Post Wed Aug 31, 2005 11:47 am

I am a Canadian Citizen, born and bred. My Mum, though, is from Scotland, and I would like to obtain a British Passport for when I travel. I have looked through the Canadian Passport websites and the UK passport websites and can find no information regarding how to obtain!!! PLEASE HELP, I think I am going to loose my mind!!!!!

I have no idea if you can get a passport in that situation. However, if you do a search for "British ancestry visa", you might find some related information.

I have actually found a way!! Through the British High Commission. As of 1979 - if either your father or Mother are from Britian, you can obtain a passport!!
Here is an email address for any of those looking as well!!

You beat me to it!

I was just going to say, a friend of mine and his wife both were born to british citizens (though they are 100% canadian) and the embassy said they are allowed British passports.

Pretty cool. I wish I could get a passport!

Information is on www.britainincanada.org
My mother was born in England and I got a UK passport. I was born in 1962. If your mother was born in England, then your date of birth matters. You can only get the passport if you were born between about 1960 and 1979 or you were born after 1983. Outside of that, you can get "Right of Abode" which is an entitlement they put in your Canadian passport. It gives you rights to permanently live and work in the UK. Almost citizenship except for a few issues. I got that too prior to being eligible for the passport.

Disregard the dates in my last post. From the website:
All those born overseas to a British mother between 7 February 1961 and 31 December 1982 are now eligible to register as British citizens retroactively. An application (UKM) and information can be obtained from this office or downloaded from the Home Office Web-site - http://www.ind.homeoffice.gov.uk/
If you are eligible for a passport, you need form UKM:

From my knowledge of how to obtain a EU passport that if your mother was born in Scotland then therefoe you are intitled to it. My best advice would be to find out where the local consulate for Scotland is in your city(sometimes they are only in the biggest cities) and contact them for more info. I know that these things take time, I am currently waiting for mine and its been a challenge all the way. I am not too sure on whether an UK passport is any different then an EU passport since isnt the UK part of the EU? But I am sure the steps on obtaining one is similar. Regardless, they are worth the effort and time because we will be able to live anywhere part of the EU for as long as we like! Good luck.
