Swiss citizenship is prerequisite to Swiss passport. I naturalized and my country-of-birth, not permitting dual citizenship, revoked my original passport,

Re: Permanent Resident appose to swiss citzenship

that is because you cannot have dual citizenship. There is no magic wand.

Sorry.

dual citizenship is only available if both countries are ready to do it.
if a country doesn't have this provision, there is no way a citizen can get it
if your friends got it, i think u should ask them first.
most probably, their country provides dual citizenship.

better choice is to go for swiss as there is a chance that many asian countries will support dual citizenship after some time
