I am a dual citizen (US and Ireland), and I have been told that I must renounce my Irish citizenship before I can join as an officer.
Are there any recruiters out there who know exactly what this process entails? Do I sign a form or take an oath that renounces it, or do I have to actually prove that I have gone to the Irish embassy and handed in my Irish passport and formally renounced it in front of an Irish embassy official?
If there is a form, could someone point me to it so I can take a look?
That is true. You must send your foreign passport (if you have one) to the embassy with proof (certified mail), and usually write a letter to the embassy renouncing it with a copy to the recruiter.
Each country has different procedures for renouncing your citizenship. These are usually the minimums.
Ask the recruiter to call "MEPS" to see what documents they will require.
