation Canadian citizens.Originally Posted by tosser
That's right. Quite easy to get hold of though, especially if you have a relative in the UK.Originally Posted by reinvented
