Most of naturalized immigrants believe that they cannot lose their citizenship, which is totally false. Here are some mistakes that may cause your losing the citizenship:
Lying or hiding information during the process of naturalization will probably make you lose the American citizenship.
A naturalized immigrant who has been charged for treason will automatically lose the citizenship.
- Serving in a foreign army
- Requesting another citizenship
If a person travels to another country, and requests its citizenship, the government of the United States will immediately assume that he or she is renouncing his or her American citizenship.
- Renouncing voluntarily
Every naturalized immigrant may decide to renounce his or her citizenship, and resort to an American Consulate or Embassy so as to sign an oath of renunciation. As a consequence of renouncing, you will lose all the distinctive privileges, rights and liberties of an American citizen. It is also likely that requesting a new visa will take you longer.
