Children with dual nationality
If your child has dual nationality, and if there are any parental custody issues, it’s important to get advice before you consent to a passport being issued for them or agree to them travelling to another country (even if you’re travelling with them).
Be particularly careful if your child’s proposed destination is a country that:
- Is not party to the Hague Convention on International Child Abduction.
- Has a legal system with a reputation for favouring one gender or religion above the other in relation to family matters.
Laws regarding surrogacy and standards of healthcare vary from country-to-country.
Be sure to check our country-specific travel advice pages for further information, and always consult with the relevant professionals before you enter into a surrogacy arrangement.
