Hello, quick question concerning the “foreign preference” aspect of clearance. I am a dual British-American national and have an opportunity to work in a British Embassy as a locally-employed American staff. My concern is that, if I take the job, it will be viewed later by an investigator as a definite preference for my other nationality.
I have been granted a secret clearance 3 times over the last 7 years for internships with the US State Dept and am hoping that working for a stint as an American in a British embassy will not disqualify me from renewing my secret clearance in the future. If there is anyone in this community with knowledge on the subject of dual citizenship and working for a foreign government (as an American staff), I would be very grateful to hear from you! Thanks in advance.
