I have a us & british passport

so do you just use your US one when going through us customs and use your british one when going through british customs? I am assuming if I leave the US for europe, I could use my us passport when leaving, Use my EU one when I arrive and then later depart the EU, than use my US one when I land back in the US. That would cut down a bit on waiting to clear customs.

Like Jay in Clerks2, I would totally f### an alien, unless it was just some giant fat hideous mess, but even then who knows as long as I can get drunk first.

Have you already started the process of making everyone there speak English in order to accompodate you staying in their country? :lol:

lol, no. If I get citizenship there I will do what my family did here, immerse myself in the language and learn it. I have no plans on moving to europe, but I wouldn't mind spending a few months there, being an EU citizen would make it easier. Besides, I hear that europeans have a kick ass free dental plan, lol!

no, I travel strictly on my us passport to britain for now. I think you'd have embarkment & disembarkment trouble at customs if you did that.

I only intend to use british passport if the world gets real ugly toward us travellers

Given your chosen profession I would worry more about what kind of "outpatient clinics" they have and less about dental.

So, I am beginning to get the info I need to obtain italian citizenship/passport. Just wondering if anyone else has done this and had any tips. It seems relatively easy if you are of italian descent.

I'm in the process of getting my Italian citizenship and my sister did it last year. The requirements are simple but the hoops you have to jump through are ridiculous.

I'll pm you info if you want it.

If you could give me a PM as well. I'm gonna try and find employment out in Germany this fall, and had been tod about the possibility of getting dual citizenship. (My grandmother was born in Italy, so according to what I've read, this makes me eligible for Italian citizenship)

That was one of the reasons I finally decided to get an Irish passport last year. I got fed up getting held up at Dublin Airport all the time.

I have New Zealand and Australian citizenships. I will be starting the long journey to get my US citizenship shortly.

I've heard from Aussie friends of mine that it now takes a good 2 years to become a US citizen.

You think it's going to be easy? If you think the US bureaucracy is bad you have not seen anything. It may be simple, but it won't be easy. Italians are crazy. Whenever you get your paperwork together there will be a scopero or extended coffee break. You MUST use your US passport entering the US. If the know you are a citizen (you are born in the US) they actually kick people off planes if they don't have US passports. They don't do it every time, but I've dealt with at least 3 or 4 people it happened to this year. I've been thinking of getting my Italian passport, but I'm not loving the idea of waiting in line.

As for the language you'll find that everybody wants to speak English so that they can practice.

If I'm not mistaken, in order for a US citizen to become a citizen of another country (as an adult) you have to forfeit your US citizenship.

I doubt that. The reason I am pursuing my US citizenship now is because Australia used to have that stupid law. I believe they repealed it about 2 years ago.

It might work to become a US a citizen from another country, but a US citizen cannot maintain US citizenship while swearing allegiance to another flag.

I'm pretty certain of that.

Absolutely false. The United States does not encourage or discourage people from obtaining dual citizenship. It happens all the time. Trust me.

There are a certain # of countries in Europe that have immigration laws based on jus sanguinis, or by inheritance, as opposed to jus soli (by birth). Most of the countries are countries that experienced large amounts of emigration by its citizens to the US.

The U.S. recognizes dual citizenships from certain countries, but you will have your citizenship revoked if you serve in a foreign military. The idea, I suppose is to make sure the country your getting citizenship with doesn't have a mandatory 2 year conscription for all those males 18 to 40.

You can maintain a passport from Ireland or the UK if you are a naturalized American. Whether you're a citizen per se doesn't much matter just for traveling. My in laws were born in Belfast and are naturalized, and carried US, Irish and UK passports any time they traveled "just in case".

funny thread, because tommorrow im submitting my paperwork here in croatia. by dumb luck, my cousin is the presidents secretary and she is going to make a phone call tommorrow and supposedly i will have to wait a hour and walk out with citizenship papers instead of waiting 1 or 2 years.

i know a lot about the process. its a pian. you have to get a RECENT LONG form copy of your birth certificate and marrige certificates. Then, you have to send them to the county they were submitted to get a SINGATURE VERIFICATION-NOTORIZATION. the when you get that mess back, you have to send all that to the secretary of state for a APOSTILLE SEAL. this makes the documents internationally regongnized. Then, you have to get all that stuff translated and stamped by a proper translation service . Then you have to fill out all the citizenship paperwork and send it away. i can help with the exact numbers and addresses for the other paperwork if you need it when i return just email me

its a good thing to have EU status. everyone i know uses the passport which has the shortest customs lines

good luck
