Thanks for your question.
To enable me to answer your question could you please respond to the following:-
Apologies, I must have misread your initial question.
Were your husband's parents UK citizens by birth having been born in the UK?
Can you please also confrim that you have lived together for the 6 year period you have been married.
Thanks for your reply.
Because their father was a British Citizen otherwise than by descent by virtue of having been born in the UK to British parents and because you were married at the time of birth they are British Citizens by descent. This means that they are entitled to regsiter themselves as British Citizens and apply for British passports.
However, it also means that the twins themselves will not pass their UK citizenship on to any of their own children born outside the UK. If their children are born in the UK they will obtain UK citizenship.
I would apply for their passports now prior to moving back to the UK. It makes things so much easier (and less expensive).
You will obviously have to apply for Settlement on the basis of your marriage to a UK national but because you have been married and lived together outside the UK for a period of 4 years the provided you adequately evidence this fact then you will receive indefinite leave to remain straight away without having to complete a period of residence in the UK.
If this has been useful please kindly click accept so that I may be rewarded for my time. It will be gratefully received and you will be free to ask follow up questions.Kind regards,Tom
Thanks for your accept and very kind bonus.
If you apply for settlement and receive leave to remain for 27 months as is the case with a sucessful application on the basis of your marriage to a UK national then you will not need to apply for any kind of work permit at all. You will be permitted to work from the date the visa is stamped in your passport.
Similaly if the UKBA accept that you have been married for 4 years on the strength of the documents you submit and grant you indefinite leave to remain you will also be able to work.
You can work for any company, regardless of where they originate.
Worker's visas are for persons who do not have familial ties to the UK.
If you have any other questions at a late date feel free to request me.
Thanks again and good luck.
