Scottish Passport

Jump to last reply

IF they vote Yes in tomorrow's referendum, at some point down the road they will have to start issuing Scottish Passports. But what might happen in the meantime?

For example, suppose you are a Scot who plans to take a first trip outside of Scotland over Xmas/New Year but have not yet applied for a passport? It isn't likely they will issue you a UK passport is it and Scottish passports will not be available that quickly. No trip?

Or how about if you are currently on a long term trip and your UK passport is going to expire in 6 months. Normally, you would renew your passport through an Embassy. That isn't going to be possible either.

Or how about if you are an expat living in another country long term? What affect might it have? Bear in mind that expats are not allowed to vote in this referendum. So an expat who would have voted NO, can't just move south of the border, maintain UK citizenship and a UK passport.

I can picture all kinds of nightmare scenarios just as a result of this one little change alone.
