A person’s nationality is a large part of their identity, and most people are proud to have the one they are born into and plan to live their entire lives in their home country. While others, although equally proud, would like to experience other countries and diversify for a multitude of reasons. Regardless of which category you fall under, having a dual citizenship has its benefits and can truly improve your standard of living.
One of the most obvious benefits is the ability to travel visa-free or obtain a visa in a much shorter time. Depending on the country you are from, holding a single passport can impose severe limitations on an individual’s ability to travel for business or pleasure. If your passport qualifies for a visa waiver, you can skip the long forms, standing in line at consulates, and waiting for months. You would simply head to the airport and board a plane. That can help when you want to plan exciting holidays for your family or when you need to fly for business meetings.
Political and Economic Instability
It’s hard to find a country who isn’t experiencing political, social or economic unrest these days. A second passport that allows you to travel anywhere or reestablish residency in another (more stable) country can ease your mind and help you sleep better at night knowing that you can whisk your family away to safety at a drop of a hat. That kind of peace of mind is priceless.
Anyone with a child would probably agree that other than health and safety, the next most important priority is education. Every parent wants their child to have the best education to help arm them with the tools to succeed in life. Having a second passport can grant access to some of the top schools in the world. Sometimes while also facilitating financing the education to citizens.
Healthcare differs from country to country. Citizens of a country that provides high standards of healthcare can have a significant impact on the lives of individuals who need medical attention, for them or a member of their family. If you are planning for retirement that is something you need to consider as well.
Having dual citizenship usually causes people to form a strong bond to both of their home countries. So, you don’t have to choose one over the other to call home. It is just a practical decision to increase your options and your sense of security. It is also a way to diversify your assets and possibly build wealth through investments and better business opportunities.
