Applying for children's passports

My wife and I had 3 children age 7, 4, 3 respectively the oldest has passport and the other 2 don’t have because they were born after 2005 when can we apply passport for them.

You should apply straight away for the three-year-old and this in turn will strengthen your application for citizenship for both of you and the remaining two children.  Regarding the right to apply for a passport for the others, because they were born after 1st January 2005 they cannot do so because of a constitutional amendment and statutory provisions made under it. 

 

If you wish to travel abroad before you obtain citizenship you may be entitled to a temporary passport to ensure your right to travel under a variety of treaties and conventions that exist.  You should consult the Immigrant Council or an immigration lawyer to discuss this.

 

When you do get citizenship, you get an automatic right to a passport.
