I'm a green card holder in the US and got my green card when I was an Indonesian citizen. I was granted Swedish citizenship recently and had to surrender my Indonesian citizenship. Do I need to notify USCIS of this change? If so, how?
If not, I'm planning on traveling to Sweden this Summer. Will I face difficulty when entering the US if my passport is Swedish instead of Indonesian?
Taking Swedish citizenship, by itself, should have no impact on your permanent resident status in the U.S. Your passport and green card should still get you admitted to the U.S.
The above is intended only as general information, and does not constitute legal advice. You must speak with an attorney to discuss your individual case.
One does not need to notify USCIS of a change in foreign citizenship. A LPR is to be admitted on the US green card not the foreign passport.
