#travel #passport

When you have dual citizenship, travelling with two passports can be perplexing. So, you are required to understand how to travel with them. In this article, we'll answer the queries surrounding it.

Is Travelling with Two Passports Illegal?

Travelling with two passports is not illegal. So, you can travel having both of them with you.

Infact, having both passports may provide you with certain benefits. Such as, one of the passports may enable the holder to enter certain countries without a visa. 


Are Dual Citizens Required to Travel with Both Passports?

You do not necessarily require to travel with two passports. But the fact is that it's going to benefit you if you carry them both. For example, if you get stuck in explaining you are a dual citizen, then both your passports can save your day by serving as proof of citizenship

Other perks may be that the additional passport might facilitate the return trip, for instance, if there is a distinct line at border control for citizens returning home. Or, you may be able to obtain an eVisa rather than an embassy visa, which would expedite the process of getting entry clearance.

Otherwise, you might be required to show both at times as some countries ask for them. For example, if you return to the United States, you will be asked to show your US passport. Thus, we suggest you keep the two with you as every journey is different. 


Can You Enter a Country With One Passport and Exit With Another?

Always use the same passport for entering and exiting the country. Here, it's necessary to understand that countries measure the duration of your stay in the nation by the passport you have used to enter. So, if you have entered that land using one passport and exited using another, it will be recorded in a file as you have never left. 

Still, it depends on your visiting country and whether it stamps a passport. Some countries don't stamp passports, so in such a case, there is no issue with which one you show while entering or exiting the country. But it's better to use the one you initially showed while entering. 


Final Words

Travelling with two passports can be beneficial. However, you must be aware of immigration-related rules before travelling. To learn about the requirements of the country you are visiting, always search about it online. The finest course of action will be to find and contact a visa consultant if you still find yourself perplexed.
