Will my child receive British Citizenship?

Persons who obtained British Citizenship are often unsure what the case will be with their children born in the UK. Will the child automatically receive British Citizenship?

The answer regarding British citizenship for children is that it will depend on where the child will be born. If the child is born in Britain (i.e. British by birth), he/she will automatically be British, and the parents can simply apply for a British passport as soon as the child is born.

If the child is born outside of the UK (i.e. British by descent), the application will have to be made through the British High Commission in the country where the child is born.
