Thank you very much for your kind reply. Please kindly move my question to the US Immigration forum so that I could get advise/opinion from those familiar with US immigration policies.secret.simon wrote: ↑Wed Jan 02, 2019 7:52 pmUnsure about your questions regarding US immigration and for those, I will move your question to the US Immigration forum.
As regards the UK, the UK does not place any limitations on how many other nationalities you can have. I faintly recall one case on these forums of a family having four nationalities across four continents.
Short answer - Yes, in order to get US citizenship and subsequently US passport you will need to be a legal resident (Green Card) in the US for over 5 years regardless of the nationalities that you hold.

Long answer - Candidates for US citizenship through naturalization are forced to (at least hypothetically) renounce their previous citizenship at the United States naturalization ceremony.
The renouncing of one’s previous citizenship is part of the oath that new US citizens must take, and failing to honor that oath could result in the loss of citizenship in the United States.
While most countries recognize the Oath of Allegiance in the United States to be a binding contract regarding one’s citizenship, other countries have stated that the oath has no effect on their own citizenship laws. The US government used to aggressively pursue these cases to get the dual citizens to renounce their citizenship, but this is no longer the case.
