Hi, I saw this interesting article at http://www.movehub.com/blog/dual-citizenship-around-the-world-map – please go there for a full version of this article
Dual citizenship policies around the world
We originally researched which countries have strict yes/no policies regarding dual citizenship, but like most other things in the world, it turned out to be more complicated than that. We broke down the following countries that allow dual citizenship into:
- Yes, with restrictions*
- No, with allowances*
Countries that allow dual citizenship
Certain countries, such as the UK and Australia allow dual citizenship under all or most situations. Others, such as Russia, Spain, and Turkey allow dual citizenship, but residents either have to notify the government before and after applying for a second citizenship, can’t run for federal office, or only allow citizenship from certain other countries.
Countries that don’t recognize dual citizenship
Countries that restrict dual citizenship tend to have strict rules that only their citizens can have dual citizenship, but not naturalized foreigners, or only if another country won’t let someone out of their original citizenship – which is Norway’s loophole. Then there are those countries that have a no tolerance policy, such as Austria and Ukraine.
