Comments: You telling me if I became a US citizen I would have to go to T&T to get dual citizenship apply for it there not in the us and also how does this affect me in the long run?
If you became a US Citizen? You are currently a T&T Citizen? If so, then you do not lose your citizenship, however the US can ask you to give it up.
Comments: If my husband was born in Trinidad, came to Canada and became a Canadian citizen, is it possible for our children to remain Canadian citizens (by birth and passport) but also now get a dual Trinidadian citizenship? The main reason we are interested in this is for sports purposes -- instead of representing Canada we may explore having them compete on behalf of Trinidad...is this possible?
Hi Shari, I don't see why not since your husband is a Trinidadian. You will have to make some little paper work which I think is a stamp on your kid's passport. I don't know where you are located but you should contact the Trinidadian Embassy closer to you for details. I am very confident they should not have a problem in getting dual citizenship.

Comments: The U.S. will not allow allow dual citizenship only if you were born a U.S. citizen. There are a few exceptions to the rule, however, if you were a born citizen of the United States dual citizenship does not seem to be an option. However, if you are a naturalized citizen of the United States if your country of birth allow dual citizenship, the U.S. will allow it. Trinidad allows for dual citizenship, so if you were to be naturalized in the U.S. you would not have to give up your Trini citizenship. Canada allows for dual Citizenship, but like the U.S. they do not encourage it. I am not aware of the in depth laws of Canada, but if someone know, please add.
