To be eligible for a British Passport you MUST have British Nationality. If you are a highly skilled professional on a Tier 2 General visa you can apply for Permanent Residence in the UK after 5 years on Tier 2 General and then British Nationality after a further 1 year on Permanent Residence status.
A British Passport will allow you not only to work freely in the UK but also throughout the European Economic Area (EEA). This means that if you are a highly skilled IT, Engineering, Medical or Financial Services professional holding a UK passport will not only open up the UK jobs market but also the rest of the EEA.
