Change of nationality

8 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Hey all,

I recently naturalised as a british citizen and my fiance is sending off my paperwork to uscis to update them on my change of nationality. We're kinda confused..when he called them, the ever so (not) useful customer service adviser just said,send as much as we can. We don't know if the copies need certification or not and also, we don't know if a new g325 needs to be sent out. The adviser didn't mention it so I am presuming they don't need one but we're not entirely sure. If anyone has been in this situation and knows what to send out, please let me know. Thanks :thumbs:

IMO, there's nothing you need to be sending to anyone right now.

Many people get approved for US visas who hold dual nationality.

When you receive Packet 3 from the London consulate, you will need to disclose that dual nationality. At that time, you may also want to disclose that the grant of UK citizenship occurred since the visa petition was filed.

The US government will require the visa be placed in the passport of your nationality of birth.

You still require a police certificate for every country you have lived in for more than six months from the age of 16.


Our journey together on this earth has come to an end.

I will see you one day again, my love.

No.. every country they've lived for more than TWELVE months. Not 6. Here: http://www.visajourney.com/forums/index.php?app=core&module=attach&section=attach&attach_rel_module=post&attach_id=12657 It's also on the State website.

Thanks for the chart Vanessa.

Since I was too lazy to double-check myself, I mis-spoke. :P

oh gosh, sorry for not replying sooner..i didn't even notice this thread came up(been too busy ranting in other threads :blush:)

I didn't renounce my other citizenship but i think i will as i don't really need it to be honest. When my fiance spoke to an adviser at vsc, the adviser said i should send my paperwork over as evidence of my new nationality..anyway, after i posted here, he called them and they said they don't require another g325. A while back, my mother called the US embassy in london to ask them if naturalising at the stage where a visa is being processed may cause problems..that adviser said it wouldn't be a problem and all i'd have to do is take all my paperwork with me and they would stamp the visa in the british passport. Anyway, we'll see what happens over the next few weeks as we await the NOA2.

ps: When I entered UK, I was 13 so I guess I won't need any international police certificates..

Please do come back and let us know how this works out for you. I think you'll probably be just fine with your recent UK naturalization. My understanding though from research is they will put your K1 visa in the passport of your birth country. So let us know if they go with your British passport!

Hmm, i think they may have to even if they don't want to. My birth country legislates that if I voluntarily take on another nationality, I have automatically denounced my birth nationality. I'd just require a certificate for it which I can get from their embassy in UK.
