    Is nationality where a person is born? Or where they're orginally from? I'm confused.
    Nationality has to do with legality. If a nation counts you as a national, then you have that country's nationality. Having a country's nationality usually means you have rights such as a passport from that country. But that's not necessarily true.

    A British person born in England without nationality of India is not Indian by nationality despite an Indian background.
    (Original post by Freaky.certified)
    Your nationality is your race.
    Completely wrong. Nationality, as the term suggests, has to do with the nation.

    When you go to a foreign country and fill in the immigration form, in the nationality box you don't say "white". You say basically where your passport is from.
    (Original post by 0to100)
    Hehe. Nationality like the countries/nations/isles of your background/parents if you're an immigrant.So nationality as in English, Irish, Pakistani, Chinese...
    Not really. It's not necessarily a background but only about your relationship with certain nations. If you are Chinese, you are a Chinese national, which usually means you have rights such as having a Chinese passport; but you don't have to be ethnically Chinese and you don't have to ever been to China.

    If you're an immigrant, it is not necessarily the case that you can have a non-British nationality. A Chinese person turning British will have their Chinese nationality revoked because China does not allow for dual citizenship/nationality.

    It's arguable whether
    (Original post by 0to100)
    Nationality is nation like England, India...
    It's debatable whether English is a nationality. Since it's considered a "nation" it should be, but since it doesn't issue its own passport no-one would say "English" when asked about nationality on a form because they would mean nothing legally speaking.
    (Original post by 0to100)
    Nationality is the country you were born and raised but people like to rep their parent's nation too if they differ
    Wrong on nationality. That is usually the case but not always.

    For example, Taiwan (Republic of China) claims all of Greater China as its territory and legally counts every permanent resident in the region a national of Republic of China (Taiwanese/Chinese). This is despite the fact that most people in the region will not have ever been to Taiwan. But technically, as long as a nation counts you as a nationality, that is a nationality of yours.

    People born and registered for the nationality before 1997 in Hong Kong are British nationals. China, at the same time, counts them as Chinese nationals/citizens. This means they are British and Chinese nationals. They don't have to ever been to the UK or China, let alone being born-and-raised in either country.

    ethnicity is the proper categorisation based on geographic area
    Wrong.

    Ethnicity can be formed with any cultural root, including by language or religion. Does not have to be based on geographical area - one notable example is the ethnic group "Jewish".

    So, if a person is born in England but parents are from Pakistan. That makes their nationality, Pakistani?
    Only if Pakistan the country considers this person a national of the country. Otherwise, no.

    I bet you are. So what part of India are you or your folks from?The West part; Mumbai.I was not born in India, but London, UK.My parents were born scattered around the place.I don't know why, but I'm an Indian.
    Your nationality can only be Indian if India the country considers you a national of their country. Otherwise, no.

    I'm a U.S. citizen and lived there for five years but I'm the UK now and have been for ten or so years.That being said I really dunno what nationality I am. I don't feel at home in the UK because people love to make fun of me for my accent and I'm not familiar enough with the U.S. because I've been gone for so long - so I'm kinda alienated when I go there because I'm not familiar with the culture e.g. freshman, sophomores etc. What does it mean?!
    Nationality has absolutely nothing to do with accent, identity, culture, or length of residency. Your nationality is American going by what you said and definitely not British.
    (Original post by Abby3112)
    I'm mostly British (not very exciting family haha) though my great grandfather was from Denmark I believe
    Impossible. Your nationality can't be "mostly British". You either are British or you are not; you either are Danish or you are not. You can be both and you can potentially be neither, but there's no in between.

    Still trying to figure that one out
    Unless you are a stateless refugee how can you still be figuring that out?

    If you are a national of a certain country, that is your nationality. If you don't know what your nationality is, then you are a stateless person and would have no civil right anywhere in the world except to apply for asylum.

    Arab is not a nationality because it is not a nation.
    (Original post by sfaraj)
    british, iraqi, turkish (wish i was more. maybe one day i'll do an ancestery test but £80? nahh)
    You can't find out your nationality with an ancestry test. Nationality has nothing to do with ancestry.
    (Original post by donutaud15)
    Both and I wouldn't describe myself as Filipina. Best explain it I guess. Grandma is half Chinese and half Filipina with Italian ancestry. Grandad is half Spanish and half Filipino. So mum is a mixed of all of the above and therefore I'm half all that and the other half is Indian cos of my Dad. That's why I could never describe my nationality and I usually just go with my passport which is Italian.
    In this case your nationality Italian. Everything else is irrelevant.

    Wrong. You are either a national of a certain nation or you are not. You can't possible if half American.

    Nationality is not ethnicity.
