In my work, I am deployed to a number of countries, Malawi and Tanzania being the most recent.
I will soon be applying for a British Passport (fully entitled by ancestry).
This would work in the company's favour as they would not need to a for Visas when I need to be deployed (in one of these 173 countries)
My question is, would it be acceptable for me to ask my company to sponsor the costs involved? The way I see it, I cannot be declined (both my parents and their parents were born in the UK and my father is still a British citizen). If so, how would I approach this? would I weigh up the pros and cons when speaking with my manager/HR?
I didn't quite make my nationality clear, I currently am a South Africa citizen.
I have spoken to others in my company that are currently dual-citizens and they have said it should be a personal expense.
