Some people are born lucky enough to automatically have dual citizenship. This usually happens by having a parent who is from another country or by being born in a foreign country to a U.S. parent. If you were born in the U.S., have parents who were both born in the States, but have ex-pat wishes, getting dual citizenship is a different story. While some countries make gaining citizenship simple, you may have to do something in return. Dual citizenship may offer you more traveling options and, in some cases, tax benefits.
