Hello,

I am new to this website and I have a question for the community.

I am outside of the country, I am in Mexico because I got separated.

I got my citizenship in November, and someone told me that I could loose my citizenship if I am outside of the country too long.

Can you give me guides if that is true. If I can loose my citizenship for being out ot the country?

Your inputs will be greatly appreciated.

thanks :)

Loose = not firmly attached. Lose = not there anymore.

You can lose a loose bolt or nut, but you can't lose your US citizenship, even if you had moved to another planet in another Galaxy. That's why citizenship is so desirable: you can live where you want, how long you want, yet you have a RIGHT to return to the US of A anytime you want.

Only US citizens have this right. But . . . you will have to file your yearly tax return even if you don't live in the US anymore.

There is no room in this country for hyphenated Americanism. When I refer to hyphenated Americans, I do not refer to naturalized Americans. Some of the very best Americans I have ever known were naturalized Americans, Americans born abroad. But a hyphenated American is not an American at all . . . . The one absolutely certain way of bringing this nation to ruin, of preventing all possibility of its continuing to be a nation at all, would be to permit it to become a tangle of squabbling nationalities, an intricate knot of German-Americans, Irish-Americans, English-Americans, French-Americans, Scandinavian-Americans or Italian-Americans, each preserving its separate nationality, each at heart feeling more sympathy with Europeans of that nationality, than with the other citizens of the American Republic . . . . There is no such thing as a hyphenated American who is a good American. The only man who is a good American is the man who is an American and nothing else.

There are only a couple of ways to "lose" your citizenship... being out of the country for an extended period of time is not one of them

You can lose your permenant residency though being out of the country, so this is what I think you are confusing it with. As the others stated, you can live for as long as you want outside the US as a citizen, just make sure you are still filing taxes as that is still required regardless if you own or how long you are living outside the US.

Just don't go joining any enemies of America's military or governments and you should be fine...
