I am anxiously trying to get some insight into my situation.
I received a contingent offer with a company (contingent on me passing a top secret/sci with poly). My resume was submitted to the government and the government approved my qualifications. However, because my brother is a dual citizen, we now have to go back to the government and get another approval just for that (for the particular project that they have me slotted for).
A little background on my brother...born and raised in the United States. Got a dual citizenship with Lithuania about a year ago as a means to travel Europe freely and without restrictions. Also, my parents were born in Lithuania but came to the US when they were very young. My brother has no intent on living there and his allegiance is not split. The citizenship was a means to obtain his travel goals.
So here are my questions...
1.) considering that I am being considered for a Top Secret/SCI with poly clearance (for the National Security Agency), how much will the dual citizenship affect me?
2.) Also, why is the company that gave me the contingent offer referring to my brother as a 'foreign national' ? According to the SF86 forms, a foreign national is defined by whether or not you have a US citizenship, which he does.
3). For what reasons could I get denied this top secret/SCI with poly clearance given my brothers situation?
4.) What can I do to mitigate this situation?
Thank you in advance! I have worked very hard to get this position and am very concerned that I may lose the opportunity because of my brother's dual status. Any insight and advice would be GREATLY appreciated!!!
