What is dual-nationality? Why do we need it?
For Vietnamese residing abroad, the issue of nationality is very important. The majority of the Vietnamese community living abroad wants the Vietnamese State to recognize the status of dual or multiple nationality, that is, having both Vietnamese nationality and foreign nationality, especially the nationality of another country. developed like the US. That’s why when the draft Law on Vietnamese Nationality (amended) was passed on November 13, 2008, it brought joy to many Vietnamese residing abroad because of their dual citizenship.
First, the benefit of dual citizenship is to enjoy all the privileges, economic, political, and social welfare benefits of both countries of which they are citizens. Specifically, they will be able to live, work, study, receive health care, name and own a company, own and buy real estate, sponsor relatives, and be eligible to stand for election. .
In addition to the above-mentioned significant benefits of dual nationals, they must also meet the requirements of the countries of their nationality such as filing taxes, paying taxes, performing military service, complying with law or regulation. This also causes some confusion for them.
For example, in Vietnam, there is no strict regulation on the age of use, sale and purchase of tobacco and alcoholic substances such as beer and spirits. But if you have another nationality like the US, when going to public places in the US, the age to drink alcohol and smoke is 21 years or older. And the security of the bars will check your age based on your ID/passport or driver’s license. Or if in European countries, you are not allowed to smoke in places where there is a sign that says “no smoking or no smoking”, otherwise you will be administratively fined.
