Expat Information: Settlement and Citizenship for Expats

The ability to permanently settle, or seek to gain citizenship, in a new country is affected by a many factors. First and foremost, each country has its own naturalisation laws, with some, such as Mexico, requiring the renunciation of all other citizenships as a condition of naturalisation. Having pre-existing ties to a country (family members of that nationality, being born there, etc...) can facilitate the process, otherwise, a period of residence is usually required in order to be able to apply for full citizenship.
