I am applying for the army HPSP program where I require a secret level security clearance.
I was born in the united states but I have a dual citizenship in south korea due to my parent’s nationality. I have used my foreign passport once in the past and I have submitted my foreign passport and signed the citizenship renunciation form. My father works in south korea but has no affiliation with the south korean government while I am living with my mother. I am sponsoring my mother for permanent residentship and she has no affiliation with the south korean government and wants to live in the USA to be close to her children and to work as a teacher.
I understand that foreign influence may be a problem in obtaining a security clearance, but is my situation indicate that I will not be able to obtain a clearance at all?
