Do I have to fill out an ESTA form if I have dual citizenship (Italian-US) and have two passports?
No. If you are a US citizen and have a valid US passport, you must enter the US using your US passport.You should not use your Italian passport to enter the US, as you are also a US citizen.This is because the US government allows but doesn't recognize your dual citizenship. For the US government, you are only a US citizen in the United States.A US citizen must use a US passport to enter and depart the US, irrespective of holding other passports/citizenships.
What are the steps to obtain an American citizenship?
It’s similar to getting all western countries citizenship but waiting period will be longer. If you come as a PR or GC then 3–5 years depending on the immigration law. If you come as a student then 8–10 yrs to get citizenship. If you come under sponsorship then, you have to work and pay taxes for 10 yrs then you are eligible for PR and citizenship. The process is as follows for USGet your GC and land within one year of stamping of visa.Stay continuously for 1095 days (3yrs)Apply for citizenship and waiting period is 2–10 yrs in US but other western countries it’s 2–3 yrs process time.Citizenship test if you pass then 4–6 months waiting period for oath.After citizenship, you can apply for passport to get it in 2–3 months time.P.S I WAS TOLD THAT USA PROCESS TIME IS SO BAD THAT, people applying now for citizenship will get theirs in 75 years.
I have both US and German Citizenship. Which passport do I show for a trip to Italy? Do I fill out a "declaration of presence" at the hostel?
If you’re flying from the USA to Italy, you show your US passport when you leave the USA (if they ask you), and of course when you return. This is the law.You can use either passport when you enter Italy. But it might probably be easier to use your German one. That way you can stay as long as you want, if something unexpected happens, and I think you get to go through a shorter queue at immigration. The only downside might be if you don’t speak German they might look at you strangely and you might have to explain yourself, although this is highly unlikely (I’m in a similar situation - Australian/Swiss - and it’s never really happened to me).US citizens also get visa-free entry to the Schengen Zone, so it doesn’t really matter which passport you use.I don’t remember filling in a dichiarazione di presenze when I visited Italy. We stayed at an AirBNB for part of the time and a hotel the other part of the time, so maybe the hotel did it for us, but I don’t think we did anything when we did the AirBNB. In most countries, either the hotel does it for you, or it’s something you only have to do if you’re staying longterm. But I can’t really answer that part of the question definitively.
People with dual US citizenship complain about filling out a US tax return, but how does the US know where they are and what happens if they don’t?
If you are a dual citizen living in another country and don’t file a US tax return, and the US finds out about it, the US government might sue you for millions of dollars just for not filing, even if you owe no taxes at all. See: U.S. sues Vancouver dual citizen for over $1M for not reporting accountsThe penalty is purely for not reporting accounts, not for taxes owing or penalties for unpaid taxes.U.S. citizens (including dual citizens) with signing authority over non-American bank accounts are required to report them, along with the highest amount in the account during the year, on a form called a Report of Foreign Bank and Financial Accounts, or FBAR.Unlike other industrialized countries, the U.S. requires citizens, including dual citizens, to file tax returns no matter where in the world they live.Selling a house and putting the money in a bank account puts the value of the house into the penalty calculation. And moving that money around between different accounts multiplies it, as each dollar is counted several times.The average house in Vancouver is worth more than $1 million, so selling it, and then moving the money around between Canadian accounts can incur insane amounts of penalties from the IRS, which is something most dual citizens are not aware of. Many Canadians have acquired dual citizenship by accident (by being born in a US hospital or having a parent who has American citizenship) and are not aware they are US citizens. Finding out can be a nasty shock for them.The obvious way to avoid this is for dual citizens to revoke their US citizenship, but the US government has made revoking US citizenship nearly impossible. I know people who have been trying to do this for years, with little success. See: Unwilling dual citizens face 10-month wait to shed U.S. citizenship in TorontoUS citizenship has become a real problem for dual citizens residing in Europe because many European banks will cancel their bank accounts and refuse to deal with them because of the enormous complications involved in filing documents with US tax authorities.US citizenship has become like leprosy, it is an affliction nearly impossible to cure without professional help.Hint: It’s much quicker and cheaper for a Canadian citizen to go to Mexico to revoke their US citizenship, because the US government hasn’t figured out this dodge around their laws. See: Meet the Alberta man who went to Tijuana to renounce his U.S. citizenship
How do I fill out the N-600 certificate of citizenship application if you already received a US passport from the state department and returned your Greencard as the questions seem to assume one is still on immigrant status?
