On 25th April, the third Dual Citizenship Report is being issued by Chetcuti Cauchi Advocates.  Whilst the first 2 editions analysed specific regions, the first global edition assesses the dual citizenship laws of over 100 countries globally.   The report summary is available online, and shows that 60% of the countries allow dual citizenship, whilst only 20% of the countries entirely prohibit dual citizenship.  It also says the practice for naturalisation to result in a withdrawal or loss of citizenship, has been widely discarded by many.  Moreover, there is only a small percentage of states which demand that a choice needs to be made by those born with dual citizenship, i.e. between their 2 citizenships, upon attaining the age of majority.
