Before the 1920′s, most people didn’t travel more than 10 miles from their homes. For the people who did travel, there were no restrictions or documents that would prevent people from traveling the globe.
Once the League of Nations was formed, they got involved into international travel and began work to standardize an internationally recognized travel document that became our passport that we know today.
Officials used to ask people for their “papers.” Today, border patrol ask for passports.
Nowadays, most people around the world become a citizen of the country in which they are born. Most people end up staying in their country of birth.
Generally, people keep that citizenship and do not seek citizenship to another country. This means that they only require one passport to travel from country to country. There are some who feel that it is beneficial to have multiple citizenship.
Multiple passports can open up more options for travelers and create freedom to travel. Most foreign banks don’t do business with US passport holders, but may do business with those who hold dual citizenship in the US and in that particular country.
A second passport can offer you more possibilities than you know.