In order to file N-600 to apply for a Certificate of Citizenship, you must already be a US citizen beforehand. (The same is true to apply for a US passport • you must already be a US citizen beforehand.) Whether you applied for a passport already is irrelevant, it is normal for a US citizen to apply for a US passport, applying for a passport never affects your immigration status, as you must already have been a US citizen before you applied for a passport.The form’s questions are indeed worded poorly. Just interpret the question to be asking about your status before you became a citizen, because otherwise the question would make no sense, as an applicant of N-600 must already be a US citizen at the time of filing the application.(By the way, why are you wasting more than a thousand dollars to apply for a Certificate of Citizenship anyway? It basically doesn’t serve any proof of citizenship purposes that a US passport doesn’t already serve as.)
Is it easy to apply for US Citizenship by myself by simply filling out the form or should I go thru a lawyer. I have had a green card for 15 years and never commited any crime etc. Any advice?
That is obviously up to you, but it tends to be the type of thing a person typically does on their own.I filled out the N-400 form myself and it wasn't too complicated. Make sure you read the document checklist (Page on uscis.gov) and follow it to the t. Collect all the information, make sure it's full and correct. If at a doubt, err on the side of being completely truthful. For example, answering the question "Have you ever been arrested, cited or detained by any law enforcement office for any reason?", I disclosed a traffic citation I received, got a confirmation from the DMV that the ticket was paid and attached it to my application.I'm not a lawyer - but that's my personal experience. I'm now a citizen of these United States.
Why does birth abroad out of wedlock for a US citizen mother result in stricter citizenship acquisition requirements for the child (e.g., 5-year presence) compared to those for a US citizen father?
It doesn’t. The requirements for acquisition of US citizenship for a child born abroad out of wedlock to a US citizen father also requires 5 years of physical presence in the US before the child’s birth, including 2 years after turning 14, as well as additional requirements. So the requirements for being born out of wedlock to a US citizen father are stricter (due to the additional requirements for acknowledgement of paternity and written statement of support) than for being born out of wedlock to a US citizen mother, not the other way around.You are misinterpreting what you are reading from that Department of State page you are reading (although the page could have been written more clearly). It says:A person born abroad out-of-wedlock to a U.S. citizen father may acquire U.S. citizenship under Section 301(c) or 301(g) of the INA, as made applicable by the “new” Section 309(a) of the INA if: […]The phrase “under Section 301(c) or 301(g) of the INA” incorporates the physical presence requirements under those sections of the law, with section 301(c) for birth to two US citizen parents, and 301(g) for birth to one US citizen parent and one alien parent. Section 301(g) requires a physical presence of 5 years of physical presence, including 2 years after turning 14, as described in the “Birth Abroad in Wedlock to a U.S. Citizen and an Alien” section above.If you read the actual law, INA 309(a) says:(a) The provisions of paragraphs (c), (d), (e), and (g) of section 301, and of paragraph (2) of section 308, shall apply as of the date of birth to a person born out of wedlock if• […]And INA 301(g) says:The following shall be nationals and citizens of the United States at birth:[…](g) a person born outside the geographical limits of the United States and its outlying possessions of parents one of whom is an alien, and the other a citizen of the United States who, prior to the birth of such person, was physically present in the United States or its outlying possessions for a period or periods totaling not less than five years, at least two of which were after attaining the age of fourteen years: Provided, That any periods of honorable service in the Armed Forces of the United States, or periods of employment with the United States Government or with an international organization as that term is defined in section 1 of the International Organizations Immunities Act (59 Stat. 669, 22 U.S.C. 288) by such citizen parent, or any periods during which such citizen parent is physically present abroad as the dependent unmarried son or daughter and a member of the household of a person (A) honorably serving with the Armed Forces of the United States, or (B) employed by the United States Government or an international organization as defined in section 1 of the International Organizations Immunities Act, may be included in order to satisfy the physical-presence requirement of this paragraph. This proviso shall be applicable to persons born on or after December 24, 1952, to the same extent as if it had become effective in its present form on that date,So as you can see INA 301(g) specifies conditions, including the physical presence requirement, to be met for a child born abroad to one US citizen parent and one alien parent, regardless of whether the child is born in or out of wedlock. INA 309(a) says that in the case of a child born out of wedlock to an American father, INA 301(g) will apply only if some additional conditions (relating to acknowledgement of paternity and written statement of support, etc.) are met.
