I currently hold a German passport and filed for American citizenship a few months ago. I understand that, once I become an American, I must renounce my German citizenship. How is that done? Will I be asked to hand over my passport to American authorities? Will American authorities contact the German consulate or will I have to file paperwork with the German consulate myself and inform them of the change? Is it possible to keep my German citizenship by not informing the German consulate of the change?
thanks for your help!
