It should come as no surprise that the right of the soil is far from being a common practice in the world. The chances are that the only state that uses jus soli you've heard of is the U.S. Indeed, America is one of the very few countries that have birthright citizenship, and it imposes no significant restrictions to it. But what you may not know is that the U.S. is arguably the costliest state to give birth in. On average, care during/after pregnancy and delivery will cost you as much as $30,000 (leaving potential complications out of account).
Given those sky-high prices and Donald Trump's plans to abolish the right of the soil in America, it's worth considering other countries with automatic citizenship by birth. Here's a complete list of those nations by continent:
- South America: Argentina, Bolivia, Chile, Brazil, Uruguay, Ecuador, Venezuela, Guyana, Paraguay, and Peru.
- North America: Canada, Costa Rica, Mexico, Antigua and Barbuda, Barbados, Trinidad and Tobago, Belize, The Dominican Republic, Honduras, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, El Salvador, Grenada, Saint Kitts and Nevis, Panama, Guatemala, Jamaica, Nicaragua, and Saint Lucia.
- Oceania: Fiji and Tuvalu.
- Africa: Lesotho and Tanzania.
- Asia: Pakistan.
