In the current world scenario, migration and dual nationality are no more uncommon phenomena.
Globalization has given optimism and opportunities to the industrious individuals in the borderless
world. This study is focused on the issues of those dual nationals who repatriate to their land of origin. The data
was gathered qualitatively using descriptive methodology from Potohar; Bewal, Gulyana, and Gujar Khan. Rapport
establishment and use of key informants helped to gain entry into the field. Observations and interview methods
were gauged in the study. Participant observation and in-depth interviews were used as tools of research. The data
collection process took place over a span of six months. Findings suggested that repatriation led to a transformation
in post-migration residence, acquisition of a neo citizenry in a socio-cultural context, trans-nationality, role reversals
and crisis pertaining to neo-identity, socio-psychological issues and preservation of cultural ties at familial, group,
community and national level
