Dual citizens are citizens of more than one country. The Dual citizenship is widely accepted by many 80% of countries in the World in America, Europe while in Asia and Africa it is less tolerant.

Dual nationality laws vary by country are quite complicated in terms of birth, marriage, naturalization and for children. The level of restriction depends on country’s nationality laws and enforcement (eg. marriage, naturalisation, children etc..)  Some countries prohibit dual citizenship holders from serving in their militaries or on police forces or holding certain public offices. It is worth noting that some countries such as Russia, South Africa require prior permission before becoming a dual citizen. China, India, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Malaysia, Japan, Singapore, UAE etc. are hostile towards dual citizenship.

Dual nationals can travel with two passports, although this is common trend. For example US dual citizens are required to use US passports when crossing borders.
