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.
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.
