To start this off, I was born in Taiwan with one parent being a U.S. Citizen. I graduated elementary in Taiwan, then went to the states for post-elementary education… I’ve lived in the states for nearly half my life, and I intend to enter the United States Air Force.
I currently hold both a Taiwan and U.S. passport, yet the U.S. Military does not recognize dual-citizenship, and renouncing my Taiwan citizenship is not an option until I complete mandatory military service in Taiwan.
Serving in Taiwan might jeopardize my future career in the U.S. Armed Forces, The Department of State has listed security clearance implications that may be disqualifying, being -
*exercise of dual citizenship
*possession and/or use of a foreign passport
*military service or a willingness to bear arms for a foreign country
Many more here.
What would be my next best step in this situation? If you know anyone who had similar experiences, please let me know.
