United Kingdom - flag United Kingdom - Passport & Nationality - Non-Arabian Ancestry in Qatar

Those persons who are not considered of Arab ancestry cannot obtain citizenship, and hold a passport, of Qatar. Because of Britain's influence in Qatar - Oman was a British Protected State up to 03.09.1971 - it is possible that people whose parents and grandparents were born in territories outside of the Arabian peninsula have old Colonial claims to British Nationality.

While many people qualify for the UK Ancestry Visa based on holding a Commonwealth passport with a UK born grandmother or grandfather, we have found that if you have a grandparent born in the UK, or if your mother is British or your father is British, then there are several scenarios where you can claim British Nationality and the right to hold a British Passport. This stems from Britain’s collection of British Colonies, British Protectorates and British Protected States in the middle of last century and the Nationality rules concerning what are now the countries of the Commonwealth.
