DUAL CITIZENSHIP

Dual citizenship allows a person to have citizenship in two countries at the same time, and that person is fully entitled to all the rights and benefits offered by both countries. U.S. law does not obligate a person to choose one citizenship over another.

 

If you have dual citizenship in the U.S. and another country, you must always use your U.S. passport when entering and leaving the United States.

PROOF OF CITIZENSHIP

The following documents are legally acknowledged as proof of U.S. citizenship:

1. Certificates of Citizenship: You may apply for a Certificate of Citizenship if you were born abroad to U.S. citizen parents, and your parents did not get a Consular Report of Birth Abroad for you before you turned 18. 

2.  Certificates of Naturalization: Foreign nationals receive a Certificate of Naturalization when they become American citizens.

REPLACEMENT OF LOST CITIZENSHIP CERTIFICATE

If you had previously been issued a Certificate of Citizenship or Certificate of Naturalization and the document had been lost, stolen or destroyed, you may ask for a replacement by submitting Form N-565 (Application for Replacement Naturalization/Citizenship Document) to USCIS.
