You can indeed!

Im half american, and have an american passport and a certificate that proudly states that I am a US citizen :P

Sometimes they can be tricky to get however, but hang in there, its perfectly possible.

You don't have to be. My friend was born in the UK but his dad's Polish (mum's English) and he still can get a Polish passport if he wants one

It probably depends on their rules. I think different countries have different rules for who is elligible for a passport. Some countries don't allow you to have dual nationality for example.

I think the law states a grandparent has to be born in the country in question, well it's like that for an Irish passport, I know because my grandad is Irish.

It really depends.

My mum wanted me to get an Irish passport, my parents both born in England, and my dads parents were British too.

The Irish Embassy said it was fine for me to have an Irish passport, but then my nan died and suddenly I wasn't allowed one any more. :|

It depends on the country! Ireland is pretty lax - my grandad is Irish so I can get one too. Helps a lot of Americans does that law. But it depends on the country in question, so all you can do is go find out! (Embassy website usually has some information)

The answer is yes, you can - I'm a dual national now thanks to connections with the Seychelles.
