Dual Nationality

U.S. and Bermudian

U.S. laws allow for U.S. citizens to acquire Bermudian status without losing their U.S. citizenship.  For information on Bermudian status please contact the Bermuda Department of Immigration.  Citizens of both the U.S. and Bermuda are recognized as such by both governments.  For more information on U.S. citizenship please follow this link.

Being born in Bermuda does not automatically make a child a Bermudian.  U.S. citizens who acquire dual nationality during childhood are not required by U.S. law to choose one nationality or another upon reaching the age of 18.  One does not risk losing U.S. citizenship unless one performs certain conclusively expatriating acts.  For more information on this please see below.
