If you’ve ever tried to look up the various paths to citizenship in a particular country, you know that, while the information is publicly available, it is scattered all across the internet, making research on the topic a time-consuming and confusing affair.

Today, IMI is making it easy for you to quickly find out the citizenship policies of every single country. With our brand new tool, the IMI Citizenship Catalog, we’ve combed through the nationality laws of 195 countries and gathered the information in a single place that provides a detailed, sortable table, as well as a series of maps and charts to help visualize global citizenship rules.
