Dual citizenship is the result of the interaction of the laws of two countries. Individuals can become dual citizens automatically (normally by birth or marriage), or after successfully applying for the citizenship of another country.

When it comes to dual or multiple citizenship, the world is divided: there are countries whose laws allow their citizens to acquire the citizenship of another state without losing their present one. In contrast, other countries do not allow the acquisition or holding of another citizenship, and the acquisition of another citizenship may lead to the loss of the present citizenship.

Therefore, the acquisition of an additional citizenship is only legally possible for citizens of those countries that allow dual or multiple citizenship.
