Dual Nationality

Forgive me if this was asked before, but did a quick search and can't find anything.

Is having dual nationality (and hence 2 passports) a good/bad/indifferent thing for travelling? Would you if you could, or does it just make things more complex?

Cheers,

Neil

Good for
visas -

Some nationalities don't need them where others do, and some times the costs are different too.

You can apply for two at once - one passport at one consulate while the other is at a different consulate...



Bad for ?
Cost ..
Something else to loose/report.

Thumbs up

The other advantage: if you get into any sort of trouble you have more people to turn to.

I had a good few occasions to switch passports on my travels - take as many passports as yo can.

Scroll to the bottom of this page as it is displayed and you will find other threads that are about the same subject - it has come up quite regularly in recent past: maybe more people are becoming aware of the issue?

Thanks for the responses guys. I see the other posts now - should learn how to use the search more effectively I guess

Seems to be mixed responses on this one. I'm thinking I will apply for 2 and only use one of them primarily unless I get stuck waiting on visa application or main one gets lost etc.
