Whee! After 14 years in the country, 400 euro and one language test, I am finally a citizen!
I am quite happy and still a bit incredulous. It only took the Immigration Service 6 months, I was expecting 12.
Answers to the common questions:
- yes, of course I am still a US citizen as well,
- no, this doesn't affect my taxes and/or social entitlements in either country,
- I am so looking forward to doing my part in voting Keskusta out of power in 2011.
I'll write more about the whole process later.
