Dual Citizenship for Korean Adoptees

This week 13 Korean adoptees were granted Korean citizenship in the first dual citizenship ceremony held since Korea changed it’s laws about dual citizenship.

I’m far from an expert on this subject but I am trying to gather more information. If you’re interested in more information about dual citizenship for Korean adoptees, here’s a couple of places you can go to learn more.

G’OAL (Global Overseas Adoptees’ Link), one of the groups who held get the legislation passed, has an online forum where you can get more information. The address is www.goal.or.kr/forum/. You’ll have to register for this site.

And G’OAL has also published a booklet on the subject that can be purchased from Amazon. Right now it’s only in Kindle edition, but I’ve been assured they are working on releasing the booklet in other formats. You can check find the Kindle edition here: http://www.amazon.com/Dual-Citizenship-ebook/dp/B004R9Q5MC/ref=sr_1_fkmr0_3?ie=UTF8&qid=1303492601&sr=1-3-fkmr0.

As I learn more, I’ll pass along what I learn and where I’m finding the information. I excited that this is now possible for our kids!
