Hi

Thanks for your patience.

http://www.ukba.homeoffice.gov.uk/britishcitizenship/othernationality/Britishcitizenship/borninukorqualifyingterritory/

Therefore, you can apply for a UK passport by producing your UK birth certificate:-

Canada allows dual citizenship so your obtaining UK citizenship and getting a passport should not be a problem.

However, if you are coming to the UK on your Canadian passport you will be able to enter without applying for a visa before you travel anyway..

Thankyou for you answer. Actually I am wondering seeing as I was born in England do I have any rights for medical treatment if I require it. It's not an issue with me, as I have purchased the necessary travel insurance. Just it was suggested to me that I may have rsidence status.

Hi,

Not for a visit, no. The criteria that you should permanently reside in the UK, which you don't so unless you are you able to provide evidence that you were to resume permanently living in the UK you will be charged for the medical care that you receive here.

You should therefore make sure you have travel insurancce until such time as you are able to prove you intend to reside here permanently.

Please remember to rate my answer.

Kind regards
