Trinidad and Tobago Citizenship.
« on: July 11, 2012, 10:03:18 AM »
I just got my US Citizenship, my question is.

1. Do I still have T&T citizenship and rights.

2. What privileges do I lose as a Trinidadian by becoming a US Citizen.

3. Can I return home and live when ever I feel to, can I buy a home etc etc.

Strange, I know a Canadian citizen with a Can passport who ran in a bye election a few yrs ago.
Now I guess he have TT citizenship becz he grew up in TT and his father is TT. But perhaps it's different for bye elections.

A bye-election is an election governed by the same prevailing authority. Hello?! The person either didn't make a truthful/complete declaration as to citizenship or relinquished the acquired citizenship. Also, could depend on the basis of the person's acquisition of CAN citizenship. It's not a blanket thing.

(1) Yes

(2) As a prior poster said, you may not be able to hold elected office with the T&T Govt.

(3) Yes.

I've been a dual citizen of the US and T&T for years, and I still maintain 2 passports (my T&T passport and my US passport). 

Despite the fact that you swore an oat when you became a US Citizen, one is still considered a citizen of T&T as per T&T's own rules and allowances for duals.  In fact, you could even become a citizen of a few other countries also if you simply invest a nominal sum (even as low as US$25,000) into that country's economy via a real estate purchase etc.  In a case like that you can have tri or quad citizenships, thus still qualifying for certain rights and priviledges of each country.

Isn't there a rule where if you leave the country for more than a year then your T&T citizenship/passport may be invalided?
