Italy does not expect you to revoke different citizenships when you pursue this system, or when you become a naturalized native through habitation.

Numerous Kosovars have unique, conspicuous Serbian identifications issued from an extraordinary international ID unit in Belgrade, as Serbia still does not perceive Kosovo as an autonomous state. Because of numerous Kosovars having Serbian citizenship, and even third citizenships in spots they relocated to, (for example, Germany), Kosovo permits dual citizenship. 
Latvia.The Baltic nation as of late changed its laws to enable Latvians to hold another nationality (or mutiple). This is an incredible open door for the individuals who get Latvian residency by beginning a business or putting resources into land, and have the inevitable objective of getting to be Latvian natives. 
Luxembourg. The Luxembourg visa is a magnificent travel archive and, since 2009, the nation has permitted dual citizenship. As of late, the nation diminished the necessities for naturalization, causing a surge of citizenship applications from expats living in the nation. 
Malawi. Malawi's Parliament as of late passed a law permitting dual citizenship, toppling a 53-year old counteracting the training. 
Malta. Malta's $1 million financial citizenship program enables anybody to end up Maltese inside one year without giving up their current citizenships. This goes inseparably with their great view on dual citizenship. 
Mexico. A Mexican during childbirth may secure different nationalities, yet will dependably be viewed as Mexican by the Mexican government. Moreover, all Mexican residents must enter and leave the nation on his or her Mexican international ID. They may likewise be disallowed from sharing in specific speculations inside the nation. 
New Zealand. As indicated by the New Zealand government, Kiwis are qualified for keep up different citizenships without issue. 
Nigeria. Nigerians may have more than one citizenship, regardless of some restricted open weight against the training in the African nation. 
Norway. While Norway offers one of the world's most important travel papers, it for the most part did not enable Norwegian residents to hold another international ID… up to this point. Beginning in 2019, Norwegians will be permitted to hold a moment citizenship, and anybody naturalizing under Norway's generally protracted citizenship laws won't be required to disavow. 
Pakistan. Because of a developing number of Pakistanis living abroad, the administration currently perceives dual citizenship for Pakistani natives under generally conditions. Nonetheless, dual natives are taboo from certain casting a ballot rights, serving in the military, or holding any number of open workplaces, or even government worker occupations. Not an awful exchange off. 
Panama.* Technically, Panama prohibits dual citizenship. By and by, be that as it may, things are somewhat extraordinary. During the naturalization procedure, the Panamanian government will expect you to make a vow that incorporates the renunciation of your past citizenship. In any case, numerous nations (counting the United States) don't perceive this pledge as a major aspect of surrendering your current citizenship. That being stated, second home (and an inevitable second identification) in Panama can be acquired rather effectively by residents of any of 50 "well disposed countries" — in particular most Western nations — making dual citizenship a significant piece of the nation. 
Machu Picchu in Peru where dual citizenship is permitted 
Machu Picchu, Peru: numerous nations in Latin America permit dual citizenship, including Peru. 
Peru. Like numerous other Latin nations, Peru's constitution permits residents of other Latin nations (counting Spain) who have turned out to be naturalized natives to keep up their past nationality. By and by, dual citizenship is permitted by and large. 
Philippines. Acquiring citizenship in the Philippines is almost outlandish for outsiders (in spite of the fact that residency is simple), however Filipinos who get a moment citizenship more often than not don't lose their Filipino visa. On the off chance that they do, in any case, there is a procedure to get it back. 
Portugal. Portugal permits dual citizenship and furthermore offers a simple residency program for those wishing to put resources into Portuguese land. 
Romania. Romania does not drop the citizenships of the individuals who acquire a moment international ID somewhere else, despite the fact that it doesn't guarantee duty regarding different nationalities being lost because of keeping Romanian citizenship. There have been instances of individuals who have lost their numerous nationalities after re-applying for Romanian citizenship. Besides, Romania has a questionable routine with regards to giving dual citizenship to Moldovans. 
Serbia. Situated in Southeast Europe, Serbia offers a standout amongst the least known citizenship by plunge programs. Accordingly, it enables Serbians to keep up different nationalities. 
Slovenia. Slovenia, whose identification likewise gives citizenship in the European Union, may restrict those getting to be naturalized natives from keeping their current nationalities. In any case, it doesn't forbid local Slovenians from having a moment visa much of the time. 
South Africa. Until 1995, South Africa precluded its natives from going on outside international IDs. A 2004 law changed that and wiped out a prerequisite that constrained those looking for dual nationality to apply for authorization. Similarly as with numerous different nations, South Africa requires its nationals to enter and leave the nation with their South African travel reports. It is important that South Africans who wish to get new citizenships going ahead must advise the administration BEFORE doing as such, or else they will lose South African nationality. 
South Korea*. South Korea, while an extraordinary nation, is a somewhat separate culture and long precluded its natives from having another international ID. Be that as it may, starting at 2011, another law permitted the individuals who wound up dual nationals during childbirth to hold the two international IDs in the event that they pronounced their expectation to stay South Korean by age 22. The law does not enable South Koreans to acquire different citizenships as grown-ups. Be that as it may, expats living in South Korea who acquire citizenship — including through the nation's outsider speculator program — can hold their introduction to the world citizenship. 
Spain. Spain requires Spanish nationals to illuminate the administration inside three years in the event that they acquire another nationality. It makes special cases for those people who are characteristic natives of an Iberoamerican nation, Andorra, the Philippines, Equatorial Guinea or Portugal. 
Sweden. In 2001, Sweden deserted a long-held arrangement of disallowed dual nationalities. Presently, Swedish residents may obtain different visas and outsiders applying for naturalization in Sweden may keep their current citizenship. 
Switzerland and dual citizenship 
Over portion of Swiss nationals living outside Switzerland have dual nationality. 
Switzerland. An expected 60% of Swiss residents living abroad are dual nationals, and that is okay as per Switzerland. Starting at 1992, the nation does not preclude having another identification, nor does it power naturalized Swiss natives to surrender their unique nationality. (In spite of the fact that superstars like Tina Turner have gotten Swiss nationality as a way to give up US citizenship.) 
Syria. Syrian citizenship is a confused thing. You get it by being the offspring of a Syrian dad, or a Syrian mother whose accomplice is of stateless or obscure inceptions. What's more, acquiring Syrian citizenship is close incomprehensible: you need to wed a Syrian and live in the nation for a long time. Be that as it may, Syria for the most part enables its natives to have different travel papers, despite the fact that the administration itself prompts that revoking Syrian nationality is so troublesome it's best not to significantly trouble. 
Turkey. Turkey permits different nationalities, however requires those acquiring them to give a heap of records to Turkish authorities during the procedure. In contrast to numerous nations, Turkey does not require dual nationals to utilize their Turkish international ID when entering or leaving the nation.

