The e-Borders system will not negatively affect travellers who hold dual nationality. Data from travel documents presented by dual nationals on inbound and outbound journeys will be transmitted to e-Borders and screened against watchlists as normal. Key facts, such as an individual's date of birth, will remain the same, irrespective of the travel document they use. Any discrepancies will continue to be addressed by UK Border Agency staff at the border.
