Hello everyone,

I wonder if anyone could help me. I am Romanian and I got married with an Indian and at the moment we are living in Mumbai. We are planning to have a child in the near future and what I would like to know is the following:

1. If the child is born in India can the child get Romanian nationality? I know that India does not give dual nationality.

2. If the Romanian nationality is given, then where does one need to go to get the Romanian birth certificate and also the passport done? Do we have to go to the Romanian Embassy in Delhi or can it be done in Mumbai?

Thank you.

I have moved your query to a more appropriate forum.

Yes, under Romanian law it appears the child would be considered a Romanian citizen.

Romania has a consulate in Mumbai; presumably they offer passport services, but you may wish to call and verify.

India's no-dual-citizenship policy does have an exception for children (like yours) born in India who are eligible for two nationalities by birth. However, it is of limited value as the Indian authorities still expect you to carry only one passport.

I think your child's birth certificate is given by the hospital you give birth in. The Romanian govt would be able to give a passport, not a birth cert to a child born in another country.
