I'm due to give birth to our second child on 27th October and we are returning to the UK for a visit on 15th December - mad I know! I was just wondering if anyone has been in a similar situation and knows if we need to get both a British and an Australian passport for the baby? We are permanent residents but don't yet have Aus citizenship. I assume that he/she will need an Australian passport at the very least in order to re-enter Australia as they aren't listed on our visa, but do we need to get a British one right now as well? Obviously we will get the baby a British passport at some stage but weren't sure if it was required for this trip. And is it ok to travel on 2 different passports? I have read the advice given on other forums but found it all a bit confusing so would be grateful if anyone can help.
And also, is it necessary to get the baby an Australian citizenship certificate right now? Apologies for yet another question and many thanks!
