7 months passport

We have now waited out 11 weeks to get the apointment at the Polish Consulate in London.
We needed to make one for each person each from a seperate email account (our 1 year old now has her own email address)No telephone bookings online only.

We went to London today to find the same tiny office as 15 years ago (although there a few more Poles in the UK now)and a huge queue outside and a poor man shoutin out over the passing trafic ' visas only now' 'Document pick up now' After an hour with 2 screaming kids we were seen, all forms filled out twice (copier is too easy) we waited in another queue to been seen, 1 hour later sorted. Simple, fantastic.

We can pick up the passports in 4 months.

Teraz Polska. What service

Lots of very dark skinned poles picking up their passports Dark greasy hair, lots of gold, shiny winkle pickers. Strange but true

Re: 7 months passport

Why do you want Polish passports for your children?

Re: 7 months passport

Lost ID cards.

My Mrs wants Polish ones, I will also sort out British ones too.

Re: 7 months passport

If you can have both, then this makes sense, I suppose.

Was it easy to get British passports with children born in Poland?

Re: 7 months passport

Hans - my son was born here in Poland and has a british passport (issued by the ever helpful embassy in warsaw).
He also needs his polish one to cross the border with.
