To ask Her Majesty's Government what assessment they have made of the risks to border security of dual nationals using international passenger survey or paper-based landing cards listing only a single nationality.
Answered on: 26 October 2017

There is no requirement for a passenger to declare their dual nationality status on arrival to the United Kingdom. A Border Force officer will examine the document a passenger chooses to present on arrival and complete the mandatory checks outlined in the Border Force Operating Mandate.

A Border Force officer will only grant entry to a passenger once they have satisfactorily established their nationality, identity and immigration status in the UK and that they do not pose a security risk.
