  • Advantages & Disadvantages Of Dual Citizenship

    According to Offshore News Flash:

    A person with dual citizenship is a citizen of two countries at the same time. Dual citizenship (sometimes called dual nationality) happens automatically in some situations, such as when a child is born to parents in the United States to foreign parents. In this case, the child (unless the parents are foreign diplomats) generally becomes a citizen of the U.S. as well as of the parents’ home nation. Similarly, if a child of U.S. citizens is born overseas, the child may automatically become a citizen of both the U.S. and the country of birth, depending on that country’s laws. For more, see Understand The Requirements For U.S. Citizenship.

    Dual citizenship can also be achieved through specialized legal processes, such as when a foreign national marries a U.S. citizen. In this case, dual citizenship is not automatic, but is possible if the foreign national has been a permanent resident (green card holder) for at least three years, has been living in marital union with U.S. citizen spouse during that time and meets other eligibility requirements.
