In this Frequently Asked Questions video series, we answer common questions on the investor immigration industry to provide all you need to know about citizenship by investment and residence by investment programmes.
Whether a person can hold more than one citizenship depends on each country. Some countries, like the United States and Canada, allow their citizens to, while some countries do not allow this, for example India and China. Under Indian Nationality Law, a citizen can lose their Indian nationality if 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 citizenship.
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 its borders. A dual citizenship can also offer the holder a level of safety and security particularly in times of crisis. Whether its political instability or social unrest, a second passport can operate as a useful Plan B that enables the holder to make quick decisions to protect their future.
