Can a Person Have More Than One Citizenship?

Holding multiple citizenships:

Whether a person can hold more than one citizenship depends on each country. Some countries, like the United States and Canada, allow dual citizenship, while other such as India and China do not allow this. Under the nationality laws of India, a citizen can lose their Indian nationality if they are naturalised in another nation. Similarly, China does not recognise dual citizenship. However, all Caribbean citizenship by investment countries do allow their citizens to hold multiple citizenships.

The rising age of dual citizenship:

In recent decades, dual citizenship has become increasingly normalised with more countries allowing their citizens to hold multiple nationalities. Many nations have begun recognising the benefits of dual citizenship— especially those that have a large diaspora outside their borders. Dual citizenship can also offer a higher level of safety and security, particularly in times of crises. Whether it’s political instability or social unrest, second citizenship can operate as a useful ‘Plan B’ that enables the holder to make quick decisions to protect their future.
