1. Exercising dual citizenship,
2. Possessing and/or using a foreign passport,
3. Military service or a willingness to bear arms for a foreign country,
4. Accepting educational, medical, or other benefits, such as retirement and social welfare, from a foreign country,
5. Residence in a foreign country to meet citizenship requirements,
6. Using foreign citizenship to protect financial or business interests in another country,
7. Seeking or holding political office in the foreign country,
8. Voting in foreign elections, or
9. Performing or attempting to perform duties, or otherwise acting, so as to serve the interests of another government in preference to the interests of the United States.
