Foreign child passport

Is it necessary for a baby to have a passport immediately? Both parents are foreign but the baby was born here.

No. But make sure you have the birth certificate and registration from the hospital and your local commune. You will need those papers when applying for a passport.

You need to register your child and apply for a visa with the Immigration Dept. within 3 mths of the birth, fairly new regulations, so best to get the kids passport ASAP.

Why would you not? By and large, such things only get more difficult with time.

Exactly, and what if the family needs to leave the country in a hurry? A lot of countries no longer allow for children to enter/exit on their parents passports anymore. Seems irresponsible to wait in my opinion.

Example ...a Kiwi bloke married to a Khmer woman with 2 children together, recently passed away, several years after their children were born he had still not applied for their NZ Citizenship by Descent and passports, it is now going to be extremely difficult to get those documents for the children.

No excuses for that fucktardery.

Sorting out your kid's western citizenship should be HIGH PRIORITY after their birth. It is not overly hard ( AUS ) or expensive.
