Tina Turner To Give Up U.S. Citizenship
BERN, Switzerland (WKRC) -- 73-year-old Tina Turner has plans to formally relinquish her U.S. citizenship.
According to an activity report from the U.S. Embassy in Bern, Switzerland; Turner went to the embassy on October 24th to sign and officially relinquish her right to U.S. Citizenship under section 349 (a)(1) of the Immigration and Naturalization act.
Turner has lived in Switzerland for nearly twenty years. On April 10th she took the oath of Swiss nationality and declared she no longer had any ties to the United States except, according to reports, family, and has no plans to reside in the United States in the future.
Apparently, because Turner has taken Swiss citizenship with the intent to lose her U.S. citizenship, there are no penalties that go along with these actions. This is a much less complex way of relinquishing U.S. citizenship as opposed to formal renunciation.
