what is the nationality of a baby born on cruise ship ? | Travel & Vacation Tips & Resources

what is the nationality of a baby born on cruise ship ?

cruise ship
Gotham asked:

If a cruise ship leaving from Los Angeles and going to Ensenada, Mexico has a woman who gives birth, what will be the nationality of the baby? Will it matter where it is born ? So it could be born in the following locations:
1. In dock at port of Los Angeles
2. At sea in US waters
3. At sea in international waters
4. At sea in Mexican waters
5. At dock in Ensendada, Mexico

The ship is registered in Panama. So i dont know if that matters.
We plan to take a cruise in December and wanted to know this.
Would the baby have the same nationality of the parents ? We are Indian citizens working in the US.

    You cannot cruise if you are that close to a due date, sorry.

    Ok that can’t happen as cruise lines won’t let pregnant women over 24 weeks gestation board as they may go into premature labor.

    Since we know that cruise lines won’t let woman that are 6 months or more pregant on board.

    For matter of the question, let’s assume the woman can be on board.

    First of all, you should check with your home country as to nationality requirement.

    The US laws states that anyone born within the borders of the US can claim US citizenship. Also any child born to US citizens, regardless of the location of birth can claim US citizenship.

    The US has strict dual citizenship laws, so be careful before you decide which citizenship you claim for the child.

    Since I work for Princess, I know that If you’re in your third trimester, we won’t let you on. Period.

    Legally, though, it takes the nationality of the parents, and you’d need a certificate of birth from the place where the baby was born, then using that to get a US birth certificate. In intl waters, i dont know…
