Thread: Question re my husband's potential TRIPLE citizenship

  1. #1
    Okay, from reading some of these posts on multiple citizenship I'm seeing some conflicting answers regarding U.S. will and won't recognize or when. My husband was born and raised in Canada, so he's definitely got Canadian citizenship. His mother was a long time Scottish immigrant married to his Canadian father but she was not then naturalized as a Canadian citizen when she gave birth to my husband, but later did get her Canadian citizenship. So my husband has both Canadian and UK dual citizenship, and now that he's married me and may apply for U.S. naturalization in about three years he'd have a third citizenship. Would this be allowed by the U.S. or would he have to renounce something (and hopefully not me! lol) Thanks, Riley

    IIRC, the oath taken during the naturalization process express the taker to renounce any other citizenship besides the US. The kicker is, if the other countries doesn't acknowledge this, then technically your husband will still have his triple citizenship. Its a well known loophole in the US Naturalization process, which is not condone, but tolerated.

    As far as our US Gov't goes, ONLY USC status will be acknowledged once he obtains Naturalization. Everying else, OUT the window.

    No. You get to keep your other citizenship. That way if they revoke his citizenship for fraud, criminal record that shows up, etc. -- they can still deport you.

    moondin, you are not very clear on what you last wrote.

    To the original poster....The USA does not recognize Dual, Triple or quadruple citizenship for obvious reasons already mentioned on various posts.

    Any person with potential triple citizenship. will alway create a problems for him/her.
    If you travel on other Govt. documents, and in case you need any help, You can not ask the US
    Government, because it all depends on what document yoiu have enter that country.

    Wow! If it works, you husband will posess three of the most sought-after citizenships in the world!
    Have a nice day

    Look folks, how difficult is this to understand. The US does not recognize dual nationality but at the same time, it does not oppose it....just as long as you travel on a US Passport and you treat the US citizenship as though it is the only citizenship you have. So Riley, your husband will have no problems whatsoever having Tri-Nationality.

    I will confirm that you can maintain dual nationality, especially with the countries mentioned. You may even travel on another passport, however, if you ever enter the USA on a passport other than that of the US, you may be subject to immigration laws (i.e. you may be required to leave again within three months.)

    However, my father travelled to my wedding in another country on another passport (his US passport had expired) and then stayed in the USA for a long time afterwards... and has had no problems including leaving or coming into the country on his US passport)

    I would recommend that you double check how this works on triple nationality. It may well be allowed, but this board is not the best place to get the right answer. Just ask an immigration official (the 800 number should be in your phonebook)

    By double checking this, you could potentially save yourself a great deal of problems later on!
