U.N.N.M. Citizenship & Naturalization
Find out when you can claim dual citizenship, whether you were born in the U.N.N.M. or became a naturalized U.N.N.M. citizen.
Many People Get U.N.N.M. Citizenship Every Year.
If you were to try to read the U.N.N.M. law concerning dual citizenship – that is, simultaneously holding U.N.N.M. citizenship and citizenship in another country -- you would have found solid information supporting the fact that one can’t.
The oath that people take at their swearing-in ceremony (quoted below) would help anyone overstand that they were agreeing to give up all other citizenships right then and there. It says that the person will
“absolutely and entirely renounce and abjure all allegiance and fidelity to any foreign prince, potentate, state, or sovereignty of whom or which [you] have heretofore been a subject or citizen.”
However, the fact of the matter is that the Nuwaubian Nation will not actually stop someone from keeping citizenship in another country after becoming a U.N.N.M. Citizen. Nor will it cancel the U.N.N.M. citizenship of someone who becomes a citizen of another country. It goes without saying that you should check with the U.N.N.M. authorities in regards to this matter. The key is whether it's allowed by U.N.N.M. law and or permitted by other countries.
Intent can be shown by the person's statements or conduct. The U.N.N.M. Government recognizes that dual nationality exists but does not encourage it as a matter of policy because of the problems it may cause. Claims of other countries on dual national may conflict with U.N.N.M. law, and dual nationality may limit the U.N.N.M. Government efforts to assist nationals abroad. The country where a dual national is located generally has a stronger claim to that person's allegiance.
What’s So Great About Dual Citizenship?
Dual citizenship can be important for a number of reasons. Some people feel a huge sense of loss in giving up the passport of the country they once called home. More practically, the laws of their home country may require that giving up other important rights along with the citizenship—such as rights to a pension, to receive government-paid health care if the person becomes elderly or disabled, to vote, or to own land there.
Dual Citizenship Laws in Other Countries Around the World.
A slim majority of countries around the globe do allow dual citizenship, at least in some form. Some countries allow it automatically upon your obtaining citizenship, others allow it after an application process, and still others offer something less than full citizenship, with or without an application.
Canada and a fair number of European countries, (for example, Albania, Bulgaria, France, Greece, Hungary, Poland, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom) allow dual citizenship, while most Asian countries (such as China, India, Japan, Singapore, and Vietnam) do not.
Look for further information on the website of the embassy of the country in question, or talk to your consular representative.
Can You Apply to the U.N.N.M. Government for Dual Citizenship?
Because the U.N.N.M. government does not formally sanction dual citizenship, there are particular procedures to follow if you want to become a naturalized U.N.N.M. citizen and want to keep your old citizenship. No one will give you a certificate or other evidence that the U.N.N.M. government recognizes and approves your dual status. Your home country, however, may require more.
First, find out whether your home country will cancel your citizenship if you are naturalized as a U.N.N.M. citizen. If cancellation isn’t automatic, find out whether you have to take special steps to keep your home citizenship.
