uk, like the US, is one of the few countries that doesn't check your passport when you leave.

US citizens are required to enter and exit the US under their US passport.

OK, that's interesting to know.

I remember going to France once and being waved in, then subjected to a thorough bag search and questioning on the way out. It was as if they were really wound up about the possibility of drugs being smuggled out of the country .. a little selfish of them, I thought.

Correct.
Whenever I return home I always make sure to use my Aussie one.

And getting an EU one was pricey, but would have saved me thousands in reciprocity taxes and visas over the years. Actually, $AUD600 this year alone with travels to Argentina, Brazil and other Sth American countries.

I have both US and Canadian. Crossing to NY is easier when using the US passport. I see little benefit in having both - especially the Canadian.

I'm a dual-passporter, and I can commend Saddleback Leather's passport wallets. They fit two comfortably, and they're damned well near indestructible. Affiliate link for them is at the top of the styleforum page.

By the way, while I have dual citizenship, I only hold on passport - a US passport. I'm American bitches.

On the off chance that an incident happens anywhere internationally, I'd rather be recognized as a Canadian than an American.

Canada seems to do less things to make their citizens get beheaded.

Apart from the fact that it's nice to be able to take part in the whole democratic process in your country of residence...

So far, I am a dual citizen. My parents are from El Salvador, which means that I am a citizen of that country. I am also a United States citizen and am in the works of getting my Spanish citizenship (blood lineage makes it easy).

Has anyone encountered a problem when stating place of birth for your other passport?

This one from Levenger is not specifically designed as a dual passport holder, however it looks like it would absolutely do the job. If you click on the "more photos" link under the initial picture, you will see a few more views of it, and the photo on the bottom left shows that the passport pocket is designed with a flap rather than being sewn down on all sides, so the thickness of two passports would most likely fit Im sure.

I've never had immigration check my passport when leaving the U.S. Yes, the airline looks at it at check-in ... primarily to be assured that I'll have what I need to get through immigration at the other end of my journey.

I hold a Canadian and a UK passport. Although born in England, I have never traveled on the UK passport. I got the UK one when I was single and thinking about working there. Now, using the UK passport to pass through lines quickly would be a no-go, as I'd be leaving my wife to wade through the non-EU lines, which would not make ours a happy marriage. And if I travel for work, I use the Cdn one, since I work for the feds. It would look suspicious for a gov't official to travel on a foreign passport.

Secondly, if you live in the US and are the right age, you should have already registered with Selective Services. Even when I was over 25 and going to grad school in the US, I had to show proof of Selective Services registration. You can get drafted whether you are a citizen or just a legal, permanent resident is what I learned.

what's the matter with conscription? and i'm a canadian citizen living in canada (mother's american (and fits all the necessary criteria), hence the eligibility) so i don't have any familiarity with what Selective Services is.

Ability to work in both countries is helpful.

Don't worry about conscription. There's not going to be a draft, if there is, you likely won't be selected, and if you're selected, you can always dodge the draft. I definitely wouldn't go overseas to die in the service of some corporation.

as mentioned above, i'm simply canadian at the moment. would i then have to start paying taxes to the irs?

thanks for the info you two.
