I was born in Spain with a "birth of US citizen abroad" certificate. Can I apply to be a dual citizen of Spain and the US? Is it too late for me? Was this ever even a possibility? [more inside]
My understanding is that Australian citizens get access to a much lower tuition rate at Australian universities, and that the way student loans are repaid in Australia basically means that the repayment pauses indefinitely as long as the Australian moves abroad after graduation. Does this mean that if my kids are born/raised in the USA (but have Australian citizenship through their Australian mother), I could send them off to Australian universities and have them receive their university education more-or-less for free (since they'd presumably be returning to the US after graduation)? Or are there additional residency/repayment requirements that I'm missing? [more inside]
Flestrin minimus, a US citizen by birth and also a British citizen by descent by way of being the legitimate son of a British father, is planning to travel to London to visit family and study. He has a valid US pasport and has applied for a British passport, BUT said British passport has not yet arrived (it turns out that allowing 40% longer than the 10 week estimate was not enough extra padding). So, he has a US pasport, a one-way plane ticket and time constraints. How best to proceed? [more inside]
I'm a dual citizen of the US and Poland but for various reasons I carry only a US passport, so for what follows, "Get your Polish passport and save yourself the trouble and worry!" is not a useful answer. I would like to travel to Europe in the near to medium future, but I came across a dire warning from the US Embassy in Vienna that "It is illegal to enter the EU as an EU citizen with the U.S. passport." Is this true? (Related discussion about Ireland previously.) Although the Polish government is aware of my existence and citizenship, can and would they really post an alert not to let me in or to detain me that would show up at a passport control station in, say, France? Am I overthinking this or being paranoid? [more inside]

My friend, a dual Canadian/American citizen living in the UK, is discussing the terms of a trust with her (US) father. By the time she inherits, she may have given up US citizenship. Does this need to be mentioned so they can account for it now? [more inside]

My wife (a US citizen) is considering becoming a Hungarian citizen (this would make it easier for us to move to the EU if we choose to). This is possible because her mother's parents were born in Hungary. What are the downsides of this, excluding (a) security clearances (we don't care) and (b) social/reputational consequences (ditto). Does she have to then file Hungarian tax returns every year (even if we continue to live in the US)? Anything else we need to know?
My girlfriend was born in England to two USA citizens. She is now 31, a run-of-the-mill USA citizen and USA resident. Can she get dual citizenship in the EU via the UK, or is it far too late? What is the big picture? What is the first step?

My mother was a native-born German citizen. My father was a native-born American citizen. I was born in the United States. Shortly thereafter, my parents divorced and my mom was granted custody of me. I lived in Germany until the age of 5, presumably as a German citizen. Then my father and his family took physical custody of me, and an American court ultimately awarded legal custody to my father. Because I was born in America, I now enjoy US citizenship. Do I still have a claim to dual German and American Citizenship? [more inside]

Security Clearance/Foreign Service-filter: I'm thinking of a career in the Foreign Service when I get out of college (T-minus 4 years), which I am just now entering. While metafilter has had questions about this before, but my situation is am bit different (so I'm hoping the Foreign Service mefites from those threads can chime in). The most important distinction is that I'm looking to be a Security Engineering Officer, or in some other sort of engineering related role (which falls under "Management" I believe) not a diplomat. Much more after the jump... [more inside]

How do I travel to a country where a visa is required for one of my citizenships, but not the other?
I'm a US citizen, but through my dad I also have Swiss citizenship and a Swiss passport. I have to travel to Brazil for work and I found that for US citizens a visa is required (about $160), but Swiss citizens are exempt. Is it possible for me to travel to Brazil on my Swiss passport? If so, how would I go about doing that? [more inside]
