After our I130 was already sent off and approved, and we were gathering the documents for NVC, we realized we left out that my husband is a dual citizen. We honestly just didn't even think of it. We realized we made a mistake, and started filling out his dual citizenship when asked for his nationality/country. We've also included his British passport and police certificate. I've explained this in the cover letter, and was hoping you all could read over this and let me know if I need to say something different/more/better/etc.
Thank you very much.

To Whom It May Concern:
My name is [name], and I am the petitioner and appointed agent for NVC case number ___________. My spouse, [name], is the beneficiary of this case.
Please find enclosed the completed Document Cover Sheet as well as the items requested.
Since submitting our I-130 Petition to USCIS we have realized we made a mistake in filling out our forms. My husband and the beneficiary, [name], is a dual citizen of Canada and the United Kingdom. He was born and raised in Canada but received his United Kingdom citizenship at birth because his mother was from Scotland. He applied for his United Kingdom passport in 2011 and this allowed him to live and work in the United Kingdom.
Since realizing our mistake, we have included a copy of his British passport, British police certificate, and have written Canada and the United Kingdom when it asks for citizenship on the forms.
We apologize for the discrepancy. It was a simple oversight.
Please do not hesitate to contact me if there are any concerns. My contact information is available below.
Thank you very much,
