A person with dual citizenship is a citizen of two countries at the same time, which has both advantages and disadvantages because it is a complex legal status. Dual citizens enjoy certain benefits, such as the ability to live and work freely in two countries, own property in both countries, and travel between the countries with relative ease. Being a citizen of two countries allows you more mobility - embracing our global world and all its opportunities.
In this episode of The New Nomad, Samantha North (owner of Digital Émigré) joins our hosts Andrew Jernigan and Allen Koski as they take their audience to the complicated world of passports and visas and everything in between. They regaled their audience with stories about their experiences and shared tips on how to make the legalities of travel easier, especially after Brexit. If you are planning to go to a foreign country and maybe stay there for an extended period, tune in to this week’s episode. Surely, the golden nuggets peppered throughout the show would be a huge help.

Samantha North, originally from the UK, has lived and worked abroad for over 10 years. In 2013 she started her freelancing career while working for a remote destination company. Even though she started out as a journalist, she decided then to focus more on web development. Both the pandemic and recent political changes (Brexit) in her passport country (UK), inspired her to launch a service, Digital Émigré, to help remote workers and freelancers emigrate to the EU and gain citizenship. Her past freelance experiences in web development, digital marketing, and journalism have been invaluable in this new venture.
