Passport Psychology’

Passport Psychology’

    Hi Ben,

    In your blog on ‘Passport Psychology’ you wrote that both your parents are from Germany, but you grew up in the US, and therefore have both a German and a US passport.
    How is that possible …? To my knowledge it takes more to have a US passport, i.e. you have to be a citizen, and that only works if you’re born in the US, or if at least one parent is a US citizen.

    It’s kind of an important question for me, because I too have both parents from Germany, but I have grown up in the US, and live here too. I only have a German passport, though, and would like to get a US passport too (I do have US social security, driver’s licence, bank accounts, home ownership).

    If you could take the time to write to me I’d really appreciate that.
    Thanks a bunch,
    Mark Seelig

    [USER=9]@Mark[/USER] S.– Ben and his brothers were all born in the US, which is I think the distinction.

    Mark you can also become a naturalized US citizen. You would need to apply for citizenship and go for an interview etc. to complete the process. You’d have to decide if the time, cost, and hassle is worth it to you.
