    My parents are British (ethnic Chinese) and I was born in HK, so I became British by descent. My husband is a local HK-er

    My daughter was born in HK and I was able to get a British passport for her. At first the consulate asked for my naturalisation papers (which I've never ever had), all I had were some of my previous passports (not the very first baby one though). It took them about 3-4 weeks to do some investigating back in the UK before we got everything approved.

    So its really important to keep those old passports unlike my parents who were unaware how important these things will become in like 30 years time ....

    The form for the eligibility sticker on the passport is:-

    although I've yet to get one for my daughter. It's quite an easy process apparently.

    Thanks for that Rani, I haven't spoken to the consulate since my son was born, but I might just contact them now.

    I will be travelling to UK in mid-Jun and need to get a British Passport for my son. I am a full British Passport holder as I was born in UK hence my son will not have a problem gaining one. When is the best time to apply for my son's passort as I do not know how long it take to process one? Do I need to go in person with my baby or is there a postal system and I pick up the passport in person? Appreciate any advice.

    I would reccomend visiting the british consulate website here in hk.
    You can apply for passport in person, or by post. It doesn't take that long, but the earlier you apply, faster it will be done. When you fill in the application form it asks you when you will be travelling, so assume they take that into account when processing it.
    Not sure if it takes longer to get a brand new passport, than to reapply for an existing one.
    All the info. is on the consulate website. They are also very helpful if you need any advice.
