How Does Citizenship By Descent Work?

French Citizenship by Ancestry
Citizenship by descent, also known as citizenship by ancestry, allows you to claim a second citizenship based on familial connections to your ancestral homeland.

Perhaps your family immigrated from Europe or maybe you have a deep connection to a foreign country that you’re not even aware of.

As the rules vary from country to country, you may be able to go back multiple generations to claim your citizenship.

Who knows what inspiring surprises are waiting to be discovered while tracing your family tree?

Without knowing it, you could already be eligible for second citizenship, but finding that out takes time. So let us do the legwork for you.

Do you think you qualify?


Nomad Capitalist is a great bespoke firm to help individuals “go where you’ll be treated best.” From banking, to residency, citizenships and more.

Case Studies

All of us are searching for a sense of connection, someplace to belong. Join the growing number of clients and our employees who found their ancestral home while gaining access to new opportunities and lower taxes.

My great-grandfather moved to the US from Italy in 1915. We only had his death certificate and citizenship certificate, but no other documents. The team at Nomad Capitalist helped track all the relevant documents spanning multiple generations, eventually locating my great-grandfather’s Italian birth certificate, dating back to 1875. Tracking down all those documents took a lot of research and time, but it sure was a fascinating experience and worth it in the long term.


My grandfather was Czech and naturalized in 1977. When we started our research we had very little to go on but the Nomad Capitalist team helped us to track down additional documents in the relevant Czech archives.


Both my great grandparents are Italian. My great grandfather moved to the US in 1903 and my great grandmother in 1911. With only my grandfather’s death certificate to go on, the Nomad Capitalist team helped me obtain various supporting documents, including birth, marriage and death certificates from both the US and Italy, creating a much clearer ancestral picture.


My great grandmother was born in Lithuania in the 1920s and emigrated to the US in the 30s. We had her naturalization documents and immigration papers, but the Nomad Capitalist team was able to track down her birth and marriage records from the Lithuanian archives.


My mother and my grandparents were born in Italy. My mother is not an Italian citizen anymore. Because of having Italian descent, I wanted to regain the citizenship through my grandparents, for this reason, I contacted Nomad Capitalist. The Nomad Team helped me track birth, marriage and citizenship certificates for my ancestors. The process of obtaining those documents took some time, currently we have everything on hand and just need a visit to the consulate to start the citizenship process. Citizenship will be granted to my wife and after me, through citizenship by marriage.


As an American, being able to obtain my second citizenship through descent has opened a world of opportunities for me. Not only did I not have to apply for a student visa when I studied in Europe, but it allowed me to continue my life and career in multiple countries without any additional time or effort. It has also allowed me to better connect with my own heritage and better understand where I come from.

The Process

Your Journey Begins

Ready to discover your heritage? Take a few minutes to fill out our form, and feel free to add as much detail as possible, anything which can help us to gain a deep understanding of your ancestry and what you wish to achieve by obtaining a second citizenship.

Assessment Call

Once your application is reviewed, we will schedule your one-to-one free Assessment Call to discuss everything in more detail. If you have new information to share or any questions you would like to ask, we can go through these with you, and once we have a clearer understanding of what you wish to achieve with our Citizenship By Descent Plan, we can begin your homecoming journey in earnest.

Your Citizenship Application

This is the fun part – like unraveling a mystery. As we research your genealogy, digging deep into your family tree, we’ll keep you fully updated on all the interesting new facts we find.

It’s a three-step process:

1. Research: We start by tracing the journey your ancestors took from the country of their birth to their eventual arrival on new shores.

2. Document collection: once we have traced those steps we then begin collating all the necessary documents to demonstrate your eligibility.

3. Application: Now you can relax. Once we have compiled all the relevant paperwork we’ll begin the application process, working with immigration officials to help expedite your claim.

The timeline varies based on the country of application and individual circumstances.

Ongoing Support

Of course, we understand that getting your new citizenship isn’t the end of your journey but only the beginning, so once again, our team is here to help you on your way. In addition to providing support with additional paperwork, we advise on a wide range of matters, from taxes to banking, real estate, and investments to company formation. Our special Concierge service is also on hand to help get you and your loved ones get fully settled in as you begin your new life in your ancestral home.

Discover Your Ancestry – And Gain The Benefits Of Second Citizenship

How to get Armenian citizenship by descent
If you want to start a new life overseas or obtain a second passport, citizenship by descent is the obvious first step.

Maybe you’ve hit the citizenship jackpot and not even realized it. Or you may have a specific country in mind. Either way, our team of experts will help you determine the best approach to guarantee an optimal outcome.

You may even discover you are eligible for multiple citizenships, though doing the research on your own can be time-consuming and may lead you down the wrong path.

So, save yourself time and hassle and bypass the bureaucracy. Let our team prepare all the paperwork to make the process as streamlined and friction-free as possible.

Be advised that there is always a degree of uncertainty involved in proving lineage because the immigration authorities ultimately reserve the right to refuse your application. This may happen, for example, if they cannot find sufficient evidence to support your relationship with your ancestor, or if they find that your ancestor had voluntarily renounced or lost their citizenship before you were born. So, although we cannot guarantee a 100% successful outcome in all cases, with our team of experts on the case, we can guarantee that you will get the best possible for your specific circumstances.

We’ll be there with you for every step of your journey as you discover new aspects of your identity and take your first steps into a new life and home with greater liberation and a whole new world of possibilities.
