Your Country of Nationality may be different than Country of Birth. First let’s look at the terms. Country of Birth is the country in which a person was born. Country of Citizenship is the country in which a person was born (and has not renounced or lost citizenship) or naturalized and to which that person owes allegiance and by which he or she is entitled to be protected. Country of Nationality is the country of a person’s citizenship or country in which the person is deemed a national.

Actually current version of Form N-400 Part 2 has two separate fields “Country of Birth” and “Country of Citizenship or Nationality”. And these fields should be filled out in the following way.

COUNTRY OF BIRTH. Type or print the name of the country in which you were born. Use the name of the country at the time of your birth, even if the name of the country has changed.

COUNTRY OF CITIZENSHIP OR NATIONALITY. Type or print the name of the country as it currently exists, where you are currently a citizen or national. If the country no longer exists, type or print the current name of the country with current authority.

  • If you are stateless, type or print the name of the country, as it currently exists, where you were last a citizen or national.
  • If you are a citizen or national of more than one country, type or print the name of the foreign country that issued your last passport.

And don’t forget to type or print legibly and in black ink.
