My son in in the UK. He was born there as were his parents, grandparents and great grandparents (probably more generations too). He has a job, but has been told he can't continue to work without a UK passport as he arrived on a NZ one. It will take as least 2 weeks to get a UK passport and in the meantime he may lose his job. Why is he not classed as a citizen as his cousins who have always lived there are? Nothing else is different?

Hello,I am happy to deal with your UK immigration law issues.Your son is already a British Citizen as he was born in the UK to parents who were also born in the UK.He does not need a British passport to prove that he is a British Citizen and entitled to work in the UK, however, a passport will assist in proving his claim to British Citizenship.If he has never held a UK passport before, he will need to attend a passport interview if he is an adult. Thank you
Thanks. My son has passed your response on to his employer who is keen to help him. If he contacts me with further concerns I will refer him to you, but in the meantime we will try to get a British passport organised.
