Webinar: Are You a Citizen of Another Country? The Secrets of Citizenship by Ancestry

Mar 30, 2023

A presentation of the ABA International Law Section’s Immigration and Naturalization Committee.

The participation to this event is FREE, but registration is required.



Many countries have legislation that governs derivative and ancestry citizenship. Some countries are more liberal in recognizing derivative citizenship, while others limit how many generations can benefit from it. With many countries in turmoil in the developing world, citizenship by descent has become a very popular alternative to move abroad or gain visa-free access, work privileges, and residency in developed economies. A panel of experts in the citizenship and immigration laws of several countries will discuss the rules that apply and processes to follow to determine qualification for citizenship by descent.
