These are the things I know:
- Children born in the UK by EEA parents before they obtained PR status are not British Citizens, but once the parents obtain the status they can register to become one.
- Children born in the UK by EEA parents after they obtained PR status are British Citizens.
Getting PR status is supposedly automatic after excercising treaty rights for five years. However getting proof of this takes supposedly a long time as there is a huge backlog of PR applications yet to be processed.
So what happens to children who were born after the parents obtained PR status but before they get the proper paperwork about it. Are they British citizens? If yes, how to prove this to obtain a British passport for them?
