Acquiring another citizenship during USCIS process

5 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts


My wife just acquired another citizenship (mine) last week. She has not cancelled her old one either. The question is, do we need to notify the U.S. Consulate in Hong Kong (which is where we live), or the USCIS directly? I remember whether the applicant holds any other nationality was one of the questions on the DS-260 but that's already long gone and I am wondering if the USCIS are still interested in what new nationalities we may have acquired since that submission.

With the new citizenship her name (spelling of her first name, plus her last name altogether) has changed as well. When we eventually naturalize we would like that to be under her newly acquired name, so I suppose we would eventually have to link her new identity to our case and remove the old one. However, would like to find out if it can wait until next month when we arrive in the U.S, as we do not want to complicate things with so little time left for our trip.
