Can a person be a citizen of two countries.
Is it possible to be a citizen of two countries?
My number two son married a girl from the USA and moved out there. I believe that my two grandaughters have dual USA and British citzenship.
I have an Australian & British passport ! I leave Austalia and return on the Aussie one and do the same in Britain with the British passport .
Absolutely. My girlfriend has citizenship in the US and Canada.
Absolutely it is not only possible but more common than you might think. My Father was born in New Brunswick Canada and my Mother was born in Framingham Massachusetts. Half of my family live in the US and the other half live in Canada and most of us are duel citizens of both countries. In our opinion we were very fortunate indeed. .
I think it depends on the countries. I doubt very much one could be a citizen of both China and Iran, for example. Most of the free or western world would allow it, though.
That said, I was born in England and emigrated to Canada as a littlin'. I'm now a Canadian citizen who holds both passports. So yes, as others have stated, it's possible.
As already answered to your question here, it is possible be a citizen and hold the passport of more than one country. The commitment to the constitutions and the laws of these countries that a citizen must assume, is not something that creates a conflict for most people, however this is not only a technical but a real possibility. In the event of a conflict arising between sovereign nations, protocols that affect a citizens status can come into play that may be far different in one country compared to the other. A citizen who holds dual citizenship in this circumstance may have less rights than if they hold only the one. Internment or forced relocation are both tried and tested contingency plans, so it is lucky that most holders of dual citizenship are from countries at peace with one another.
A lot of Filipinos who lives in America have dual citizenship: they have acquired American citizenship but at the same time retain their Filipino citizenship. So my answer is a definite "YES".
