Dual citizenship is a widely sought quality, given the privileges, rights, and obligations it entails. Dual citizenship can be attained in a few different ways.
Some will have dual citizenship by birth. Individuals born to a mother from a country that allows citizenship to be passed down, and a father from another country that allows citizenship to be passed down, may find themselves to be dual citizens.
This could be possible for an individual born in the United States to an American mother and a British father, for example.
However, these lucky individuals should ensure that they have documents to prove their dual citizenship, to fully enjoy the privileges and rights of citizenship in both places.
Other paths to dual citizenship include the CBI programmes
, offered in countries such as Dominica, St Kitts and Nevis, and Saint Lucia.
European countries such as Malta also offer CBI programmes.
In CBI programmes, from St Kitts and Nevis to Malta, applicants who are interested in accessing the educational, health, economic and cultural opportunities of another country can do so through acquiring a second citizenship from these countries.
As dual citizens, you can keep your native citizenship while also opening yourself to another culture and citizenship if you so choose. This unique opportunity can be useful to people who regard themselves as curious, open, and filled with wanderlust.
It also provides a great option for people seeking political stability amid global turmoil.
If you seek a better quality of life, varied cultural experiences and state-of-the-art health and educational options, dual citizenship may be a good path for you.
