Just moments before parliament rose for a two-week break, the deputy Nationals leader told the Australian Senate she had received preliminary advice from the British Home Office on Monday that she had received dual-citizenship at birth through her Scottish-born father.
Like the dual nationality case of Barnaby Joyce, Senator Nash's case will be referred to the High Court.
Nash revealed she is a United Kingdom citizen by descent because of her Scottish-born father in a short, unheralded statement to the Senate on Thursday evening just before the adjournment.
"On the basis of the Solicitor General's advice, the Prime Minister has indicated to me he sees no reason for me to stand aside from my (portfolios)", she said.
Senator Nash is the Minister for Regional Development and Regional Communications.

The only politicians to resign over their citizenship eligibility are Greens senators Scott Ludlam and Larissa Waters.
Senator Nash is the sixth parliamentarian to be a dual citizen.
The meaning of section 44 (i) has not been read by the High Court as an absolute bar on a candidate being a foreign citizen.
