Dual Citizenship

The countries below have laws on dual citizenship (being a citizen of two countries at once). Many countries have restrictions regarding losing or acquiring citizenship and for that reason they are not listed below. The countries marked with an asterisk (✱) have restrictions. For more information about losing your present citizenship when you naturalize as a U.S. citizen, speak with a representative of your government before filing for naturalization. Even if your country allows Dual Citizenship you are required by U.S. law to use a U.S. passport to leave and re-enter the United States.
