My daughter was born this year in South Africa. I'm a British citizen with British passport and permanent residency in the UK. My partner is South African and we are in the process of getting her a British passport which I don't see her having a problem getting.
The problem is that it is taking so long to get my South African girlfriend's unabridged birth certificate from Home Affairs which we need for my daughter's passport application. We want to travel to the UK in 8 weeks.
Is it acceptable for us to apply for a UK visa for my daughter on her South African passport, as I don't think her British passport will be processed in time for our departure? I'm not sure if UK immigration will insist on a British passport for my daughter to enter the UK as she is entitled to a UK passport.
