If someone is born at the border of two countries does that person receive dual citizenship?

Most countries on Earth don't grant automatic citizenship to one born in their territory. But assuming a baby was born right on an international border between two places that did grant citizenship it's likely the parents would have to negotiate with these countries to see which one would issue the birth certificate. Highly unlikely both nations would issue duplicate documents on such a birth.

No; you're either born on one side or the other. Also; most countries don't give citizenship just because you're born there.

No. All children take the citizenship of their parents - birthright citizenship. Whether they might claim citizenship based on jus solis (birth within a country's territory) depends on whether a country allows that.

No. A border is actually the thinnest of lines. If is almost inconceivable to be born on both sides of it at the same time.

Generally no. Each country has its own rules, so it's possible on some border, but not most.

Lol. That is very funny... even if someone is born at the country doesn't mean one automatically gets citizenship. Most countries have very strict laws in getting citizenship. As for being born at the border, not such a thing. Either you pass or you don't pass the border. If you are/pass at an illegal crossing, you will get arrested and deported.

No one is born straddling a border.
