Hello melje76,

You need to obey the laws of both countries. Some countries don't allow dual citizenship that is why they require the denouncement of the your former citizenship before granting the new one. However, U.S. allows its citizens to hold a second nationality with any nation the individual qualifies to hold one with, whether earned through descent, marriage or residency.

Steps how to File for Dual Citizenship
If you are a citizen of another country applying for U.S. citizenship. First check if your home country permits dual citizenship then, proceed with the application only if it is permitted. Lastly, complete and submit Form N-400, Application for Naturalization.
