I just got my ROC approved and am starting to look into the citizenship process.

 

im already a Italian and Brazilian citizen.

 

can I still become a us citizen without losing my other citizenships?

 

thanks

As far as I understand, the US allows dual citizenship; but does not technically 'recognize' it.

 

You most likely need to denounce the other citizenships, then reapply for them after you get your US citizenship. That is what we are going to be doing when that time comes.

This is incorrect.

 

As long as all your other citizenships allow multiple citizenships (which I'm pretty sure they do) you don't have to renounce anything for US citizenship.

My apologies. This is good information for myself to know then also. Thank you for the correction.

No problem :) you were right that the US doesn't recognize other citizenships. Just means that when you're in the US your other citizenship isn't recognized.
