Re: Citizenship volcanoview July 24, 2009 09:06 am
I am not currently living overseas (though I have previously), but I think that you'll find the value of pursuing foreign citizenship varies for each individual. For highly skilled workers (e.g., attorneys), many countries will grant visa rights that let you do most anything a citizen can (except vote). So, there may not be good reasons to seek citizenship.

Also, some countries will require that you surrender your US citizenship when you apply. This may limit some job opportunities back in the US and abroad. For example, I think surrendering US citizenship may affect eligibility for the US patent bar. Also, if you wanted to work in the US again, I think you'd have to get a green card, which can take years.
