Hi there,

I have dual nationality with Australia/Lithuanian passports. I was wondering if you are allowed to travel on two passports? I am wanting to travel to NZ/South America/Europe. It is easier for me to travel on my Australian passport to NZ/STH America and easier for me in Europe on my Lithuanian as they are part of the EU.

Has anyone travelled on two passports or know where i can find out information?

I have looked everywhere and am receiving different information all the time...

Thank you :)

Yes you can

humm, NO you can't!

I have 3 passports, and I've always been told that while traveling you have to leave AND enter the country with the same passport... Unless you don't want Authorities to be able to know where you are/where you have been...

(When I go to Europe from North-America, though, I cross the ocean with my Canadian passport, but I use my French citizenship card to travel within Europe... Which is legaly fine).

Unless i've got the question wrong, the question was:
Can you travel on two passports? i.e. use one for nz/sth america and the other for Europe
the answer to this is Yes!!!,

I agree you are supposed to enter and exit a country with the same passport, (although i went into aus with a NZ passport and my UK passport on leaving).

Theoricaly you are supposed to enter and exit a country with the same passport, but in practice you do whatever you chose to do! eh!

Thanks guys.
So just to clarify.
I can leave Australia on my Australian passport to NZ/STH America, and from there enter Europe on my Lithuanian passport. And arrive back in Australia on my Australian passport..?

Hi Question of my own- I have a UK paspport where i was born along with my mother. However my father is spanish and all my dads family still live there. Can i get dual nationality? and would it be worth it? I very much am proud of my spanish heritage and want to embrace it.I am planning to go and live in Spain next year. I also want to at some point travel to south america which passport would it be better to travel on.

ktmaria,

you either have dual nationality already or you don't. Meaning that in your case you don't acquire it. Getting a Spanish passport would just prove a fact that is already there. Contact the Spanish embassy and ask them weither you might hold Spanish citizenship. If you do, they should issue you a Spanish passport.
