Child 118 Citezen by descent queery.

Hi all.

i have a question about applying for citezenship by descent for my boy.

He is elligible as I am Aus cit. In the application though, it states I need to provide proof of citizenship of other countries. Now, when I was 14 i moved from Aus to UK with my mother. I was listed on her passport as a child. i lived there until I was 21 when I moved back, and have been back and forth. Anyway I now hold passports for UK and Aus (I applied for UK passport by simply renewing my own passport from my listing on my mothers passport)

I never formally applied for 'citizenship' and the only evidence of my UK nationality is my passport (which states UK national) (my aus passport states Aus Citizen)

i cant use a passport for proof anyway, but I am confused as to whether I am a UK citizen or not. Is UK national different from citizen, and do I need to provide something.

Whoa, sorry about the sloppy typing, hope it makes sense.

Thanks for any help you can provide.

I believe you need to be a UK citizen to be eligible for a UK passport. Most probably you are UK citizen by descent.
