in this country a child can have dual citizenship if certain conditions are met, but by the time he reaches 18 (I think it is) he must make a choice for which country he wishes to be a citizen of. I think this is a better way than dual status.

hello, it all depends on the country and the benefit you can get by having a dual citizenship. some countries will not allow you to do this (i think there are very few who will allow you to have dual) and you have to pick the one that suits you best. i honestly dont know a country yet that will allow you to have two citizenship. you can be a permanent resident there but you cannot get a citizenship unless otherwise you will give up your own. anyway, i am not sure if it is more of allegiance coz some will question your honesty and devotion so i am not sure. i feel it is more of just taking advantage of what you can get from the country. for example you are american or european - some countries will allow you to come there (a different country) without getting a visa, or you can do business there with some tax exemptions and some other things. anyway, it will be great if you can get dual citizenship coz you can enjoy 2 different privileges without worrying of breaking a law. i wish i can have such thing but i will need to be either rich or well known to do so. takecare!

I think it is a wonderful idea, I do not see why a person should have to lose their citizenship for the country they were born into just because they move to another country.

I don't think its a bad idea. You can travel freely in more than one country. I don't see any problems with it.

I dont know. I have known of some intertainers who were born in another country and have become citizens of the USA. They are usually happy to become citizens here and since the US doesn't require that the naturalize citizen give up citizenship of another country, I guess it does not matter. But it does bring into question the oath of citizenship they take cause one thing on it is defend this country. So how would they feel if their home country and the US became enemies?
