Dual Passports

edited November 2011 in Visa and Passport

I have a question will I be in trouble with UK Immigration if I exit the UK using my British Passport, but using my SA passport to enter and exit South Africa, and then enter the UK with my Brisith passport?

Will UK Immigration querry where have I travelled? If I told them I was in South Africa, will they ask why didn't I use my British passport to enter SA as there were no stamps? I hope not to get into trouble with UK Borders with my British passport.

Any advice would be grateful.

Many thanks.

    Jay - you will be completely fine, at both ends of the trip. This process is quite normal and followed by many dual nationals every day. Immigration has no interest in where you've been only if your passort is valid on entry. No need to worry!

    That's a relief, David. Thanks for your help.
