Back to the topic at hand: What is the easiest way to get a second passport?
There are several ways to get a second passport/dual citizenship including, spending an extended period time in a country with a temporary visa, invest in your country of choice, through marriage, adopting a child or even changing your religion (If you want to join the Jewish faith and move to Israel).
And while these are all viable options, there is no simpler way to sail through the process than by utilizing your own ancestry.
That’s right! And we can’t think of a cooler way or reason to claim dual citizenship. Maybe your parents or grandparents immigrated here from Wales, and you would love to live there and learn more about your roots. If so, you can very easily apply for and obtain dual citizenship, and in many cases for free. There are also some instances where, even if you have great-grandparents who lived in your country of choice, you will be able to go through the same process to obtain a second passport.
Keep in mind, however, that you will need to have your birth certificate, marriage and/or divorce certificate (if applicable) and passport, as well as the birth certificates of any children you have. You’ll also be required to provide copies of birth certificates (and death certificates) for those on both your maternal and paternal lines, going all the way back to the ancestor you are wanting to trace your country ties to. You’ll also need any naturalization certificates those ancestors acquired that declare their nationality.
And with many ways online to trace your ancestry through sites such as ancestry.com, you can easily find family members, where they lived and even obtain legal verification. And when you do, you are one giant step closer to finding another home in a country that you can extend your roots into for many, many years and generations to come.
