multiple passports

Postby elfinmom » Thu Mar 03, 2011 10:02 pm

I now have dual UK and USA citizenship. If I want to go back to UK for a visit, which passport do use and when?

I'm guessing that I use the US passport to book the ticket, enter UK on my UK passport and then when I return use the US passport. But I want to make sure I'm doing it right.

cheers!

Congratulations.

Your thoughts are correct, you could if you wish enter the uk on your US passport, I can't see why you would want to unless the uk one had expired.
However you MUST enter the US using your US passport.

I'm also about to travel for the first time with both passports to the UK (via Toronto) and I think when my husband booked the ticket, he gave the airline my UK passport details. Does that complicate things? I'm assuming I can still fly out on my UK passport (as in, give that one at check-in because those are the details the airline has), arrive in the UK on that passport, and then present the UK passport at check-in when flying out of the UK but enter the US on the US one. Is that right?

Thanks so much!
