Renunciant Resources

This page will collect resources of interest to those seeking to renounce their citizenship.

As my own story is that of an American planning to do this in Slovakia, I’ll be putting up things immediately relevant to my situation. If you have something pertinent to other countries to submit, please send it and I’ll work it into the page.

WARNING: Renunciation of citizenship is a very serious matter. The world of today does not treat stateless persons kindly, and renouncing your citizenship may lead to any number of horrible consequences including arrest, deportation, banishment, imprisonment, internment at “refugee camps”, denial of human rights, asset seizure, loss of ability to travel, loss of employment, loss of professional licenses, disconnection from the banking system, trouble obtaining housing, and on and on. Use the information provided here at your own risk.
