It depends on the rules of the various countries. The rules in the United States are that if you are born here, you can claim US Citizenship. If you are born of US parents in Another Country, you can claim American citizenship. Those born in another country are typically required to 'pick one' when they reach the age of majority. It is possible to have Dual Citizenship, or legally obtain a passport from other countries, but it isn't recommended. Your nationality ois dicated by the country in which you were born. If your brother was born in June, that doesn't make you a Gemini.

What is the difference between nationality and citizenship?

Answer citizenshipActually, there are three (and perhaps more), namely, Nationality, Citizenship and Residence. Nationality usually describes the country where you were born.Citizenship is a legal matter, that you have been registered with the government of a country as having rights as a full citizen in that country. For most people, that is the country where they are born and continue to live, but if a person moves to another country, citizenship may be obtained in the new country, by applying to the government.Residence is the place where you have a permanent residence, where you spend most of your time during a year.So a person who is born in England, moves to Canada as a child and applies to Canada for citizenship, then spends time in France as a teacher, for example, could have English nationality, Canadian citizenship and French residence.
