I couldn't decide where to post this, so mods please move if it'd be better elsewhere.
My wife will be having our first child soon. I'm in the UK on a tier 2 visa and she is here exercising EU rights (employed, full time permanent contract).
The child will be a dual US/Italian national, and we planned travel to Italy shortly after the birth. My partner greatly underestimated the bureaucratic hurdles involved in getting an Italian passport.
Would it be possible to travel to Italy using an American passport? I assumed that that wouldn't be possible, because they would be wanting the baby to have a UK visa when re-entering the UK on a US passport.
On another note, is there anything I need to do with the baby and my visa? I assume no as the baby can legally reside in the UK as an Italian based on her mother's EU rights.
