What nationality are you?
Sorry!! I am a British citizen by birth..
Thanks for your reply.
Your son will be a British citizen because of your UK citiizenship. It does not matter that your wife is not resident here or indeed British, or that the child will be born in Turkey.
He will be British by descent which means that his chlidren will not qualify for UK citizenship if they themselves are born outside of the UK.
You will have to produce the Birth Certificate showing you as father in order for the child to receive a UK passport.