Nonetheless, British Overseas Territories natives, (for example, residents of Anguilla) may lose their capacity to get a British international ID on the off chance that they acquire another nationality. 
Vanuatu. Since 2012, the Ni-Vanuatu are allowed to hold more than one visa. The principles were changed after Parliament casted a ballot in a move generally suspected to be the forerunner to Vanuatu's future financial citizenship program. 
Does the United States permit dual citizenship? In practically all conditions, yes. You might be required to proclaim "different loyalties" when applying for certain administration programs or a US identification, yet their solicitation is more snooping than everything else. 
You ought to know that taking up an outside citizenship with the "aim" of giving up your US citizenship can make you lose US citizenship. So can battling in a remote military or working for an outside government in any number of occupations.
*Countries with an indicator permit dual citizenship under select conditions as it were. 
Albania. Albania by and large permits dual citizenship, both for local conceived and naturalized residents (counting the individuals who get citizenship through land residency). 
Algeria. While Algeria's citizenship laws are fairly unreasonable to ladies, they do take into account dual citizenship. 
Angola. Regardless of being positioned as the most exceedingly terrible spot on earth to be a tyke, Angola does not force any limitations on dual  citizenship. 
Antigua and Barbuda. Antiguans may hold more than one international ID, which is basically a need seeing that nobody would need to get Antiguan citizenship by venture for a six-figure whole whenever compelled to revoke their current citizenship. 
Argentina. While Argentina requires its natives to utilize their Argentine international IDs to enter the nation, they – like most Latin American nations – don't restrict dual nationality. It's moderately direct to get residency in Argentina and be naturalized inside a couple of years in case you're willing to invest some energy there. In the event that you be naturalized, you won't lose your present citizenship. 
Armenia. I've helped a few people – including my fiancee – acquire Armenian citizenship by plunge, and I can affirm that Armenia enables you to hold some other nationalities no matter what. In case you're a Russian national, you are required to report your citizenship to the Russian government. 
Australia. The Australian government enables its natives to have more than one nationality. I once helped a person who held Australian, yet British, Canadian, and US nationality… no issue. This applies to the individuals who get another nationality consequently, for example, through marriage or through a residency or another application procedure. 
Barbados. Barbados not just enables Barbadian residents to keep up a second nationality, they really urge those living abroad to remember this potential advantage. 
Bangladesh.In case you have the desire to turn into a naturalized resident of this South Asian country, be mindful so as not to be condemned to a long jail term or bring about a criminal fine inside five years of your new citizenship. Doing as such could void your naturalization. Something else, Bangladeshi natives won't lose their citizenship for some other reason, including when acquiring another nationality. 
Belgium. Belgium used to be one of the most effortless and best nations in which to acquire a 
second citizenship. Indeed, it was conceivable to turn into a Belgian native in as fast as three years in the event that you set up ties in the nation and stayed out of trouble clean. While it currently takes five years at an absolute minimum — and upwards of nine — to wind up naturalized in Belgium, the uplifting news it that current Belgian natives are qualified to hold dual citizenship starting at 2008. 
Belize. Belize permits dual citizenship. I have a close companion who holds three nationalities, one of them Belizean through his mom. On the off chance that you have a Belizean parent, getting to be Belizean is fairly direct. 
Benin. The African country of Benin does not confine different nationalities. 
Bolivia. While I wouldn't recommend you fall for the $15,000 Bolivian second international ID trick via web-based networking media, Bolivia pursues the model of most American nations in permitting unhindered numerous citizenships for its subjects. 
Brazil. Brazil is among the most liberal nations in permitting dual citizenship, yet additionally in allowing citizenship to anybody conceived on their dirt. Anybody can look and be Brazilian, and the administration prefers it as such. 
Bulgaria*. Ethnic Bulgarians are qualified for keep up numerous nationalities without surrendering their Bulgarian identification. Those that relinquished citizenship in the past might probably get it back. Be that as it may, those being naturalized as Bulgarians must revoke different nationalities after getting to be natives.

