Why and How to Get a Second Passport
By Joe Jarvis - July 13, 2017

If you don’t have options, you are helpless.

If you had only McDonalds to provide you food, you would not be able to make the choice to be healthy. If Monsanto monopolized the agricultural industry (which they are arguably attempting) then you could not help but consume dangerous carcinogenic pesticides.

And if the U.S. government controls your ability to travel around the globe, you have no choice in mobility. If the government cancels your passport, then you are done. You have no options for traveling outside of the United States.

But McDonald’s is not your only food choice, Monsanto thankfully does not control all agriculture, and the U.S. government is not the only choice for obtaining a passport. Sovereign Man has highlighted four options for obtaining a second passport.

This isn’t to say that the sky is falling; hopefully, you will never need a second passport. Hopefully, the U.S. government never targets you willfully or through an error.

And hopefully, you never have a house fire or a home invasion, but you should still have fire detectors and a gun.

A smart person will prepare for a hundred different situations that may never happen, feeling confident that they have a plan b if something does go wrong.

And there is plenty of precedent of passports being canceled for no legitimate reason, or due to a clerical error. A passport is one of those things governments consider a privilege, and no proof or due process is needed to take that away.

The best way to get a second passport depends entirely on your situation. Do you have extra money? You can basically buy one. Many countries offer citizenship through investment.

Do you have time to wait? This is another option. Some countries like Panama don’t even make you wait long under certain conditions, and you do not even have to own a residence there!

What does your family tree look like? Some countries like Italy grant citizenship based on ancestry. This should be the first method you look into if you have parents, grandparents, or even great-grandparents from a foreign nation.

Are you a “flexible” person? Not in the yoga sense. Are you okay with being a bit creative and out of the ordinary in your pursuit for a second passport? Sometimes marriage, adoption, having a baby, or changing your religion can get you a second passport.

Options translate to freedom. If you cannot negotiate, if you cannot walk away from an interaction, or choose a better alternative, you are not free.

Getting a second passport is not about fear, or running away, it is the same as carrying home owner’s insurance, or diversifying your portfolio.

Ultimately it ensures that no matter what happens in the world, you always have a place to go.

The investment of getting a second passport will not just benefit you, but entire generations to come. There aren’t a whole lot of investments that pay that kind of dividend.

To get started, I encourage you to explore the ancestry option first, as it is oftentimes the quickest and most cost effective option.

If you are not part of the lucky bloodline club, I would suggest you strongly consider the residency (time) option.

Even if you don’t physically make the move, just having a foreign residency or second passport as part of your Plan B can make all the difference. It’s a crucial insurance policy.

    A word to the wise.
    A few years ago I obtained a second passport in a latin american country via ancestry. It wasn’t too terribly difficult, certainly not as hard as getting straight answers out of the medical insurance industry in the ussa or, gasp, dealing with the social insecurity administration. However, I will share a problem that I have encountered and am seeking the solution for.
    In the ussa, we typically use one last name, in latin countries they use two. Particularly since I was proving up through ancestry I had to use two last names. I did and did not think anything of it….until.
    I found it hard to get some definitive answers on how to actually use the 2nd document and did not have the opportunity to travel to my 2nd country until this past June. To make a long story less long, the best advice that I found was to have the airline show both versions of my name on the tickets, 1 last name and 2 last names. Well, they would not do so. It would not have been a problem to simply travel on my 2nd passport except that I would need a visa to return to the ussa which is a hassle that I was not prepared for. The bottom line is that I need to get one of the documents changed so that they are identical. I made some inquiries there but it does not look good. Now i will see if I can get it done here but don’t hold out a lot of hope. The only option that I retain to use the 2nd passport is to travel on one way tickets which, if the need to relocate occurs, wont be a hindrance.
    Hopefully this note will save someone else the problem.

      I believe US citizens with passport must use it to come/go. That is why I didn’t get a 2nd one + I have crossed into Mexico/returned without showing anything.

      I know that all exits may be stopped. If it gets that bad, I don’t think it will be safe to even be on the roads until things calm down.

      If I have to “make a run for the border” I will need to go by “my” car.

      Recently, J.B. interviewed two who drove across with no papers at all, in someone else’s truck. They are thriving, so far. That gives me hope.

      Of course, I would rather relocate to N.Z. but Belize or Jeff’s neighborhood will do.

      • Yes, and it is also about being able to travel if you are already abroad when your passport is cancelled, like Edward Snowden. His life would have been easier with a second passport.

        • georgesilver

          Just how many normal “non whistle-blower” people have had their passports cancelled when abroad?
          Note to myself:_ must get another passport in the event that the UK government cancels my passport for making a comment on the Daily Bell. LOL.

