      The US does accept dual citizenship but they expect you to choose their side should your countr and the US go to war.

      Call your embassy to find out if they accept dual citizenship.

        There is no such thing asprobationary citizenship.Once you become US citizen,your prime loyalty should be for the US side or there is consequence for this thing since you have swore in to defend it.As regards dual citizenship, some countries allow it like Mexico.But of course there is a whole debate on this matter of loyalty should war occurs.Let us know of your country of origin and we'll see whether it recognizes dual citisenship.

          The INS would like you to think that they do not allow dual citizenship. They will make you surrender your old passport when citizenship is granted. I was told by an INS officer that I could not retain citizenship of my birth nation; however, that was a blatant lie. Many (most) other countries do not recognize the US's right to strip you of your birth citizenship and will issue a replacement passport upon request. Having dual citizenship does not give you special rights in the US (ie: you can't claim that you are exempt from something because your Japanese citizenship protects you...) You will be considered an American Citizen...

            Why do you want to have a dual citizenship? Is there any reason you want to do that? If you become a U.S. A citizen, why don't you take USA as your primary country?.

            I am not a USA citizen yet but I will be soon.

            If I were you, I would take USA side.

              When I apply for my citizenship, I plan on having dual citizenship.
              The reason being that I'm from France and I want my daughter to have the choice to go to college here or there.

              Not to mention that traveling back and from Europe is much easier when you are European and I plan on going there every year to see my family when I have the money.

                So, you mean it is hard to travel there if you are US citizen?

                  Not to travel it's not but for everything else.
                  My daughter would be able to enter the univesities without problems. Tuition costs almost nothing there.
                  Most doors open : )

                    I hold a British Passport,and it can be used in every European country,and it does entitle me to live and work in any European country,hence my reason on having a DUAL citizenship,like MARIE I would like to have an option on travelling on either my US passport or my BRITISH passport.

                      Yes, dual citizenship is great, you can love two countries, even if you only live in one.
                      Both my wife and I are duals, so our children can have 4 citizenships (eventually they will have to make a choice for only 2, many countries allow dual, few allow multiple)

                        As others have mentioned - the advantage of dual citizenship is the ability to travel on the passport that you choose. For example - if you want to go to cuba - good luck on an American passport. Traveling in many other parts of the world is also done much easier on other countries passports.

                        Additionaly - usually there is some social benefit from countries you are a citizen of. Many countries look out for the well-being and rights of their Ex-Pats.

                        Having dual citizenship does not mean you are less of an American. As a matter of fact many people move from permanent residency to citizenship due to a sense of patriotic pride. There are not a lot of other incentives (my son is not so keen about becoming a citizen and then having to register for the draft for example - although he is only 12 at the moment). Many 'immigrants' love this country as much as any natural born citizen - sometimes even more... Often they realize the value of American freedom and are willing to sacrifice everything for it...

                        But what that has to do with anything else on this post - I don't know... I need another coffee..

                          There are some countries that do not allow dual citizenship with the American one. Others are fine.

                              So, d'amigela, other countries don't allow dual citizenship with the American one, or U.S. does not?
