Call for Evidence

Citizenship and Passport Processes in Northern Ireland

The Committee would welcome the submission of written evidence that addresses:

  • the interaction between UK nationality law and Articles 1 (v) and (vi) of the Belfast/Good Friday Agreement,and any engagement with the ECHR;
  • whether the Government should consider implementing changes to citizenship rules and requirements to better incorporate the birthright commitments of the Agreement into UK law; and
  • whether the Government should allow Northern Ireland residents born in the Republic of Ireland to apply for a British passport given that Northern Ireland residents can currently apply for an Irish passport.

This call for written evidence has now closed.
