    Question Someone's nationality

    When asking someone's nationality we usually make the following question: " What nationality is she /he?"
    I wonder if " What is your nationality?" is correct.
    Best regards,

    "What is your nationality." is how an immigration official would ask.

    In ordinary conversation, you would ask,"What country are you from?"
