Dual citizenship – also referred to as multiple citizenship or multiple nationality/dual nationality – is a person’s citizenship status, in which a person is concurrently regarded as a citizen of more than one country. Having dual citizenship offers five key advantages, which we’ve outlined for you below : –
1. TWO PASSPORTS
A dual citizen is allowed to carry passports of both the counties of which he/she is a citizen. This simplifies travel between the two countries, eliminates the need for long-stay visas and guarantees right of entry to both countries.
2. ENJOYING RIGHTS AND PRIVILEGES OF TWO COUNTRIES
A dual citizen is entitled to receive benefits and privileges of both the countries of which he/she is a citizen. They have access to two social security systems, can vote in either country and can run for office in either country (depending on the law of each country).
3. WORKING RIGHTS
A dual citizen is allowed to work in either country of which they are a citizen, without needing a visa or work permit. They can attend school in either country and enjoy local residence tuition fees.
4. OWNERSHIP OF PROPERTY
A dual citizen can own property in one or both countries of which he/she is a citizen. This might be beneficial to those who travel frequently between two countries, since property ownership offers a more economical way to live in two locations.
5. CULTURALLY ENRICHED
A dual citizen always reaps the benefits of being culturally enriched! They learn about the culture, history and ways of life of not one, but two countries.
