Nationality is a legal political link between the individual and the state. It is a tool for geographic distribution of individuals as well as a reference instrument for the identification of the specific law for application and the competent court in a conflict mingled with a foreign element. Thus, it should be organized on the basis of acceptable principles to avoid disruption of relations among world states. The effect of nationality is not confined nor limited to the internal system of the country rather it extends to cover the international system as well however, despite this fact the general principles of nationality may be breached causing the existence of dualism of nationality, and consequently necessitates all efforts to avoid and eliminate it’s causes. The Jordanian legislator worked to avoid dualism of nationality in several cases, but failed to do as such in others. This research discusses definition of nationality dualism causes and methods of prevention both at the local and international levels and the position of the Jordanian legislator towards it.
