acero5, you know what you want, don't you? Just follow your heart. Always remember, all these nations evolve and collapse like dream objects. Don't get involve in these things too much. Nations exists only in the mind!

BIG LOL to ujl. What are you smoking, dude? Most be something very powerful. If you see the whole world in mind, you are not outside Nepal, right? Even then just in the same spot where you were born, coz city, studying, better life doesn't matter because everything is inside your mind, right? 

OP is just asking for suggestion, why do you have to shine (yea, right) with your illusion on everything? 

If you don't have anything to offer, may be it's better to shut your p-hole. Don't you think?

May be you have to pay US somekind of tax if you own properties and business outside US. Read some news in bbc while ago but don't know the law of US.

It's a gray area situation. Different people will give you different opinions but from my understanding, a universally accepted bill hasn't been passed. If your main concern is about parental properties and other similar issues, you might wanna tread extremely carefully. In fact, I'd go on to suggest that you waited for a while as I don't really see any benefits of naturalizg unless you're planning on getting married or traveling to Europe (as most EU nations allow you visa free travel for upto 90 days).

If it's patriotism and cutting/keeping ties with Nepal, then you can't go wrong either way.

Thanks for your advise riddle. Yes I am mainly concern about parental properties and stuff and also don't want to have any problems with my siblings regarding all that in future even I trust them right now you never know things might change which happened to my parents with their siblings when they got married and started their own family.

If you become a US citizen, legally you are not allowed to acquire parental property. With NRN ID card, we can acquire certain amount of property according to the location as someone posted above, but only with the money you have earned abroad or in your case, in US. You have to show the proof of income for that. If you, anyway, acquire parental property but one of your siblings go ahead and report that you are not a Nepali citizen anymore, then you will be stripped of that property. If you want to be on safe side in terms of the parental property and want to get US citizenship as well, then you should first clear all the settlements of the property with your parents/siblings, sell all those and then become  US citizen. Otherwise, you have to take a risk. If you dont have any such threats from your parents/siblings, you can still keep them with your nepali nagarikta as long as nobody bothers to report. Another thing after you become a citizen here, you will be liable to pay taxes to US govt. on the income and assets you have in Nepal or any other country. So, you weigh your pros and cons and make a decision.

I guess your family is also eligible for citizenship. If so then why don't you let them be US citizen and you can stay in GC. That way you can buy property in her name and also you or she can also go back to either citizen. just my $0.02 thought.

If property inheritance is your main concern then you have no business naturalizing, just yet. What you could try doing is naturalizing w/o disclosing info about it with anybody else (other than your spouse). But there are risks involved. 

However, if you got screwed after naturalizing, there's also an option of renouncing your citizenship. I'm not sure if Nepali govt. will honor it, though. Even if they did, you probably won't have it easy. 

All things considered, I see no reason why you'd wanna get naturalized - especially if your spouse's immigration process isn't the root cause. 

Good luck.

Note than an NRN card is subject to  terms and conditions that may change without much notice. I wouldn't place too much faith on it. For example, until recently, those with such a card did not need a visa to enter Nepal. However, they are now required to apply for a visa on arrival, have their photographs taken etc and are just exempt from the visa fee  - that too only because they paid the $500 fee for the NRN card. If this is anything to go by, the other benefits too could change over time as well.

My understanding is with current law, nepalese citizenship is void after obtaining US citizenship (or any other country citizenship). Can the void nepalese citizenship be reinstated if the other country citizenship is abandoned? Just curious.

This is very important issue. Most Nepalese have property back home and that could worth millions. If something happens here who knows we may choose to go back. Are anybody debating about dual citizenship? What is a point of paying $ 500 for NRN cards if Bhutanese, Bangladeshi and Indians own citizenship of Nepal. Our culture is to espionage other progress and find a fault to ruin their life. I am pretty sure "idk2013" own neighbors and cousins will report wherever they should be to lose his/her wealth.

Sorry, I am referring to "acer05" not "idk2013". Probably its applicable to all Nepalese.

@ euta_nepali
I am not a lawyer or a specialist in the field, but to my knowledge, Nepalese citizenship will be reinstated if foreign citizenship is abandoned.
