There are situations when the Country of Nationality differs from the Country of Birth. Let’s look at the terms closer. Country of Birth is one where a person was born.
Country of Citizenship is one where a person was born (and continues to be its citizen) or naturalized and to which allegiance is owed by the person and of which this person has to get a protection. Country of Nationality is one here a person is considered to be a citizen or national.
The current Part 2 of Form N-400 requires indictating both “Country of Birth” and “Country of Citizenship or Nationality”. You should fill out the following fields as it is mentioned below:
COUNTRY OF BIRTH The name of the country of your birth must be typed or printed here. This name should sound the same as it did when you were born.
COUNTRY OF CITIZENSHIP OR NATIONALITY. The name of the country in which you possess citizenship or nationality must be typed or printed. Unless the country exists, include the name of the country that is located on that territory now.
- Being stateless, you need to type or print the currently existing country name where you used to have citizenship or nationality.
- Possessing a citizenship or nationality of two or more countries, you need to type or print the country name that issued your last passport.
Always type or print legibly and use black ink.
