Aussie Citizen, British Passport??

What's the deal with working in other EU countries?
7 years ago, April 11th 2010 No: 1 Msg: #108436  
I'm an Australian citizen and passport holder, but my Father is a British citizen, making me eligible for a British passport. Next year I'm heading to Europe (Northern Ireland and Germany, at this stage) and am wondering about work and residency visas.

Most countries have separate laws for EU and non-EU citizens, and I'm a bit unsure as to whether being a British passport-holder (but not a British citizen) allows me to apply for the (much easier to obtain) EU citizen work visas?

Any help would be amazing! Reply to this

Hi Rachel, I am a dual citizen of Australia and the UK. My father was born in the UK and I hold a British passport and it states in the passport that I am a British citizen. I have EU work rights etc. If you're planning to spend any time in the EU I would recommend that you get a British passport and I can't see any reason why you wouldn't get EU work rights as well.

That's what I thought but I was a bit worried that I couldn't find anything to confirm that. That's absolutely fantastic! Reply to this
