Update on Dual Nationality for German Citizens

Under current law, German citizens interested in applying for US citizenship often required a special permission to retain German citizenship (so-called Beibehaltungsgenehmigung).

Effective June 26, 2024, this is no longer the case. The new modernization law concerning the German Citizenship Act was finally published and becomes effective on this day.

Please see the press release of the Bundesverwaltungsamt here: BVA – Beibehaltung_node – Geplante Gesetzesänderung im deutschen Staatsangehörigkeitsrecht zum Antrag auf Erteilung einer Beibehaltungsgenehmigung für Personen im Ausland (bund.de)
