Google has updated its passport search results to list Scotland as one of the EU countries where it has to apply for a passport to access goods and services from the UK.
Google said the changes to the map were part of an effort to improve the accuracy of the results.
The Scottish Government has asked Google to update its search results on Scotland to include the Scottish passport as one country in the EU, as Google is required to do by law to do so.
The move comes as Scotland prepares to go to the polls on September 18.
The government is keen to ensure that Scotland’s membership of the UK and EU is as secure as possible.
It has called on Google to improve its search and passport results, which it says are “the only reliable source of information” on Scotland.
The new map is not the first time that the Scottish Government is looking to improve Scotland’s passport application process.
The Department of Scotland has also been working on the same issue with the UK’s Information Commissioner.
The department said it has been in contact with Google and other companies to update the search results for the EU member states.
