dual citizenship

I believe it would get UK citizenship through you, but after you register the birth/request a passport at the UK consulate/embassy of your area. I am from a European country (not the UK) as well and that's all I had to do.

I just googled this:

Registering a birth in the US

Consular Section, 3 March 2005

Please read the noted before downloading the application form

Notice to British-born parents applying to register the birth of a child

Although we welcome applications to register the births of children born in the USA to British-born parents, you should be aware that this is not obligatory.

A Registration certificate is a useful document to help establish a child's British nationality, but it is perfectly acceptable to apply directly for a British passport, without first registering the birth with us.

Nevertheless, we recommend that British parents born outside of the UK, and those people currently working in the USA on UK Government service, should register their child's birth using the forms on this website.

You can find the form and everything here .

OK, so Im wondering.....when my child is born, will it have dual citizenship of the USA AND the UK?? Or as it will be born in the states, will I have to apply for a visa for it for the UK should we ever decide to move there??
