    Well, Dual citizenship is allowed... You can hold two passports, Why not residency, then...

    Depending on what Countries you are a citizen of you may hold more than one citizenship.

    As far as being a permanent resident of more than one Country, that is illegal.

    You can only choose to be a permanent resident of one Country.

    If the 2 Countries are border Countries (Canada/USA) you can be a citizen of whatever Country, hold Canadian permanent residence and hold a permanent resident status in the US with commuter status. Meaning you live in Canada and you work in the United States as a commuter.

    Hope that answers your question.

    Depends which countries, illegal means against the law and the law varies from place to place. It shouldn't be illegal though, if your ethnicity is varied let your citizen papers be varied but if you end up with permadent residentcy in like 50 countries you're going to have to learn to write really small on applications asking you about permadent residency and get really really organized for travel.

    I would think it was illegal, since the operative word here is permanent. You cannot be in several places at once.
