Hi Guys-  I am filling out DS 260- I am confused for the question-  Personal Information 2 - 

I am Dual Citizen of Canada and Pakistan. I was born in Pakistan. Now  For the first question -  Country/ Region of Origin ( Nationality ) what do I put in Pakistan or Canada?   In the help section next to it,  Enter the Information you will be using when Travelling to the US. 

I want to use my Canadian passport for travelling to the United States. 

So what do i fill in first question and the second question. If somebody in this situation can answer that.

is that in DS-160 form? if it is, put in Canada since that's where you live now. there will be another question which will ask you if you have another citizenship/passport from another country and that's where you will place Pakistan.

 

if it's not in the DS-160 form, i'll still put in Canada as country of origin because this is where you live now.

 

hope this helps.

Put the citizenship you want to travel with so Canada. 

Had similar issue - born in Croatia / living in France and having dual citizenship I have put French one. 

 

And for information - they won't be asking you specifically for both birth certificates in uploading section - so I uploaded croatian one in additional documents and after the review they moved it to "required documents section". So be prepared to have both birth certificates :)

I don't know how it works with Canada but I know when you get the citizenship in France they give you your naturalization papers and French birth certificate - this is what you use to have passport etc. 

I just suppose you will have to show some proof of canadian citizenship
