You can have two citizenships or more. It is a neither strange, illegal, nor new issue that an individual has second or even multiple nationalities. But how can you have a second citizenship and passport?
There are some countries where dual citizenship is prohibited.
The following countries do not let all that the citizens hold the passports of other countries: Afghanistan, Andorra, Austria, Azerbaijan, Bahrain, China, Djibouti, El Salvador, Estonia, Georgia, India, Indonesia, Japan, Kazakhstan, Lithuania, Malaysia, Montenegro, Netherlands, Nepal, Poland, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, Slovakia, Tanzania, Thailand, Ukraine, United Arab Emirates, and Venezuela.

There are several ways to become a naturalised person in another country. If one of your parents is a citizen of another country, then usually you can get both passports. However, the most common way is to become a resident of a country through freedom of movement, employment, study, entrepreneurship, investment, military service or as a refugee. After becoming a resident, it is usually a straightforward process to become a permanent resident and later a citizen.
