By birth, I am a Bangladeshi citizen and have a valid passport. I also have Italian citizenship and thus also carry an Italian passport. I have been living in the UK for a certain time, and I want to be a British citizen as well. How many valid passports can I carry at a time? There is already a question on how many citizenship one can hold.

    There does not seem to be any blanket rule limiting the number of citizenships. You do need to check each one's rules. For example, does a Bangladesh dual nationality certificate permit multiple other citizenships, or only one? Or can you have multiple certificates. – Patricia Shanahan Aug 21 '16 at 17:36
  • Note that there is a difference between passports and citizenship! It is possible, by the internal laws of several countries of the world, to hold a passport of that country and NOT be a citizen. Further, while countries may have their own restrictions regarding their own citizens also being citizens of other countries, those restrictions may not apply to other designations that may qualify for a foreign passport (such as 'national', royal subject, honorary, etc...). – ouflak Aug 22 '16 at 13:07
  • There are two questions here. The answer to the 'passports' questions is different from the answer to the 'citizenship' question. And the OP is been quite specific in the difference. – ouflak Aug 22 '16 at 13:12

  • For someone who travels a lot, it's moderately easy to get a 2nd UK passport (eg so you can send one off for a visa while still travelling). I believe some other countries also do the same. Would you count Italian + UK + 2nd UK passport as being 2 or 3? – Gagravarr Aug 22 '16 at 14:06
