Home FAQs Second Passports and Citizenships Is it legal?
Is it legal?

Yes, provided you do it right. But before you try it at home, get specialist advice!

Obviously there are many illegal ways to obtain second passports, like forgeries, identity theft or the old Day of the Jackal method revealed in the thriller of the same name. These are most emphatically not recommended, though we do cover them in the books because forewarned is forearmed.

In most civilized countries (all western countries) dual nationality is permitted. It is a basic human right in our globalized world, a very common situation. Almost every baby born of parents of different nationalities is automatically a dual citizen at birth. There is nothing illegal or unusual about it provided you take a few basic steps.

Of course, if you are Cuban or North Korean, you may find that obtaining a second citizenship is illegal however you do it. All the more reason to ditch your original citizenship, then!
