Ok, a veery difficult question for me. Hope i can get some advice on this one two. I have a double citizenship. Should i mention it? In Form DS-230, it's written "If dual national, give both", it's pretty much clear. BUT in form DS-156 there's only "Nationality" box. Should i only put Russian coz im doing it all as a russian citizen???? now im worried about that.....

your opinions will be greatly appreciated....

I`m almost sure you need to put both. My husband was born in Mexico but he is american now. It is like you get a passport and you can call yourself american and american is what? nationality! Hope that helps.

it's simple really...

if they ask put all citizenships - put them all. you don't have to conseal your second citizenship, for example, you have to present CIS your trips to russia and what is better evidence then your stapms in russian passport??!!

if they ask nationality - answer is USA... put anything else and they have right to ask why the hell you' re filing as us citizen?

i've passed through it without problems,

good luck
