There are several ways to obtain a second citizenship. Most of them cost big bucks, however, for some there is a less expensive route. If you happen to come from a particular country’s bloodline, you may be in luck.
There are certain nations throughout the world that observe what’s known as ‘jus sanguinis’, or right of blood. This means that a person’s citizenship is determined by lineage instead of birthplace. There are some countries that even extend the right of citizenship to grandchildren of nationals. This means that if you have a grandparent from one of the countries listed below, you may be entitled to citizenship too.
Countried that observe ’jus sanguinis’ include:
1) Poland. If you have Polish ancestors, you may be eligible to obtain a Polish passport.
2) Italy. Italy also recognizes citizenship to descendants of Italian nationals that go back two generations.
3) Ireland. Ireland also confers citizenship to descendants of Irish nationals.
4) India. Indian ancestors can go back as far as three generations.
