Every so often, this age-old issue about Dual Citizenship despite various utterances by different politicians over the years comes to the fore.
It is an issue that has been of concern to many people. It would be in everyone’s best interests to put to bed this issue once and for all.
The Government and the Courts need to find a solution that may resolve the issue faced by many who have obtained Portuguese and other nationalities find themselves in, many through birth and for historical reasons.
It would be prudent for the Central Government to allow people dual nationality or citizenship as they can have a foreign nationality and still maintain close links with the motherland.
According to the World Population Review, 49% of all countries worldwide allow dual citizenship which means that a person can be a citizen of more than one country. We are living in an age where the world is a global village just like no man is an island.
