How to obtain a visa for a child born in the UK to Portuguese and Indian parents so to facilitate them to return to India and re-enter the UK?

  • What citizenship(s) does the child have? (For example, whether the child is a British citizen depends on whether at least one parent is "settled" in the UK.) Are you asking about entry requirements for both India and the UK, or only about one of them? – phoog Jun 15 '18 at 16:08

If you can establish the child is a Portugal citizen (I don't know Portugal's rules on this) then they won't need a visa as they are an EU citizen.

Alternatively, they can enter the UK as the dependent family member of an EU citizen. You'll need to prove that with a birth certificate.

  • It's also possible that the child is a British citizen. – phoog Jun 15 '18 at 16:08
  • @phoog The child cannot be British because both the parents are not British. If one of the parent is an illegal immigrant, then its a different matter altogether. – The Last Word Jun 15 '18 at 17:46

    @TheLastWord that's not how it works. If one parent has settled status, the child is British, regardless of the other parent's status, even if the other parent is in the country illegally. It's not necessary for a parent to be British. – phoog Jun 16 '18 at 21:11

    @TheLastWord there are all manner of work visas for non-EU workers in the UK, but in this case (as a Portuguese national) there is EU freedom of movement. Furthermore, ILR is not the only settled status; permanent residence under EU law also counts. So if the Portuguese parent lived in the UK longer than 5 years before the child's birth, the child is a British citizen. – phoog Jun 17 '18 at 13:40

    @Zich no. It's on the page I linked to. "Settled" means indefinite leave to remain, indefinite leave to enter, or permanent residence under EU law. It presumably will also include the planned post-Brexit "settled status." – phoog Nov 13 '18 at 21:40
