Re: Singapore-born/UK nationality help

No, the data in the booking only goes to the country you are flying to. To the OP - 1 - no, not until you register him at UK High Commission & Somerset House. Then you apply for a passport for him I didn't register my two girls at the High Commission. All I did was to fill up the "Apply Passport" f...

Re: Singapore-born/UK nationality help

They kept both passports. But I guess they have it down on record the two boys have dual passports. I cannot remember how old the boys were when they were caught but definitely still minors then.

Re: Singapore-born/UK nationality help

No you don't, but you have to enter and leave the country you are a citizen of using that country's passport. e.g., if you are a UK and a SG citizen you have to leave the UK using your UK passport and enter Singapore on your SG passport. You need to leave SG using the SG passport and enter the UK u...

Re: Singapore-born/UK nationality help

1. I haven't so much as sent a tweet home to anyone official. Is he already British anyway? (The UK births registration form, which I have not submitted yet due to cost and the need to put his birth certificate in the mail, has a disclaimer that it does not constitute citizenship, so then how does ...

Re: Looking to move back to the UK

Well, I quite understand the author’s desire to move back to the UK, myself I am not from England, but looking forward to come back to Europe and one day I will for my daughter’s education. For now when she’s 4 years old we are good here, but I know we will have to leave SG sooner or later. As many...

Re: Wifes PR application rejected

People migrate of all sorts of reason, mostly to make their life better, may be better opportunity, more safety, more wealth etc. As of 2012 around 200K singaporeans are living abroad, with the most being in Australia, why? because they have better opportunity and life somewhere else. Can we blame ...

Re: Looking to move back to the UK

Looks like I'm a little late to this party, but I relocated back to the U.K 3 years ago after almost a decade in Asia (not all of it in Singapore) and I can honestly say I don't regret it for a second. Take a look and my old post from a few months ago, I've not changed my opinion since then https:/...

Re: Looking to move back to the UK

I dont mind moving to Australia if I could be granted some form of residency. We are now at Stage 0 of planning, but will definitely look into it. Been to Perth, Melbourne and Sydney and Perth seems to be a great place to raise young children. For starters it depends on whether you need to be *phys...

Man this is mean. https://www.theguardian.com/uk-news/2017/feb/26/grandmother-deported-from-uk-despite-being-married-to-briton-for-27-years This is seriously appalling. Surely there must be some process for deporting people that takes longer than that so everything can be sorted out in a civil mann...
