Second citizenship: easier than it seems

Second citizenship: easier than it seems

17 August 2022

In 2014, when Russia adopted a law on mandatory notification of the authorities about second citizenship, about 900 thousand Russians with two passports were registered. The lion’s share of second citizenship was issued by the United States, Israel and the United Kingdom. On average, by 2016, about 6 million Russians with two passports were known. There is no more recent data in the public domain, but it can be assumed that their number has at least doubled.

It is worth separating the concepts of dual citizenship and second citizenship. In the first case, this is possible only if Russia has concluded a corresponding agreement with another state. It exists only between the Russian Federation and Tajikistan. It turns out that in the absolute majority of cases we are talking about second citizenship. Then in Russia such a holder of two passports is a Russian, in Israel – an Israeli, in the USA – an American.

There are several options for obtaining citizenship of another country. In addition to the fact of birth on its territory, this is kinship with a citizen of the state, marriage or investment. The first two parameters are difficult to adjust on their own, the third is more of a debatable issue, but in the fourth case there is a huge field for activity.
