Where should I renounce?

Step 2: Where to give up US citizenship?

Where’s the best place to give up US citizenship? Once you’ve gotten dual citizenship, you’ll need to show up in person at a US embassy or consulate abroad. It doesn’t matter what your second passport is; you can have French dual citizenship and be at a consulate in Botswana and you’ll still be able to move forward with the process. As long as you’re at a post outside of the USA and have a second passport you can give up US citizenship.

Choosing a post close to home is always recommended

The diplomatic post you choose is completely up to you. Though, it must be worth mentioning that, according to some sources, the US embassies in London, Dublin, Bern, Amsterdam, Seoul, and Hong Kong see the bulk of US renunciants. The diplomatic posts in Canada, Australia and New Zealand are also quite busy. That being said, these destinations have experience with people giving up US citizenship, so they’re often more efficient than other places. On the other hand, these popular posts can often be backed up with applicants – something that can delay the process.

The most important rule to take away from this page is this: When choosing a post, it’s a good idea to choose the one closest to where you’re living, as the entire process could take days, weeks, months or even years! It’s also a good idea to ask them about their specific requirements beforehand since each place will have its own procedures and rules. Sometimes they will also send you some documents that you’ll need to fill out and present .
