Every person has the right to be legally recognized nationality. However, some people have more than one. This circumstance is labeled in two ways: dual nationality or multiple nationality.
Each country has its own laws about having more than one home nation . Dual citizenship involves some administrative procedures in the civil registry and, once obtained, is associated with a series of advantages.
As a general rule dual citizenship is recognized throughout the world, but some countries do not recognize this right, therefore, a person cannot be governed by their different laws. In any case, for an individual to have citizenship of two different countries, both countries must have a bilateral agreement on the issue of nationality.
It should be noted that there is also the possibility of having more than two nationalities (for example, a person resident in Spain since childhood and already has an Italian-Uruguayan partner). Dual Nationality
Nationality and dual Mexican nationality
A person is of Mexican nationality when they are born in the territory of Mexico, regardless of their parents’ nationality. A Mexican is also a person who was born in a foreign territory, but one or both of his parents are Mexican. In a third case, a foreign-born Mexican is only considered if the parents are Mexican by naturalization. If a person is born on a Mexican warship, he also has Mexican nationality. Dual Nationality
A Mexican has dual citizenship when he acquires the nationality of another country without giving up his origin. This recognition has been in existence since 1998 and is applied to children of Mexicans born in a foreign country or those who are born in Mexican territory and one of the parents or both are of another nationality.
In most cases, the decision to have Mexican nationality and that of another country is based on cultural, family or work issues. The most common multiple nationality in Mexico is Mexican-American, as both countries maintain close ties. Dual Nationality
People of Sephardic origin have the right to Spanish nationality
In 1492 Spanish Jews were expelled from their own country. These people are known as Sephardim and their culture has continued for centuries. In fact, many of them retain 15th-century Spanish, known as Ladino and the Sephardic language.
Currently, anyone who can demonstrate that they are descendants of a family that was expelled from Spain can apply for Spanish nationality, even if they do not belong to the Jewish religion. Therefore, a Venezuelan of Sephardic origin could apply for Spanish nationality.
