  • LAWYER RESPONSE Dual British/EU citizens entering the UK on valid EU passport

    My kids are dual British/Dutch nationals (living in the UK); can they enter the UK on a valid Dutch passport and an expired British one? (Asking as for a large family it’s fairly costly to keep both passports valid.)

    Note, I am aware they cannot apply for EUSS as they are British, and their Dutch passports need to stay valid as otherwise they can lose their Dutch nationality.)

    Thank you

    Tim M (lawyer) Would you be able to comment on this? An interesting point that will, not doubt, be relevant to a number of people.

    I am the Site Manager and Webmaster, please refer to our Admin Team, Roles and Responsibilities. If you think we have helped in any way, please support us so we can keep helping others secure their status, it is now more important than ever now EEA nationals are subject to the same immigration requirements as non EEA nationals and require proof of valid status in the UK.

      I believe that as British citizens they should enter on valid British passports. Now that the UK has left the EU, a Dutch passport holder can only be admitted as a visitor (unless they have an actual visa for something else)

      I am an Immigration Adviser with Commonwealth Immigration. I am also a volunteer with UKCEN, where I provide one-off advice on a pro-bono basis. This advice should not be considered a substitute for formal legal advice. Please see Tim M for full details.
