So - assuming the worst. If I have the baby in the UK and my partner comes over to register himself as the father so that the baby has dual citizenship. Would that make the queue shorter if I apply for residency as the mother of a swedish citizen? By then I will already be on maternity leave and receiving my accrued benefits...

Sorry I posted the reply before I saw yours Martin!

Yes I'm thinking that might be the most sensible option ...

And in the meantime rent out my house and move in with family to save up a safety net, get a swedish language tutor and study for a TEFL certificate in the evenings.

Ok I think a plan is coming together!! :-)

You add him as the father on the UK birth certificate. At a UK Swedish consulate you can then register the child as being Swedish and he or she will be issued with a personal number. Your partner will then make sure he's registered as a parent and guardian (two differing statuses) with the relevant agencies here. How much it shortens the waiting time I don't know, as you are still an unmarried non eu national, but with a Swedish child.

It will happen. The UK has technically already left and it's now the transition phase. Whilst there might be a last minute fudge, which is the eu's normal style, many ... (show full quote)

Thanks again! I'm going to avoid getting involved in this little dispute :-) but continue to take advantage of your knowledge if that's ok!

So just so I can get this clear in my head, does the following sound like a viable plan:

1. Remain in UK for pregnancy and birth
2. My partner visits me in the uk for all important scans
3. Assume that after 31 December he can get a tourist visa or visitor visa for these short trips?
4. Partner comes to UK for the birth
5. Document father on birth certificate
6. Go to UK swedish consulate and register the baby as Swedish dual citizen
7.registrr my partner as parent and guardian at appropriate agencies in UK
8. Travel to sweden on visitor visa with the baby as soon as safe to fly with newborn
10. Begin cohabiting partner residence permit application


One question about the registration as parent and guardian - presumably we are both registering as parent and guardian? I wouldnt want to risk a scenario where the authorities can keep me from my baby if only my partner is listed as guardian??

Also - would I actually have to apply for residency from within the UK? Can I travel to sweden for us to be together while waiting for the application to be processed? Or stay in UK until a decision has been made? I'd want to limit the time apart from my partner as much as possible and dont want to be separated from the baby at all.

Also if we marry in the interim would that make any difference? We were always intending to marry anyway - and I would ideally like to be married before the birth just cos I'm a bit old fashioned.

I've managed to get an appointment with am immigration lawyer in Sweden in November so want to get as much knowledge as possible before that appt.

What do you guys think?

On point no.7 it's your partner who needs to make sure the baby is registered with Swedish agencies once they are given a personal number. And yes, you both need to be parent and guardian. It's more to do with schooling, health decisions, a passport you'd both need to sign paper work or authorise online.

Marriage will help, but so will having evidence of however long your relationship has been, holidays, travel together etc...

Much depends on the Brexit deal over travel rights and employment.

Sounds your best bet, once you come over to visit go to migrationsverket and start your residency application ASAP, and when you are with the baby here register as mother/custody of child


Do you mean start my residency application on my next visit or when I come after the baby is born?
