My guess is you apply for a different visa......you should probably check with your embassy, as it would have the most accurate info on what you should do.

If your baby will be born in UK, he/she will be a British Citizen automatically and a British Passport. You will gain rights to remain and your boyfriend is an EU Citizen, so I don't think there is a problem.

Babies are beautiful and they didn't ask to come to this world.. meaning you made the right choice :D But why he doesn't want to marry you?

You made a right choice, Wanrawin. Trust me, once you have the baby in your arms - there is no higher high in this world. One second with your baby is worth 1000 times the hardship you'll have to go through to get there. Congratulations.

Wrong!!!! The baby has the same status as the parents...so if she is on a visa when the visa is all gone, she is gone with it along with the baby....

Good luck

hi there,
i was told that my child WILL NOT get Brtish citizenship although he/she will be getting a british birth certificate and after 5 years if the child is still living in the U.K she/he can apply then. Right now we will be appling for a Polish passport from the consul in edinburgh as my husband is Polish. I think things are abit simpler 'paper wise' if you are married.

That is correct. Being born in the UK does not entitle a child to a British passport. My cousin's baby was born in UK but does not have a British passport (both parents are Polish) and will not be getting one because the family have now moved back to Poland.

However, any child who has one Polish parent automatically receives Polish citizenship. If one of the parents a citizen of another state, the parents may renounce the child's Polish citizenship but must do so within three months of birth and the child may rfe-acquire Polish citizenship if he/she so chooses. If one parent is Polish and the other is unknown or of unknown or undefined citizenship or does not possess any citizenship, the parents can not renounce the child's Polish citizenship.

As the mother of a Polish citizen (i.e. an EU citizen), you can apply for an EEA Family Permit visa to live in any EU member state other than Poland or for a Polish residence permit to live in Poland. You should be automatically entitled to either of these visas (depending on where you want to live).

Hope this helps and good luck.

Why should she? being born in a country does not entitle you to a passport...

he/she will be getting a british birth certificate and after 5 years

Why neither of you are British? Go get an Indian one or a Tibetan one or a Polish one!

However, any child who has one Polish parent automatically receives Polish citizenship.

There you go, simple!

not in the UK perhaps.. it does in the US as of right now. that may change someday as the way things are, it only contributes to the immigration issues that are present in america.

Some think that too, not that it makes any difference people just stay here regardless

Anyway 7 minutes and Im going home...

Well that would very much depend on whether the country applies jus soli or jus sanguinis, doesn't it?

The UK of course used to apply the jus soli principle but now it follows the jus sanguinis principle so that the country can run away from its commitment to the commonwealth.

According to u its not credible. Crediblity is a combination of facts and opinion. My professor's opinion is that I am very credible. =) okay so i make a woopsie with the polish remark. The fact still is she got accidentally knocked up and her BF doesn't want to marry her. So y not terminate it and save them both the misery? Her english is terrible it me to believe she was polish! =)

I was in the same situation. So either I was extremely lucky, or I am just right

Yea I don't think just because it's born in the Uk means it has citizenship. I know in Ireland if you have a kid there it doesn't get citizenship if the parent doesn't and I think they recently passed that law too.
