Im writing this post with alot of angst and anger.
I am an aussie, born and bred here. I married a british lady a few years ago who is now an australian citizen. We had a baby boy 6 weeks ago.
We now want to move back to the Uk as we do not have family here and my wife has all her family and friends in the UK. My wife has her british passport still, I have a spousal visa granted for 2 years for the UK but our son does not have a british passport. My question is that we want to return on the 7th Feb 2012. We have been told he needs a british passport to enter the country as a british citizen but shurely can he not enter on his australian passport and we apply for his british passport when we are in the UK. My wife has her passport, birth certificate extract etc. has anyone done this or come across this issue? There is only 5 weeks and 5 days until we go and we have been told it will take atleast 6 weeks for his passport to come back. Please can anyone help out with some advice or if they have known anyone who went through this. We are thinking we will just get his aussie passport which will be back within 3 weeks and enter the country on that and then apply over there. Noone from the British consulate/embassy/Uk border agency will give us answers. They all give us the run around and direct us to the other agency etc. Noone can give us a straight answer and that is frustrating and costing us money for phone calls etc.
