@jonboy7,

Yes, but note that southern Ireland is a separate country....usually called Ireland, or Eire, while the six counties of the north are called Ulster or Northern Ireland, and are part of the UK.

(A bit of Ulster is outside the UK too)

@jonboy7,
Actually, yes. England and Ireland are both part of the European union which allows citizens from the other countries permission to work in the others without a work permit.

@mloftus11,
I hate to break it to you but there is no such thing as Scottish citizenship. All Scots are British citizens.

Next, although I was born in Scotland and my sons are dual citizens, their kids are not.

If neither you nor at least one of your parents were not born there, you are not eligible for British citizenship.

As they say, there are only two types of people in the world, those that are Scots - and those that wish they were...

I was born in Scotland to US parents that were there for US Navy. I am about 50-60 % Scottish by blood and on both sides of my family. My birth certificate is from Scotland and I know of my families ancestry through clans Forbes on my mothers side and Chisholm on my fathers. I am over 18 and was considered to naturally become a US citizen at 18. Would I be considered a British citizen, and if not would it be possible for me to use my birth as part of citizenry...I ask this due to my father being US military and not a Scottish citizen.

@Slayerog,
I am assuming that you did not renounce British citizenship when becoming a naturalized American citizen. If such is the case your birth certificate from Scotland should suffice.

@McTag,
When I did a post graduate program at University of Saint Andrews I did very well in my studies, in spite of being a yankee who normally only had lemonade with lunch every day at the pub with my classmates and professors. When I'd passed my comprehensive exams, one prof indicated that I still needed to prove I could be one of the guys, so we went to the pub and I matched him 3 shots chased by 3 pints of 80 bob. He congratulated me that he'd underestimated me and I was right in there with the rest (despite being American and a woman, in a maritime archaeology program with a bunch of burly guys). That said, I haven't a clue how I managed to walk home.

@Tantrumfly,
My wives dad was born at CarronShore , Falkirk. So she would have to apply for Scottish passport, with her dad birth certificate, and his marriage certificate

@cjansson,
She would have to apply for a British passport.
I wish all those US citizens who wants to get a Scottish citizenship knew just a tiny bit more about Scotland and it is part of Britain.

@cicerone imposter,
How can they confuse Ireland and Scotland when they say that father or mother or a grandparent were Scottish?
