I worked and lived in Scotland years between 1993 and 2002.

Customer Question

I worked and lived in Scotland for many years between 1993 and 2002 . Also I own a property in Glasgow which I rent out. I now live in norfolk . If Scotland get independence would I be eligible for a Scottish passport if I moved back to my property before the independence vote? I have a daughter born in England. Would she get a Scottish passport too? Also my partner of 9 years? I have my own training business so work can easily be relocated to Scotland. Please advise.

If you were living in Scotland with your family at the date of an independence vote then the chances are that you would qualify for a Scottish passport as would your family. However, any immigration laws regulating the nationality of the people of Scotland don't exist yet so it is difficult to give you a definitive answer save that residency and birth are two factors in determining the right to nationality. I hope that helps. Please leave a positive rating so that I am credited for my time.
