Moving back to SA- need to find out if I have lost my SA citizenship?
I was born in the UK but when I was a child my parents moved to SA, I had permanent residence and then when I was 22 I became a citizen by naturalisation. My husband is a born south african. We moved to the UK 17 years ago. We are now wanting to move back to SA but I don't know if I have lost my citizenship? I still have my SA ID book that states SA citizen. I have been in touch with the SA high commission and they told me to fill in and send off the B1-529 form the determination of citizenship status. I got a email from them today advising me to apply for a SA passport which I have never had before, I have always used my british passport. The forms they told me to send off for are DHA-73 and DHA-9. If I get a SA passport will I loose my British passport and will I have problems in the future if I ever decide to return to the UK? I also have been told that I can go back there and sort out my paperwork over there as it would be quicker that way. The gentleman I spoke to at the high commission said I won't need a visa when going back, I must go back under the 90 days clause and then go to the high commission over there and ask for a extention until my documents get sorted. Has anyone got advise for me? I am not used to travelling, the only time I have was coming over to the UK 17 years ago and I have never left since. I am scared that when I get to the airport I will have problems if I don't have a visa and they won't let me into SA. Advise PLEASE? Very confused.
