We are going to France in 2 weeks but we have a problem with DD1 british passport. She was born before our marriage so she only has a french passport but we did aplly for her british passport in May in same time as DD2 who were born after marriage...they just got back to us saying that in DD1's case they need the translation of our wedding certificate...WE ARE GOING IN 2's no way we'll have her british passport on time. She has a french passport so my question is :

Do you think they are going to let us go at the border with Dh and his english passport, me with my french ID, DD1 with her french passport, DD2 with her british passport.

Yes, I should think so. Do you have birth certificates for the DDs? If so I'd bring those just to be on the safe side, but I can't see any reason there should be a problem.

I would have thought so.

You just need official ID to get around in Europe but I don't think you all need the same type - just as long as they can work out who everyone is...

No reason they shouldn't. Why do you think this would be a problem?

Thank you for your answers !!! I was panicking a bit !

If you really want her British passport, then you can pay the post office to check your form and then you get it back much quicker - I got DS2's back in about 5 days. Maybe they could help you with this as well.

But like the others say, I would have thought it would be ok, as you're travelling from EU country to EU country. Also you're on French ID, so it isn't that strange that one of your children might have a French passport.

It doesnt look dodgy to you 2 kids with 2 different nationalities ?

quiveutmabonnebaguette Thu 19-Jul-07 19:24:43

we paid them to of our child dd1 was born before our wedding so she could only befrench, now we are married, she can have the british nationality, but they didnt tell us they needed the english translation of our wedding certificate.

My two children are different nationalities, as are dh and I - has not been a problem for us so far.

they barely glance at the passports anyway if they all have a purple cover!
