Hi there,
I am filling in the form CIT003 - Citizenship Application for Minor for my daughter (currently a PR). I have a question regarding Section 6B. This section asks to identify the current citizenship of the minor. My daughter currently has two citizenships; Mexican and British. Her Mexican citizenship is noted on her PR card and she uses her UK passport on trips to enter US. My question is whether I should list both citizenships in section 6B.

Also, I understand that she may need to renounce one of her citizenships to obtain Canadian citizenship. I would appreciate if anyone could let me know if this is the case and if so, at what point she will be are asked to prove that she has renounced one of her citizenships.

Grateful for your comments

Hello,

Thank you for sharing your situation and question with us.

According to the Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) Call Centre, yes, you should list all.

Regarding your second question, you can find some detailed information on the Citizenship and Immigration Canada (CIC) website.

Here is an excerpt,

What is dual citizenship?

Every country decides whom it considers to be a citizen. If more than one country recognizes you as a citizen, you have dual citizenship.

You do not apply for dual citizenship and there is no related certificate. Canadians are allowed to take foreign citizenship while keeping their Canadian citizenship.

If you are a permanent resident but not a Canadian citizen, ask the embassy of your country of citizenship about its rules before applying for Canadian citizenship.


I hope this information is helpful. Please let us know if you have further questions and if there is any follow up to your question/situation.
