You will also see that there are links to the form required to submit to the united kingdom border agency so that they will return this certificate.

Hallo Tom,

many thanks for your info.....but i donot understand why we now have to pay ,to proof that i am not a british citizen, and the previous 33 years not!!!

Thanks for your reply.

I'm afraid that it is a requirement imposed by the netherlands government.

I presume that this is required by them because they would not automatically receive notification of naturalization or acquisition of u k citizenship. Therefore they now require proof that you have not acquired british citizenship.

Sometimes countries do not permit dual nationality and so when a person acquires another form of citizenship this means that the citizenship is revoked.

I appreciate it's a bit of a pain and sympathize. I do think that you are better off big writing lee complying in this case.

Please remember to rate my answer.

Kind regards.

wy is it si difficult just to renew mine pasport.

It is a decision of the dutch government I'm afraid. I am a u k solicitor and so I am not particularly well placed to tell you why. However I believe it is because they do not automatically receive notification of when one of their citizens becomes a u k citizens and so they require this in order to check when you renew your passport.

It is a shame that they cannot take you at your worst however it is better to play by the rules because it would take less time.

Thanks for rating my answer.