          • Milton

            new facial recognition software makes it hard to cross a boarder with 2nd passport unless they are allowed. All new Canadian and US FRS will pick up the US of Canadian image first. So if a US Or Can tries to enter with say a NZ passport the FR will show that you are still US.

          • Patrick Perry

            If you are on the ‘no fly’ list it won’t really matter how many passports you have, you’re not getting out. If however you happen to find your way out of the country you may have the ability to travel and function with a document from another tax farm.

          • Patrick Perry

            In today’s ussa your assets can be frozen and passport revoked without formal charges being proffered, based on a suspicion of having thoughts sympathetic to the persona non grata of the day. With no formal charges and no money to fight back your chances of regaining any of your assets are nil. By the way, the suspicion can originate from the proverbial anonymous tip. Have you pissed anyone off lately?

          • georgesilver

            Many people… but then again I’m not important because no matter what I say it doesn’t affect anyone in power.
            Many people (like yourself) are being schooled into becoming wracked with paranoia and fear. You are obviously way down the slippery slope of becoming controlled by fear.

          • Patrick Perry

            I wouldn’t say afraid, prudent perhaps. But you missed the point my friend, it’s not about your ability to affect anyone in power but rather to have the sheep police themselves. In every authoritarian society there are those that are all too willing to do the bidding of the power structure for any number of reasons. In every public facility here there are signs that read ‘see something, say something’. Piss someone off and they report you as a possible terror…fill in the blank..and you are caught in the web with no means to escape.

          • Arrow

            A very thin line between prudence and fear. It would appear that there is a fear of getting reported (for whatever reason) to some alleged authority that could pull your plug. Why would one choose to live under that kind if uncertainty? Slavery could easily be used in place of uncertainty. Fear fits in to either consideration. No?

          • Patrick Perry

            Alleged authority, wow, I don’t know where you live but here in chicago even the library has a swat team. We are indeed enslaved, be it tax slaves, debt slaves or fear slaves. It is impossible to tell weather the panopticon effect that the power structure cultivates is actually an electronic reality or propaganda. One doesn’t choose to live in this situation but rather is born into it mostly. If one recognizes the enslavement by seeing through the multiple layers of propaganda one then has a choice, of sorts. My choice is to construct an exit strategy that will ensure the greatest degree of freedom for my grandchildren’s grandchildren.

          • Arrow

            Swat team? lol. That’s so they can steal with impunity… armed as if they were going to battle, no less. I feel for you brother. The last time I was in Chicongo was the only time I have been there. The state is not long for this world in its current form. It appears to be a race as to which state will go belly-up first. Bought votes through unfunded promises and it’s coming back to bite ’em in the ass. As for my location currently, it’s off the beaten path. After being in Denver 15 years I woke up and determined that when the walls come tumbling down, I do not want to be near a densely populated area. Now I’m in redneck country, where I know more than the DA. Good luck to you. Ever considered a Trust? I would recommend looking into it. Cheers.

          • Patrick Perry

            Ah, I do love Colorado, good luck to you too. I was still somewhat naive in 2007 and thought that the house of cards would collapse in weeks, little did I know how long they could keep the charade afloat. At this point I still feel as though it’s around the corner but realize that we probably won’t know until we can see the flames. Redneck country was an option to consider but I fell in love with central america so have set my sights on that area for the next few generations. Of more recent consideration regarding that choice is learning of the potential for a long term cold spell, mini ice age if you will. Studying the math and the history as well as current trends I think that at the very least we will see a good deal more severe weather, generally colder and most assuredly more volatile than the last 150 years. Could it tip over into a period like the Dalton Minimum, absolutely. Will it, who knows. So being in the tropics when the growing season up north gets reduced appeals to me too! Trust? Yep, already done. Nice to correspond with another thinking person, sometimes it seems that there are so few. Keep your powder dry!

        • Don Duncan

          Maybe a 2d passport/identity? If they wanted him dead though, he would be dead. TPTB have him right where they want him. Home, he would have a much bigger audience. That, they don’t want. Now they can say he is with his “handlers”.

    • Thank you for sharing your experience! Anything involving government seems to be a minefield of sorts, and it is a good reminder that there is no straightforward definitive process when dealing with bureaucrats.

  • georgesilver

    Today is the anniversary of (to my mind) the fake Nice truck attack. This is a much more worthy item than worrying about the possible need for a second passport which is a very unlikely need for a normal person.
    Time line:-
    Nice firework display starts 2200 and finished 20 minutes later.
    Gun fire heard and police clear the streets.
    People have no idea what they are running from.
    2250 Streets clear for hoax attack setup.
    2300 Truck starts its slow drive.
    Here is is a 10 minute video including real witnesses and fake ones

    Sailboat to Mexico or further south solves a great deal. Can’t patrol all borders all the time.

    Three “hopefullies” in two paragraphs?? C’mon, Joe, you can do better than that…we hope.
