Unless you work for the British diplomatic service etc and originally recruited in UK, your husband has to live in UK for 3 years before being eligible to apply for naturalisation as British citizen. To move to UK, he will need a spouse settlement visa. Your children, if you are British citizen otherwise than by descent (i.e. born, adopted, registered or naturalised in UK or in British overseas territories - e.g. Gibraltar), are British citizens from birth. They are British citizens by descent.I am a british citizen now living in morocco.I have been married for 10 years with two kids and I am wondering if my husband qualifies for a british passport even though we are living abroad.
