    Hopefully Simon has someone in the UK to help whilst his daughter goes to school and he finds work. . And one positive is his daughter will get a better education now.

    Best wishes to them both.
    One of the posts on the GoFundMe page by his sister said the Thai “birth certificate still needs to be translated and then needs to get a UK birth certificate”.

    ^ my daughter doesn't have a UK birth cert, I didn't bother paying the 6 or 8k it was for registration at the time. She is on her second British passport though.

    You don't need to register at all to get her a British passport, just need to translate the Thai birth certificate.

    I think there was one small benefit for registering in UK although can't think what that was now.
    Probably just that she has a UK birth certificate for registering with doctors and schools back in Blighty.

    ^ Is there a UK government ID number or some such thing?

    In Ireland it was previously called the PRSI number, but since changed to the PPSN. Need that nowadays to open a bank account, register for school, to become legally employed, medical card, driving license, beneficiary of an Irish will, and wiping yer arse, among many others.

    Cool.

    Was able to set it up for sproglette last time she was there (aged 4 or 5), need it for banking, study and employment, gotta have everything set up as soon as possible, 2 passports, Gov ID numbers, bank accounts, Thai and Western wills in case I drop dead.


    Without any disrespect to Simon, I find it amazing the amount of fathers of dual-national children who simply don't set anything up, not even a Western passport for them.

    ^fluke comes to mind...

    And yes, I can't understand why any parent won't /didn't fix their child's papers, especially if they have the means and education to do so (this goes for any nationality)

    RIP Sunan... Best of luck to Simon and Padme...

    I traveled frequently alone with my daughter, ( same last name) multiple times to the states and throughout SE Asia from when she was six till she moved to America at 18 for uni.
    never had any problem or any question asked

    If the mother is still alive, ie never married or divorced, it has to go through the legal route of the Thai mother relinquishing her legal guardianship of their child, and giving the alien father sole guardianship in Thailand.

    He can then get visa extensions based on guardianship and take the child in and out of Thailand without the need for the mother's documented consent.
    I had sole guardianship of my daughter thru the thai family court, but that never came up anywhere

    EXCEPT
    Is necessary to get passports, till she is of age, ( i recall like 12 or something that only one parent had to sign, that was for US and Thai passports), he will need the death certificate to get her UK passport and future thai passport ( i dont know her age) without the moms signature

    To not get your kid her rightful 2nd passport is a crime, as its little money

    Parents put there be advised,,,,do it...

    ^ Opposite experience to me, and friends.

    One mate out in Isaan messed up a visa run as was going to Sav to do the dodgy Multi-Entry Non-O and took his 8 yr old daughter with him. Didn't have the consent to travel form from the Amphur, and wasn't allowed take the kid out of the country, which meant taking her back to the mother and then back to do the VR a day or two later.

    I don't think she'll actually have or get a UK birth certificate if she has a Thai one. I'm pretty sure you can only have one birth certificate. I think the advantage of registering the birth with the UK is that it means she is in the UK system and the authorities can access those records if required. It might also make it easier to prove UK citizenship if the child ever loses her passport or original Thai birth certificate, or if the child's British parent dies or disappears.

    It would indeed be odd if one could have several birth certificates.

    I guess dill means a certified translation of the Thai birth certificate.

    ^^ That was it Nev and the main reason to get that British passport as soon as possible.

    Concur. When my son was born in Japan back in 1985 it seems to me the first order of business was getting the US passport.

    The latest update.

    Yes, Simon had registered his daughter with the embassy, they picked up her passport last week and left for the UK this week.

    He is ever so grateful for everyone's help in bridging the atrociously difficult times he's had these last few months . . . it's astounding that people who have never met him and don't know him were willing to dig into their pockets.

    Also, from me to you - thank you. Your contributions made his and his daughter's lives a little less difficult

    Great stuff.


    Wish them all the best in these terribly difficult times.

    At least the daughter will have all the benefits of a British education and nationality.


    I dare say her mother would look down and be happy with that.
