    Is it really worth having though? Unless you plan on living there in the future (and why would you want to), then I can't see any value in having a US passport. US citizens who live abroad have to pay American income tax!
    I didn't know that. I guess the thought of having an American passport sounds cool. Nothings set in stone and obviously I still have to consider a lot of things [like American tax].

    It's absolutely not worth it. My mother pays a lot of tax working abroad with her passport. She will likely give it up soon.

    UK and Overseas Citizenship of India.

    Despite the misleading name, it's not full citizenship of India :lol:
    It does give me the right to go there as and when I want, live there for however long i want, work, start a business, own property etc.
    The only things I can't do is own agricultural land or stand for election. Not that I'd want to do either anyway :laugh:

    Whoops - sorry! I didn't realise that you had to have a passport from somewhere to be considered a 'dual national', so I voted for 2 instead of 1. If this is for research (I'm guessing that it might be because of the deadline for the poll), please take my mistake into account.

    You dont have to hold a passport, if youre registered with the government as a citizen thats fine =]

    Tax aside American citizenship does have certain perks; its the most powerful passport isnt it?
    Excellent consular assistance
    if i recall they dont extradite their citizens?

    I wouldn't have thought that a US passport is particularly powerful. Swiss passports are supposed to be the most coveted, and German and Swedish passports give you the most visa-free access.

    It's actually not, IIRC the UK is like 2nd or 3rd most powerful, while the US is pretty far down, like 11th.


    Edit: See here, the US is the 5th most powerful passport, where as the UK is 2nd.

    What's the rationale behind that?
