Dual Citizenship: Guidebook to Dual Citizenship for Korean Adoptees
Global Overseas Adoptees' Link, Jan 13, 2011 - Reference - 64 pages
†There were many reasons why G.O.A.'L launched the Dual Citizenship Campaign.†The system allowed Korean adoptees to maintain dual citizenship was not widely known by the public and the adoption agencies actively discouraged adoptive parents from attaining dual citizenship for their child. Furthermore, the adoptee would have had to choose one citizenship at the age of 20 or 22 (depending on gender).
Additionally, G.O.A.'L feels it is important to acknowledge Korean adoptees did not voluntarily give up their Korean citizenship. Under the current Nationality Law (effective until December 31, 2010) Korean citizenship was revoked without ever providing consent for this. By introducing a law that allows dual citizenship, Korean adoptees are given a choice again. With this in mind and feeling that one has a right to obtain something that was taken from them in the first place, G.O.A.'L initiated the Dual Citizenship Campaign.
G.O.A.'L has endeavored to make sure the information within this book is as accurate and current as possible, however, inadvertent errors and changes may occur.
