It's important to note that while your dual citizenship may be recognized by another country, the US does not recognize dual citizenship. For Immigration purposes, this means that you cannot travel to the US on a foreign passport if you are a US citizen. == == The US laws on dual citizenship are somewhat ambigious. The US law states that you remain a citizen unless you a)Voluntarily apply for citizenship of another country with B) the intention of renouncing your US citizenship. So, for example, if you are a US citizen by birth, you may become a naturalized citizen of Canada. Canada does not require renouncing other citizenships, so you remain a citizen of both countries. If you are a citizen of the UK, their laws would determine if you can retain your citizenship after becoming a naturalized citizen of the US. Basically, becoming a naturalized citizen of country A may not automatically eradicate your citizenship in country B, depending on the laws of country B. Some countries, such as Iraq, require you to renounce all other citizenships. There is a long list of countries that do not allow dual citizenships (do a google search.) If you specifically want to renounce your US citizenship, you do so by filling out a form and filing it with the US embassy.

This is my personal situation: I have both citizenships and my mother is mexican, my father is american, I was born in the States and have lived in Mexico practically all my life, so both countries now allow dual citizenship. In Mexico this is relatively recent, allowing this since approximately 2002.

According to this: http://www.justice.gov.uk/reviews/docs/citizenship-education.pdf It has never been introduced as a statutory subject in primary schools. The Crick Report in 2002 made it compulsory in secondary schools but only encouraged it in primary schools.

It's possible that there were no changes between those years, but I would do it if it were me. They are constantly making software changes to computers and I find it unlikely that in 3 years time none were made, that way your computer and engine will be speaking the same language.
