If someone who has become a US citizen (who holds dual citizenship with the US and the country of birth) decides to go to Europe and potentially move there, would they forfeit their US citizenship once they apply for European citizenship? If let's say that person decides to move to Poland from the US would they have to go through a similar process in becoming a Polish citizen? How difficult would it be to attain Polish citizenship for that person?...and what if that person is married with a spouse who holds Polish citizenship, is it then easier? Also, if that someone goes to Europe on a student visa, is it generally difficult to renew? Thank you so much!
US citizenship will not be stripped until the US citizen makes some "affirmative" intentional acts to renounce US citizenship. As far as Poland issues, you should consult with an attorney who handles European immigration.
