Province/Country relating to question : Greece
I was married to a Greek and had dual nationality. My daughter was adopted at the age of 3 months in 1971.She was brought up in Greece but came to England to university and worked here long enough to acquire British citizanship. She now is married and resident in Greece.All we need is information.
Thanks for your question.
The short answer to your question is yes the child will obtain UK Nationality if at least one of the parents has obtained UK Nationality other than by descent.
Once the child is born, the parents can apply to the UK Embassy in their country of residence for a UK Passport.
