20. What passports do you hold?

Why we ask this question

Your answer helps local and central government understand more about the citizens of other countries living in England and Wales.

The information helps your local authority to understand how your community is made up and which services people have access to. They will use it to plan things like housing, education, social services and healthcare in your area.

Your local authority can use this information to understand more about the movement of people in your area now and in the future. They can then assess which services the area may need and the cost of them.

The census first asked this question in 2011.

Select a box for each passport you hold.

You can include an expired passport or travel document here, as long as you think you are entitled to renew it.

Otherwise select "None".

Passports or documents not issued in the UK or Ireland

Select the "Other" option and enter your other passports in the space provided.

If you have other travel documents that show you're a citizen of the issuing country, for example, an ID card, please complete the question as if the travel document were a passport.

You can enter more than one passport or travel document, for example "France" and "Kenya".

What is the United Kingdom (UK)?

The full title of this country is the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.

The UK is made up of England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.

The Channel Islands and the Isle of Man are not part of the UK.

Enter the name of the country

When entering the name of a passport, use the name of the country that issued your passport.

It may be possible to shorten the name of the issuing country. For example if your passport was issued in the United States of America, you can enter "USA" or "America".

Use the current country name

Enter the current name of the country if the issuing country has changed its name.