Because of its vicinity to The Land of the Free, a few Canadians were really conceived in the United States and don't have a clue about that they hold a second nationality as "unintentional Americans". Canada appears to urge its natives to use their status of dual nationality, and positively permits it. They do recommend you enter the nation of your second citizenship utilizing your Canadian international ID, however, which may not be permitted under the second nation's principles. 
Chile. In spite of what other individuals may let you know, Chile permits dual nationality. 
Costa Rica. Costa Rica is one of the Americas' hardest nations in which to end up naturalized, yet all Costa Rican natives may keep up different nationalities without issue.

Croatia*. Ethnic Croatians who acquired citizenship by birth or by plunge from in any event one parent may keep up different nationalities. Notwithstanding, the individuals who become naturalized Croatians must revoke every other citizenship, or be set up to do as such before accepting Croatian citizenship. 
Cyprus.Considering that Cyprus showcases its own (costly) financial citizenship program, it just bodes well that Cyprus enables you to keep up extra citizenships. 
Czech Republic. Patriots in the Czech Republic attempted to maintain a long-standing custom of disallowing residents from having different loyalties. Notwithstanding, starting at 2014, the Czech Republic takes into account different nationalities. It is a piece of their push to further adjust themselves to the strategies of the EU. Previous Czech nationals who lost their citizenship can apply for reestablishment. 
Denmark. For a considerable length of time, Denmark has confined its residents to be Danish… or be something different. Notwithstanding, as of September 1, 2015 Denmark permits dual citizenship. 
Egypt. Egyptian residents may acquire various nationalities; be that as it may, they should tell the "best possible" Egyptian experts first. There is no such thing as private second citizenship without imperiling Egyptian citizenship. Residents should likewise advise the legislature regarding their goal to keep Egyptian citizenship inside one year of getting the outside citizenship. Egyptian dual nationals are excluded from military administration, precluded from taking a crack at military and police institutes, or from being chosen to Egyptian Parliament. Sounds like a decent arrangement to me. 
Finland. Starting at 2003, Finnish natives are qualified for hold dual citizenships.

Generally, those with remote conceived guardians needed to pick between their folks' nationality and German nationality once they turned into a grown-up. The 2014 law changed that. 
Greece.Greek residents are permitted to keep up dual citizenships except if they solicitation to deny Greek citizenship. Renunciation of Greek citizenship is liable to fulfillment of any military administration necessity. It's conceivable to acquire second residency in Greece and work toward citizenship, yet the administration won't be your ally. 
Hungary.Hungary offered a long-running and now-shut monetary residency program that enabled affluent Chinese to get Hungarian citizenship. The nation permits citizenship by plunge and allows its residents to keep up numerous nationalities.
