Thread: For Sphyrapicus

  1. #1
    Hey Sphyrapicus, I was just reading some of your posts on BE regarding dual citizenship. I didn't know that when I apply for my N-400, I could retain my Canadian Citizenship and have dual citizenship status. Is there any additional paperwork to do this or do you just fill out the regular N-400 form? Thank you again.

    Hey Patti,

    No, nothing extra needed. You fill out the N-400 and apply for citizenship. You will be asked to renounce any foreign citizenship at the swearing in ceremony but it has no bearing on your Canadian citizenship. In order to renounce your Canadian citizenship you need to fill out an official form and pay $100 to the Canadian government. Otherwise, if you don't, then you are a dual citizen.

    Thanks for the information Sphyrapicus. Do all LPR's from any country going through naturalization here in the US have the right to dual citizenship or do some have to give up their citizenship from their country of birth?

  5. #5
    No, many countries do not allow dual citizenship.

    For example, Burma, Denmark, Ecuador, Egypt, Finland, India, Indonesia, Iran, Japan, Kenya, Korea, Malaysia, Norway, Pakistan, Peru, Philippines, Singapore, Sweden, Syria, Thailand, Vietnam and Zimbabwe.

    Well I'm really glad that Canada does allow it Thanks a million Sphyrapicus!

    My husband is from Pakistan.

    What are the ramifications of his becoming a USC?
