Retaining South African citizenship before naturalization

3 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

I'm currently filling out my Bi-1664 and was unsure how to answer question 9.

9. How to be acquired?

Unsure if I should put naturalization or marriage? Or both?

The other question I had was about the notarized letter confirming citizenship in South Africa.

How do you draw up the letter? Do we write it ourselves, and then have the notary sign and stamp it?

Do we only state:

1. We have not taken up foreign citizenship in USA.

2. I'm currently a permanent resident and provide my resident number.

Thank you all in advance for your help!!!

Hopefully a fellow South African will see this message and reply, but you may also want to post this on the sub-Saharan regional forum. There are several South Africa specific questions posted there.
