Passport Question

17 Sep 2010 Aussie_stewie said

I’m an Auzzie but my dad is born in the U.K so that means I’m eligible to get a British passport.<BR><BR>I’m doing the UE + Egypt next year so i will be going to Egypt and Turkey which are not in Europe so my question is should i bother getting a British passport as well as my Auzzie one?<BR><BR>I’ve been told its much easier to get around in Europe with a British one but then others have told me it makes no difference.

    Dude sorry read this late. Take it.

    Airports have ‘eu’ and ‘non eu’ lines. Much easier to get around in general. No harm in taking it whatsoever. It is much, much easier to get around. I understand you won’t be going to other countries but you are doing the UE. Take it Smiler<!--graemlin::)-->
