If you are a resident in the UK (which for this purpose includes if you just moved there with the intent of working and living in the UK), you cannot drive a non-UK car in the UK.

The third link provided by StrongBad is not directly relevant here. That page does not explain the criteria that determine whether a child is a UK citizen at birth. Rather, it explains how a child who is not a UK citizen at birth can register for citizenship at a later date. Here's the short version: if you have lived in the UK for five years, your child ...

Also bear in mind that it is strictly illegal in some countries, to work while you are located in that country if you do not have a work permit. This is usually because they have no way of taxing you if you don't have a work permit, but the procedure for getting one can be long and drawn out, and require you to have an employer in that country.

Living in Poland ~3 months, and I'd say people there are mostly polite... unless you did something perhaps not offensive but unpleasant or unacceptable in any way. I'd ask him what's the matter. Sometimes we have no idea we did something wrong, but we can speak and solve the issue.

There is no limit, unless the countries you have a citizenship in limit them. Britain for example doesn't care whether you have a citizenship in an other country or not (since the British Nationality Act of 1948).

I believe you might be able to live your life without becoming a tax resident under any country's laws, though you might want to look carefully at the tax laws of the countries you are leaving. I don't know about the UK or Poland but Canada, for example, makes it a little tough to become a non-resident for tax purposes even if you aren't physically present ...

A child born to a Polish citizen outside of Poland is automatically a Polish citizen. Polish citizenship qualifies the child for a Polish passport. There is no specific EU passport. Each member country's passport is evidence of EU 'citizenship' and all of those rights and responsibilities.

While it's true that legally if you move to the UK, you are not able to drive a non-UK car there, in practice this is not enforced (for people who just moved to the UK - for long term residents it's different and there were some crackdowns on non-UK registered cars that were parked for a long time in the same place in some areas), and it would be really hard ...

Studying in Germany on a Polish D visa will not be practical. You are only allowed to stay in Germany for 90 days out of 180, which will not be enough to attend the lectures and exams of a term (even if you commute back to Poland every weekend). Germany cannot extend a Polish D visa, either. Germany can issue a German D visa, which is what you need. Being a ...

Mr Spence is actually wrong, your car must be registered in the country you live in. To claim that to have a car in France is legally on UK plates despite being french registered is bull. He has, one assumes, a french carte grise (equivalent to our V5 log book) on which he will find his new registation number in the top left hand corner. It should be in the ...

See ec.europea.eu and Your Europe for an overview. ...

The purpose was to study in Poland, and your application had to be supported by a letter of acceptance from a university. Once you withdraw, you change the conditions of the visa.

According to Wikipedia, there shouldn't be a problem with Poland, however they would need a special permission to maintain their South African citizenship while holding another. In any case you would most probably still need to register your children at the respective embassy.
