Hello,

Just a quick question if anyone could assist. I'm a Military spouse ( British) and Hubby is US citizen ( US Army) we are expecting out first baby in August. I will be going to the UK to give birth and then a few months later will return to Germany were we are stationed. My question is, will we be able to apply for both US & UK passports for our baby once she is born. I do believe she will automatically become a British Citizen after birth and so I can apply for her British passport, I'm just a little confused if we are able to apply for an American Passport for her also.

Any Advice would be great. Thank you in advance.

Yes you can. I am British and my husband is American too and our baby was born in England. I got my daughters British passport the same way as normal, just fill in the forms and post it off with the birth certificate.

Her American passport we are yet to do, we need to first register her birth as a US citizen born abroad. We can then apply for her passport and social security card at the same time (this is all at an interview at the embassy in London). There are forms to fill in etc. If you want any details or links to the forms you need, feel free to drop me a message and i will give you the info :)

I understand that, however, I'm not having my baby in Germany. I will be travelling to the UK to have my daughter, and I will be applying for her SSN, US passport and to register her Birth at the US Embassy in London. I did some research and some help from a very helpful member on this site, and all we do is fill out the forms once my daughter is born, with the Birth certificate, all the other documents we require which we have, make a infopass appointment and everything can be taken care off at one appointment.

I am pretty sure that the British are stricter with their rules. So friends that I have here in the UK always applied for their children's UK passports first then they applied for the US. Latest here in the UK is that you must have an appt at the embassy and the USC must be present to report the birth abroad and complete the passport application. You can always wait until you get to Germany if that is were the father is to do this.
